Not that it matters to anybody but I got my bike out of the basement today and went for my first ride of the season. Actually, it was my first ride in almost a year since I fubar-ed my left hand with the table saw and removed my left index finger. Luckily the remaining mobility issues with my hand do not really hamper my ability to use the clutch. I am ecstatic that I can still ride without any serious issues. Now if I could just find the liner for my jacket.....

Congrats on getting back on a bike and glad your medical issues didn't keep you from riding again.

Nah, you didn't kill it. I guess I'm just a lurker here and keep my head down so most of my stuff does not get replied to. Thanks for the good comments from those who posted, though. I appreciate it.

20K is 3rd world country cost. I had just graduated after my return to college and had no insurance or permanent job yet. The bills were 60-70K all told. Luckily medicaid came through and I didn't have to declare bankruptcy. They couldn't save the finger in the end after 4 months or trying. But my hand still pulls a clutch so I guess it could be worse.
