Hope the eye surgery went well.

Or you could watch WingAdmins video of his trip to Hocking Hills in Ohio. That will give you the sounds and scenes that will fill in at least 30 mins of your day. And you can replay it, it you need another fix later in the day or tomorrow. Keep the healing process in time for the real weather.

Great ride! Now imagine what it would have looked like if it had been filmed from a Harley.. Did a ride like that in upstate New York (Broome Tioga Chenango,and Delaware counties riding 2 up on a Honda 500/4. Hit a small pothole and my wife grabed me. Seems she was sleeping when I hit the bump., Was a long time ago.

Wasn't too sure that this eye surgery was going as planned. Had double vision and blurry at anything up close. Well. yesterday they took another look at it and realized that there was still a stich in the eye. Had them worried that their fancy camere would not take a picture of the retina, so they asked the Dr that did it and he remembered the stich. Removed it and I am seeing MUCH better. Now, let me ride!!! A few more days, so I will have to tinker on the bikes.

Great news... but still a little frighte’ning that they missed something so important. Modern technology and they can't rely on it! Glad to hear you are better. Now let’s hope the weather co-operates.

What kind of surgery, was it the lasik? I wear glasses now, only within the last 5 years, I am already up to tri-focals....go fig on that. Do not like how they fit in my helmet, would be so much easier if I can just handle the long distance portion of my sight.

Mag, when I had the cataracts done on my eyes, the surgeon did the maths and worked out how to make one eye for distance and one eye for closer work. It is hard for me to tell, as everything is in focus now, and I can see a long way as well as read a newspaper without any glasses/contacts. He said that if my reading became a problem, after the surgery, then to purchase the 'el cheapo' fixed reading glasses and use them. Have not had a problem since.

If you go and make an appointment with an eye surgeon, and see what he can offer. But I must warn you, even in Australia it was not cheap, for each of my cataract operations, but well worth it. You just have to remember that they have stopped making eyes in your size and colour!

Was cataract surgery. Had the left eye done about 4 years ago, and that eye is great. This one is much better now that the stitch is out, but they put in a contact lense after removing the stitch just to protect the eye while the eye heals. Think that all will be OK once they remove the contact. That should happen tomorrow. Heres hoping.. I sure remember when they put the stitch in, I couldn't get my head any farther into the table. LOL Want to get out there and ride my newest toy! Thanks for the concern.
