Good for you knucklehead. Be safe and wise during your rides.

I just had a total hip replacement (left side) and will experience a long layoff as well. Probably have to wait (between healing and physical therapy) 3-4 months before riding backroads (seated) and 6 months before riding dirt (moving around on the bike). Getting a leg over a bike may require a different approach. The XR650R has a kickstand so I can step up. I'm thinking the CR250R will need a strong kickstand as well.

It has been 2 weeks since surgery. I am already walking without crutches or cane and working very hard in PT. Every night I am sore to the point of hobbling around. It is a good time to order some parts. lol

Good stuff Knuklehead !! :banghead:

My one piece of advice to you would be to get yourself a Leatt Brace neck brace, I plan on getting myself one before riding next Summer. Better safe than sorry. :busted:

Dizamn,I guess you are living up to your screen name. J/K. Be careful with that neck you might need that particular part and I have not seen a replacement in any catalogue.
