Old Slow Guy in A Fast Car
After a lonk ride my back is killing me!! I don,t want a drivers back rest. Is there a back support belt out there that gives good support ?
Steve, I am not sure why you want to rule out a backrest. I know it is not the most attractive device, but when I rode my bike from PA back to CA I was very happy to have one already installed. They are easy to adjust, move out of the way for the passenger to get on/off the bike, and do not require a permanent modification to install.:thumb:katnapinn said:Bill;
My sore back comes from sitting for long periods of time. I find myself slumping forward after awhile.You know BAD POSTURE! it's a hard habit to break.Was hoping a support of some kind would help
please send me some more info on this product....nplenzick said:We have just finished being a vendor at the BMW MOA rally in Vermont ( more on that in another thread), We carry Back-A-Lines and we sold many this past weekend. I can't tell you how many people came back to our booth and told us how great they worked for them. I've been using one for 2 1/2 years and I can tell you first hand that they work great for me. Used it this past weekend while loading and unloading the trailer and standing for 9 hours at a time in our booth.............you won't be disappointed with one!
You can find all the info you would like at www.backaline.com . It's a nobel gesture of the above poster to give you his, however I do not recomend Back-A-Lines be shared with other people. After the first four hours or so when worn tightly ( as recomended in the instructions) the foam pad forms to "your" back. Once formed it will not reshape to anothers.Roadkingedout said:

Is your windshield in the lowest position? When I have mine up, even just a bit, I get wind pressure on the back of my helmet and then I have to push back against it with the neck muscles.hoodoodrum said:NECK FATIQUE??? Wearing my full face for hours hurts the back of my neck. What to do?
Maybe it's just me, but here are my 0.2 cents: I too had back pain, and pain in the neck; bought a beadrider and a throttle rocker ($35 and $4.50 respectively). The beadrider made my butt comfortable, and pain in the back was gone; the throttle rocker eased tension in my right hand and with this pain in the neck was gone (i know we all have a cruise control...).katnapinn said:After a lonk ride my back is killing me!!

I am not sure which shield you have on your bike... My CeeBailey #2 -2 took the pain out of the neck so I can do that!:yeah:hoodoodrum said:NECK FATIQUE??? Wearing my full face for hours hurts the back of my neck. What to do?
There are several leather shops that make belts for hardtail riders, how stiff do you want it is the question.katnapinn said:After a lonk ride my back is killing me!! I don,t want a drivers back rest. Is there a back support belt out there that gives good support ?
