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)

Yes mine is very stiff and I do most of my riding on bumpy mountain roads. Asked the Yamy mechanics and they told me how to soften it up and was given a tool when I bought the bike. However I was unable to turn the adjustment myself so I will have them do it next week at the shop and will post results. It rides much softer with 2 up but I weigh only 150 pounds and I think they had a much hevyer person in mind for the stock adjustment. I was told front shocks have no adjustment.
