So I got confirmation last  week that I getting my knee replacement surgery May 24. Gonna rehab hard and hope to be back in the saddle for this trip.

I wish all the luck on a job well done. I am on the threshold of looking at a knee replacement myself. When  and how bad it needs to get before doing one I have no idea. But will be interested in hearing about your experience.

Well I already have had both hips replaced, and the left knee has been a problem since I was in my 20s but the doc wouldn't replace the knee back then cause I was too young. I wear a brace on it most days but it's to the point lately of keeping me from sleeping. Everyone says that the knee replacement is more painful and a longer recovery then the hip....I guess I'm about to find out.

I joined VentureRider last Fall shortly after buying my 1st RSV. Lot of value in being a member of a good forum like this and really appreciate all the knowledge I have gained from members here... spent the winter going down a rabbit hole and had the bike stripped down its underwear (OCD like that), I have bought parts from several members and did many upgrades over winter, been riding it anytime I can leave the truck at home :-). Took a little getting used to the size of this beast but I really enjoy riding this couch around, most comfortable motorcycle I have owned! Honestly I am hooked now and doubt I would own anything smaller in the future and thinking at some point down the line I will likely transition into a trike when the time is right. 

Anyway, the wife and I love Asheville and only live a couple hours away. I just booked a cabin for Aug 18 & 19 (on new map its DC-6, located on the river & on the old map its listed as T-6). Had to find a cabin with a bathroom if I wanted the wife to come, lol. We look forward to meeting everyone!

So I thought I would check in and see if this thing is still on as I haven't seen any new conversations about it. I sure how so.....this event is my motivation that's pushing me through the painful rehab from my knee replacement. The bruising on my leg is amazing.....I have never been one to bruise much so the purple and black and yellows are wonderful to look at....LOL.

Looking forward to the ride and to meet everyone.

Come on down this group is not about what you ride it is more about you riding and fellowship with the rest of us,  besides it's been awhile since I have seen the can am up close.

We have a lot of spyder riders in the club now and as always it is as much about the people as it is about the machine. I would not be surprised if a tech section on the spyder gets added to the tech talk section. There is already a gold wing section added. so in other words welcome home :beer:
