Sorry 'bout your hand....but NOT DRIVING THE CAR...that is just cruel and unnecessary punishment. Well, maybe not unnecessary, but definitely CRUEL !!!

Ouch

You're still kinda lucky. If the wife's not watching, you could still slip away for a little grind through the gears. I was in a sold cast from my knee to my toes on my left foot for 7 weeks. (i.e. no clutch!)

The cast came off on Dec 19th. It was very stiff and sore, but I took DHG 294 out X-mas shopping on Dec 20th. It hurt like hell, but you couldn't wipe the you know what eating grin off my face as I blasted through the gears with Limp Bizkits "Break Stuff" cranked on the 460. Heaven!

Dfresh,
DHG 294

If she was a good wife like mine, she would do the shifting while you do the driving. Mine is pretty good at the left handed shift. Get well soon.

Yeah, something just doesn't sound right here...you don't need your left hand!! You have a perfectly good right with which to shift and a knee (or two) with which to steer so what's her problem!?!?! :grin: :grin: :grin:

Speedy recovery to you!!!

Thanks to all for the well wishing. As for the car, I've decided to give it a go. As long as I don't run in to any emergency situations, I'll be fine.
I'll just stay away from emergency situations! LOL.
Wish me luck.

Funny thing is, for the week that my wife drove my car, she got two compliments a day. I guess it's just easier for guys to compliment girls.

Bummer Dude ;-(. My snowboarding days are over, but I still ride my mountian bike and I'm wating for the day I fall and break something. But all of my vehicals are manual transmision, so I guess I still drive the Bullitt if that happens :wink:

Heal soon!

Well, I don't have THAT much in my bike :smile:, but it's a great bike, I love it.

It's a GT Backwoods...it's all silver with purple accents...oh, and skull and crossbones valve stems, of course. We ride on the Katy Trail here in Missouri and usually take the side routes up to the wineries for a change of pace....those hills go STRAIGHT up! :grin: When we go, we do about 30-50 miles each time.

MY WIFE LOVES HOT CARS AND HAS AS MUCH OF A INTEREST IN THEM A I. STRANGE IS THAT SHE DOES NOT HAVE ANY INTEREST IN DRIVING MANUAL TRANSMISSION VEHICLES. TOO BAD FOR HER, YIPEE FOR ME, BULLIT ALL FOR MYSELF.

Hi Donna,

I love Mountian Biking. I have a GT Avalanche. A few upgrades, imagine that<G>. I have a photo of it on the front of my WEB site.

My brother got me hooked on this :wink: I have a bad knee back from Football and Wrestling days ;-(

If you get to Norhtern California, bring your bike. We have some KILLER places to ride.

Take care.

Bud
