Need some help, shoulder been getting worse over the last year building up to the point were now every time i get on the bike it is agony, and the other one has started to go to.
I take a break from the bike for a couple days then get back on and its instantly returning now.
Pretty sure it is an erganomics problem, my feet barely touch the ground and I do have to reach for the handlebars, that being said I do try and relax and reduce the pressure as much as possible… so whats the solution
- stop riding - no way im going on public transport
- get a new bike - i like my current bike besides the only other thing i’d fit on is a harley
- ‘fix’ my current bike
is it possible to get different handlebars? is it difficult? while they are at it is it possible to get it lowered? how much alteration is possible and just how much more is the insurance company going to charge me for it and then how impossible to sell would it be if i wanted to? and how much would it cost to do this, and would it help?
Or should I just throw in the towel and get the Harley? I am 5ft nothing, with 26 inch inner leg I have looked and looked and looked for a motorcycle that fits, isnt pretencious, isnt too heavy, is a good commuter that can also put on the miles and I came up with the F700 GS Ralley LS … it has a 760mm seat height which is about 20mm too many it is already lowered and has the wooden plank seat, I can not find anything else, I am not comfortable on racers, I don;t mind cruisers but I adore my adventure bike.
I really could use an answer other than Honda MSX… unless somebody has one with a 800cc engine…
