Great news.  I’m happy for you, but it sounds like you don’t need anyone’s help at that.   I’d be happy as crap too.

Edit: first real ride . Perfect. Feel like brand new. With both hips replaced feels like im 30 yes younger. No pain: full range of motion. No issues whatsoever. Please pass this report onto someone who might be getting prosthetic hip replacement and is worried it might affect or stop the ability to ride a motorcycle. Thanks and happy Friday!

That's great news!  Fortunately for me, so far, most of my mechanicals are still working okay and I might have 3-4 more good years left in them.
