Hip, hip, hooray!
I read Cliff Millgate’s letter about his hip problem (MCN ask the expert, April 26) with some sympathy. I had a VFR1200, which I loved, but my arthritic hip didn’t! I could ride for a maximum of an hour before pain stopped play.
The answer was two-fold… Replace the VFR with a Ducati Multistrada – this transformed my ride and allowed me to sit in the saddle for at least a couple of hours in comfort, even doing 400 mile days. Highly recommended… but so is the second remedy - a total hip replacement which made things even better! Give both a try, Cliff! Dave Little, email
