did a 100+ mile ride today with my buddies

Back was a little sore in the begining, but after riding for a bit on a crappy paved highway, hitting ruts and stuff that I could not get around, I got off my bike and could not stand straight. back was jacked up badly... After some rest and some Motrin, its a little better...I know the rear shock is adjustable (or so I have read) but wondering if I have any choices to loosen it up a bit(aftermarket shock), so it can absorb the bumps... I pretty sure my crotch rocket had a good rear suspension (but that might have also been due to if I see a bump, I could lift my ass off the seat)

Yeah, pushing 280 here with no softness of suspension issues, I am replacing some of my seat foam with a gel pad though, did that on my last VTX and it worked miracles, that bike was tricked to he'll and back with basically no suspension and the gel pad worked on many a 400 mile day trip, it ain't fun when ya get off and can't feel your taint any more
