 I'm jealous. I got nada. I'm currently overseas in a location that I can't disclose right now thousands of miles away from my wife and kids. So I'm sitting in my tiny little choo reading about all of you guys that get to ride your bikes.

 @dbarnes6891 Thank you, truly appreciate your sacrifice for all of our benefit! I'm going to hobble out to my bike to go for a quick spin for you (I broke my heel 3 months ago & just started "walking" last week) right now.

 @dbarnes6891 thank you so much for your service! You're doing a great duty for our country. My biggest regret is having not served. Tried to enlist twice.

 @therealtylerdurden: No dude, they are out there doing the bidding of the people who want a NWO! You americans(the new communists of the planet)should do some research and keep the political crap off pink bike. Nothing but a bunch of people that want to tell everybody else what to do and I am sick of it. Why don't you fix your own country first before you destroy the rest of the world?

 @makkman: You're not as enlightened as you think you are, dipshit. Our leader for the past 8 years may have had a lot of commie tendencies, but he does not define this country as a whole. You assuming he does is no better than dumbf*cks booing servicemen when they return home overseas because you disagree with the war, rioting against police doing their job because ONE officer made a mistake or the media portrayed a rightful action as a wrongful one, or being racist because of the actions of a very few. In short, go f*ck yourself.
  • + 3
 @makkman: by the way, you bitching out troops online is no better than booing them at an airport when they get home- and quite frankly, you're booing on the wrong f*cking doorstep. If you feel the need to whine and cry, do it at the White House.

 I feel for you buddy. I'm six months post surgery for the same thing. The bad news: you're more than 6 months from totally recovery, probably closer to 9-12. The good news: you're about a month from getting started on your rehab and 12 weeks from pushing yourself hard. Not gonna lie to you, the first 2 months suck ass, but if things go well and you work at it you'll be on a road bike by spring and some light duty mtn bike by late summer. chin up and good luck!
