I would prefer the resurfacing because it allows for more long term options.

I would also like to know more about a hip fusion. Would it be possible to ride motorcycles at all after a hip fusion? During my first doctor consultation he suggested hip fusion, but at the next visit he said I should not consider fusion.

Thanks to all for contributing. This is great information, please keep it coming. I will continue to collect comments for a few more days, and then try to summarize what I learned from this and other postings.

I look forward to the day that I can enjoy riding something more entertaining than the electric shopping carts at Wal-Mart.

Always get a second opinion on something this serious.
