I remember reading that a few forum members had hip surgery at one time or another. I'm scheduled to go in for right hip surgery in 10 days and want to know what effect this should have on my riding the Burgman. I've not discussed it with the doctor yet, but can guess what his answer will be. At this time, I can ride the Burgman much further than I can drive a cage before the onset of excessive pain. Not having to use my foot for the gas and being able to change position of the leg makes all the difference in the world. The doctor said I should be able to drive my truck to work (84 miles each way) in 8-10 weeks after the surgery. Should I be able to ride the Burgman along the same time frame, before then, or after? Any advice or opinions would be greatly appreciated.
