Nice bike. Shame about the hip thing. Good luck with the sale. Someone will get a good one.

Only time you feel the weight of a bike is trying to pick it up off the ground, something we all try to avoid.
How tall are you mate?
This could be a valid case for a lowering link to get your fine machine down a coupla inches and give a feeling of security.
Hope you can hang in and keep riding one way or another.

Thank you all for the help & advice. I would love to keep riding this bike, and not have to buy something smaller & lighter...
Give the hip awhile to heal, I broke mine 2 years ago and its just feeling about 70% now. Keep the bike you will be fine.

I have an inflamed labrum, as well as arthritis[not just in my hips] But that is my main source of pain @ the time...I do not want the THR surgery. I am looking into alternatives such as stem cell procedure. If I do decide on it, and have it done ? I will post about it here, just so others will be aware.

I have heard +/- about both surgical & non-surgical methods & procedures . ....Damn hard to decide just what to do....

Maybe a Vegas or an Octane even would be a lot more manageable
