Well after more than twenty years of walking like a duck and riding mainly in a locked in position due to back and hip problems I finally got my right (first) hip replacement last night. After 16 hr's there is no pain nothing but Tylenol and I touched my toes for the first time in 15 years. I was forced to take last year off from riding because I could no longer straddle the seat but now I am able to spread my legs to over 60 degs. 2 nd hip in 4 weeks I will be ready for this season look out 10,000 miles and every drag race this season. PS my doctor rides a skidoo ace I said I would take him this winter and show him the light - look Yamaha here comes another believer!
