The repairs are done after my October off when I hit the diesel. I could have ridden sooner. While the hand is still painful I can still operate the clutch. What I couldn’t do was manipulate fiddly nuts and bolts and pliers which was necessary for doing the repairs. This weekend that changed and in anticipation of the first sunny spring day I thought I’d get the bumble bee fixed pronto.
Well the time finally came for the K-wires to be pulled out of my thumb. They don’t mess around with anesthesia as it is a quick procedure but it does hurt somewhat. In the 5 weeks that the cast was on the skin begins to grow around the pins. The first pin came out without too much trouble but that second pin was stubborn.
