Go to the gym and take steroids.
After this current course of anti inflammatories are finished I'm going to start weight training. I've been on between 120-240mg of codeine most days since January simply to be able to breathe without being in pain. Not being able to ride has really gotten to me, so changing to a bike I can easier ride for now should make me feel a lot better.
Hopefully the weight training pays off and I stop damaging muscles so much. Then I may get a bigger bike in a few years, if I feel the need to change again :lol:

It would definitely be worth trying the Low Ride Height Street Triple R (it's a factory option). It's really very light at about 168kg wet (from memory) and the seat height comes in at 780mm.
I did like the triple. However I felt the riding position was uncomfortable for me.
