It was 37o out on the slab today.     :H

Great to see that your knee is coming along fine  :thumb
I have a ride mate who was told he will need a knee replacement and he is wondering how long he will be off the bike :fp
But it is only a FJR1300 so I may be able to take it for a spin for him  :grin

The surgeon told me 12 months from date of surgery the secreet is to get stuck into physio as early as possible before surgery so everything strengthens up beforehand that way it makes physio easier after surgery. :dred11 :dred11

Thanks guys it was certainly good to blow the cobwebs out. There's still a way to go yet but at least I know the knee's improving and I can stop going stir crazy and all going well  I'll see you mexicans on 10/12/16 with a special delivery for Mr Murphy. :dred11 :dred11 :dred11.

IMHO it's the scarity of surgeons where you live that prevents you from finding one who'll clear you to ride but not for work.
I hope you'll be back on the bike in no time. It's too hot to ride now in any case.  :H

Update on marathon. day b4 Good Friday was diagnosed with non reducible hernia then yesterday have orthopaedic appointment and find out that while everything is good with my knee I now have severe arthritis in my hip ie bone on bone so more surgeries to put me out of action when the voices in my head tell me to put up or shut up so looks like a long stretch of riideless days for me.

I'm thinking of you Paul. Apart from not being able to ride are you still able to get out and about?
And what are you doing about that 4-letter word, 'work'?

Yeah still getting out. Went back to work in January for 3 weeks but the pain  was that bad at least after yesterday I know why now so work's off the menu again but at least the insurance are still paying my loss of earnings. I'm going to try and force myself to one ride at the end of May to the Yongala RTE but not planning yet but I need to blow the cobwebs out b4 I decide on surgery.

Latest update I go under the knife again within the next 3 months for total hip replacement.I'm currently debating whether to sell the beast as she hasn't had a real ride for the last 12 months and it 'll probably be another 12 months now until she gets used for what she's meant to do. :dred11 :dred11 :dred11

Thanks Kev. Hopefully won't be off a bike too long just rethinking my riding style by going back to a cruiser but that's in the thought bank at the moment. Get the hip out the way first.

My wife had a hip replacement (RHS) and was back on the ST13 in less than a year as a pillion.

Thanks for that info. I'm trying to keep an open mind that everything'll work but have a couple of plan B's just in case.
