    Friday afternoon the doctor gave me the OK to resume normal activities
    after my knee reconstruction. Today I jumped back on my Honda Shadow
    and took a ride to Nobby for a camp oven lunch with the Just Rock R&R
    dance club. Great ride out. Interesting ride home. Storm, rain, hail,
    lightning striking all around. Great fun!

    That's great news - did the knee behave? Were you nervous?

    The knee behaved well, but I was nervous. You need a bit of sideways
    strength when you put your feet down on a bike sometimes, I worried
    whether it would fail. It didn't.

    Since then I've ridden from Warwick to Toowoomba (and back) a few times.
    Saves me $10 per trip over the car. 400 trips and I might even have paid
    for my medical costs!

    I should have thought a good deal of the medical expensis would be
    refunded , I got about 3/4 back in-spite of the repairs being average
    it's all there is until UQ starts human testing the work in progress
