Glad to hear you are on the mend and out riding again. With a fused left ankle and a right knee replacement, I can identify with leg problems. I, too, stopped riding for about a year when the GW became to much to handle. The Swing has allowed me to enjoy two wheels again. It's was spring like weather here, late January. Friend and I made a nice ride up the west side of the river to Natchez then thru Miss. back roads for about 300miles one day last week. Fantastic ride!
