    Thaanks, mine falls into that time period. I will have to match model and serial numbers. You would think that Sunrise would contact the owners. Sigh!
    Every day I wake up is a good one

      I've had my leg pop out of the foot stirrups on my handcycle at speed. Pretty unsettling watching your leg rubber band itself under your seat at 30mph.

        I really could've gone without that visualization. How much damage?

          Other than a really dusty shoe full of gravel, zero. Although I can't feel my legs so until the cure comes around I may never know if it blew out a knee....
