Well four months and 2 days ago was the accident. Today, I was cleared by my doctor to return to work in full capacity as a Wildland Firefighter. I also consider that as to mean I get to ride the KLR again. The bike is back in good condition, I have given her a few test rides (nothing more than a few miles) and although my back was sore it was a doable ride. I will get a new helmet this weekend and give the KLR a good distance ride on pavement, just to see how things feel. I anticipate that all will go well. In order to do my job I must complete an annual Work Capacity Test (WCT). The WCT consists of carrying a 45 lb. weighted vest on a 3 mile course of level terrain in 45 minutes or less - 45 lbs. 3 miles, 45 minutes. If I can do that I can definately handle a few road bumps on the KLR. The WCT is on friday morning. The ride will be Saturday.
Ooohh I'm so excited.
