    I'm okay. Chin scar is a bit bumpy, but it'll be okay. Otherwise no problems. Rode 4hrs yesterday and 2.5hrs the day before.

    Got the bike home today and pulled the mudguard off.

    I'm not so sure there is guaranteed as strong a correlation between whatever is on an MRI image and what most people are feeling. Plenty of people have no symptoms and show degenerated discs and everything on MRIs. The image you're painting there of something pressing on the nerve causing direct pain also might necessarily be accurate and/or helpful.

    I'm speaking from experience here, as I have spent decades with chronic back pain, multiple disc bulges and degenerated discs, plus some other spinal deformities in my lumbar spine. So my back pain will never be gone gone ... but what made the biggest diff was some sessions with the Physio I have been working with to change the way I think about and visualise my pain ... pain, after all, is a perception, and there is a huge body of actual evidence that supports that chronic pain especially can be reduced with mental techniques etc.

    @dancing james it's weird with exercise and back pain. Not sure if I can pinpoint any correlation for myself, but I've come to the conclusion that yoga does me no good back ache wise. Neither does Pilates. Lifting helped most in the past, but every now and then I do a bad one and that makes a negative impact for a few days. Least I feel back pain is when I do hard interval sort of stuff, like 30/30s, regularly. Which I don't atm, and now my back is sore.

    Hope you get better soon.

    My friend has most likely secured a load60 because that's what was still in stock at the Australian salary sacrifice dealership. Should be okay size wise he said.

    I can't believe they don't have redundant cables for the steering. Douze did a better job of this.
