Wow Ransom, Iím glad youíre alive! I hope your recovery goes well from this point. Also that the kid had plenty of insurance.

Looking forward to seeing the primer streak run again soon. Or pull the fairings off and go for fastest unblown? I need to check that, I think itís Steve.

I know this is off topic but how is that reverse shoulder replacement working for you?
I detached 3 of 4 shoulder tendons through the years due to abuse (if you're dumb you have to be tough).
The surgeon is saying that a reverse replacement is the only solid option but will limit my strength where I'll have to retire.
He says there are other options but they have a higher failure rate.
Thanks

I had the surgery on August 17th and my last Physical Therapy will be next week.  I have a lot of motion that I didn't have before, but of course it isn't "normal".  Pain is GREATLY reduced and I can work on the dyno or a motorcycle again. 

The limitations are I can't raise my arm straight up near my head and reach the small of my back without a 2 part motion, which is a limitation of the joint itself. However, I have nearly normal motion everywhere else. I can tuck, before my arm wouldn't rotate at all.   My humerus head had completely rotted away and the surgeon had to cut into the bone a lot further than normal.

I have no restriction on weight lifting below my waist and suppose to be 25 lbs above the waist.  But, I've been working out with 30 lb weights at PT. I've even been doing push ups, albeit on a 24" incline, but push ups none the less.

It takes a LONG time to recover, but it was the best decision I've made.
This is Important!   Make sure the surgeon that operates has done a lot of reverse shoulders.  When I did my research on the operation, that was the biggest determining factor of how successful the outcome would be. 

Dean:  Nope, The kid had the lowest coverage allowed.  Paid enough for my insurance deductibles for 2 years.

Thanks for the info, it is good to hear how things turn out for normal people, you know like motorcycle racers and firemen.
He said it was going to be a long road whatever choice I make, reverse replacement, cadaver graft/patch or superior capsule reconstruction but in my case the bone is solid so that's going for me.
It sounds like you are ahead of the game being 4 months post surgery which says as much about how hard you have worked as anything. :tu:
Take care of that shoulder and Merry Christmas

I'm happy to hear the recovery is going well. Good luck to you and MJ in 2021 (and to us all). 

I did some digging into the fastest unblown bike, and I think it's still Ryan O at 218.2 in Beeville 2013. Steve went 217.8 this year. I can't find a faster naked bike without a turbo. Thing is - Ryan's and Steve's bikes were not spraying - so I would think that your bonkers nitrous bike would go faster without the fairing. 220+ I would guess, without doing anything fancy to the chassis, just yank the fairing and zip tie things down.

Cheers :)
