Pain in the neck!!!
After seeing this post from my good friend Crownfire.
"Welcome from Mississippi. Ref may have gone from a Wing to an ST, but last weekend he was whining about his rear hurting from the miles we traveled.
Mature, hmmmm, I think you are hinting older or you haven't followed some of us yet."
I decided to respond in a new thread.
First off, My Butt never hurt. I have a Russell Day Long seat and still love it. However, my neck and shoulders were screaming the entire trip.
We have talked about this some years ago when I owned the WING and the responses were:
1. Grip too tight. Maybe a lack of cruise was part of the problem.
2. Helmet too heavy. Okay, when I replace, I will look for a lighter helmet
What I have found since being home was my shoulder pads in my jacket were possibly pushing down on a nerve in my shoulder. I have removed those and have not had the pain. I will put in a longer ride Sunday and see if the shoulder pad removal is the way to go.
I have read several threads on several forums about neck and shoulder pain and no one has mentioned the shoulder pads.
Now the question: Has anyone tried this shoulder pad removal to help with this pain?
