Back ache - Sorted
« on: April 16, 2013, 06:14:43 PM »
I have had horrific back ache when riding the bike. Enough to make me think of changing it. I think I have sussed it though. Tonight I rode through the village and place my feet forward and lower. The release of tension from my back was immediate. I just have to find some front foot rest lowerers now.

Interesting because I got a bit of back ache.  I try to use master Yoda position?  To stretch it out.

I had the back ache for the first couple of rides/hours, but I think my back has adjusted to the more upright position ( came from a cruiser). No issue now after 2,000km.

I read about the Yoda position but think I shall have to do more. I have read dozens of articles about back ache and it appears that it may be quite common on tourers. I shall try some drops on the pegs and see where we go from there.

Very good Chaos. I might try shifting my feet so the forefoot is on the pegs instead of the arch.

I did check last night and I move my feet back and put the balls of my feet on the rests not the arch.
