Hi Scott, what precautions are you taking to prevent a repeat bike accident? :)

He can’t grip the handlebars well . I hold him the whole time and ride slow on back streets with little traffic .
Okay thanks for letting us know. Hope his.grip improves :xflove:

So three days in a row in my friends back yard . Today was a BBQ day and Gandalf had some burger some onion bun and some forbidden cheddar cheese , a long with apple and raw almonds . If it wasn’t for the funky foot action , you’d never know there was anything wrong . Everyone in my neighborhood has concern for Gandalf , witch is funny because they know the birds name , but mine is absent . Couldn’t be happier for my little buddy , plus I get to get out for more then walks . Cheers to all , Scott

Number one favorite tree , but to close to a 100 foot cliff . Sure hope he get his sure footing back .
Omg! I’d be freaking out! :eek: are you sure that’s safe?

Rode our favorite fourteen mile trek to the local marina . Pic is lunch spot and halfway point of ride . He actually was held the whole time , but loves to perch on handlebars when stopped . He also managed to climb out of inside cage area to play on top of cage witch is another first in recovery . Cheers to all , Scott B4914516-8E87-4EEF-871A-5819A932E683.jpeg

Thought Id post the latest . It’s been several months and birds pretty much back from the dark side . Still a little slow with the right foot , but that’s it . I’m definitely stoked . Even rides on handlebar when there’s no traffic . Thanks again for everyones help , support and love . Cheers , Scott & Gandalf
