Pot metal? That is a premium Suzuki part!

It was the slowest "get off" I have every experienced.

I was stopped at junction of 16 and parkway, my left leg gave out, and I just fell over.

Been diagnosed with osteoarthritis in left hip. In extreme pain.

Sorry for the arthritis--it sux no matter where you got it. Hope you can avoid joint replacement, like exercises-weight loss (not that u need it)-etc. That being said, hip replacement is probably the easiest joint as far as recovery goes. <olfart>
