Back Pain with the Wife
Ok, I know this has been discussed to death on this forum but here's my issue. When I ride alone, rear shock on the second notch from the bottom, my back doesn't really bother me all that much. When my wife rides with me, rear shock on the 4th notch from the bottom adjusted, back pain comes on regularly. Middle of the back to the left of the spine muscles. After reading here all about bar risers I took the plunge and bought the Rox Elite block risers with the up/back configuration. Went for a small solo ride and felt a little in my back, uh oh. Anyway, went for a ride with the wife yesterday and I still feel it today. That burning sensation in my back came on quicker and lasted longer with the risers in place. In fact, I still feel it today, first time I've ever felt it the next day. WTF?, I'm thinking at this point.
I'm 6 ft, 165 lbs with a 32 inch inseam and can't seem to figure out why this should be, with the risers in place. It also behooves me why, with the stock bar position, I don't feel back pain much but after the wife gets on I feel it.
Obviously the risers didn't work and will probably be in the for sale forum soon after only having them on for a couple rides. Question is does anyone else experience back pain after their wife, or someone else, gets on with you? Just weird but it happens.
I still have the stock seat as getting a new one is a much more expensive option to "try out" but I don't necessarily believe that is my back pain problem.
Anyone have the same type of issue in the past with my build? Any other ideas as to what would work (without spending $500-$1000 I don't have)?
Thanks in advance...:beatnik:
