    HI - What did I miss?

    Hey from New Zealand!
    I'm back after a couple of years away from the board.
    A shoulder injury (mountain biking) put me down for a long time, but I'm almost done healing and looks like I'll be riding this summer again (middle of winter here in NZ sat the moment).
    how are you all?
    I've really missed you!

    Say, now that you're healed up you could come mountain bike in the states.
    We have some nice trails without all those pesky trees and vegetation blocking your view.

    nice!
    but it was the same old issue that made me crash.
    that pesky old lack of talent.
    gets me every time.
    and oh boy, do you heal slower after 50!!!

    The good and bad about healing over fifty by the Admiral. Bad: like you said it takes longer to heal. The good: The older you get the more you forget how long it took!

    Welcome back and continued healing and not getting more hurt. Wishful thinking anyway!

    If it was a dirty TW I posted a picture of, it couldn't have been mine. Mine are pristine never seen too much mud and dirt. Most street riders. I think my nose just hit the monitor.

    Saw that mountain bikers on the side of that slick rock video before. Stomach queasy stuff for me.
