But after only four weeks the doc­tors at or­thteam.com gave me the all-clear to get back in the sad­dle. Thank­fully the RT is so easy to ride it didn’t cause any com­pli­ca­tions and I was out at first light the very next day. Not rid­ing for a month was al­most as painful as break­ing my col­lar­bone, but thank­fully my RT was kind to me when I came back. For a big girl she’s a dod­dle to ride at a se­date speed, how­ever I’m not up for get­ting the big girl onto her cen­tre­stand – not just yet!

Chad’s fixed and back on board the RT 007323
