I have been having back problems since 2004 it finally led me to a lower back operation last year. This is what led me to my Wing.
I over did it at work and at home for 3-4 months and my back finally gave out while on my Wing. All I can say is I am so glad I was on my Wing instead of any other bike. the pain was blinding
and would come on like lightning when I had to put my feet down at lights. it was all I could do to get my Wing home and get that damn kick stand down. If it wasnt for the comfort of the Wing I am sure I would not have made it home.

From my experience it is a long road back with back problems. I wish you luck with it. Eric

There's a lot to be said for our 'couches'. We're very quick to howl about the stuff we disapprove of, but we often forget just how good they really are.

I know just what you mean. I've also had lower back surgery.

That is one of the greatest and most true quotes.
I'm extremely guilty of that, on all of my projects.

I wish you the best in recovery from the back injury.

I fell off a ladder in 1979 and it pretty much ended my electrical career with a broken back. I fell on hard times and had to sell my HD and everything else I owned. Out of desperation, I used my GI Bill to go to College 10 years out of high school.

Thank you God, the US Army and all of the tax payers of America.

As a result of that fall, I was able to retrain, start a different career, got sober, and eventually ended up on the best motorcycle made. My made to fit Wing. I out grew my pirate uniform long ago.

Life is good.
