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)
Get a Star Custom Cruise Seat and scrap that stock seat. It was a killer on my back also. The better seat has thicker padding and back of seat supports my back much better. I'm an old Fart (51) and i need it!
