Sitting Up Straight Will Get You A Better Ride

bad-postureHave you ever been at a rally and taken a good look around? Most of the folks aren’t exactly the most stand-up group… literally.

What I mean is that your motorcycling brethren are usually slouchers.

And it’s not just bikers. Most of us have poor posture, too.

Here’s why:

Simply resting back on your gluts (your butt) can wreak havoc on your spine. I can’t tell you how many people I ride with have complaints about lower back pain, neck and shoulder pain, numb hands, etc.

I’m not saying motorcycling is totally responsible for back pain… but it sure doesn’t help.

And with over 50 percent of the population suffering some sort of back problems, odds are you know exactly what I mean.

Unfortunately a big chunk of our day is spent in a chair. Think about it: You sit in a car (or on a bike) going to work; then you sit all day at work. You clock out and then end up at home on the couch.

Now factor in the time spent in your super low-drop-seat, ape-hangered, forward-controlled, suicide-shifted, foot-clutched bike to the equation, and POW… you got back pain. Back pain equals neck pain. Neck pain can equal numb fingers… it’s all connected.

Not everyone has the crazy seat positions I mentioned.

But almost everyone I see riding is slouching or round-backed and forward-shouldered… no matter what they’re riding.  It’s true even on the most basic stock bike setup.

What is needed is balance. While these riding positions feel comfortable at the time, believe me, you’ll pay for it later. I ride rigid myself, and my friends always give me grief about sitting upright. But guess what? At fuel stops (especially on long rides), I stretch out, do some exercise moves and still feel great six hours later. And my buddies? They were moaning, ‘My back, my aching back,’ on their softails.

Too bad they didn’t follow my lead instead of hassling me.

Anyway, most cruiser riders should make a conscious effort to sit up straight, pull their shoulders and head back, and perform corrective exercises and stretches regularly.

Heck, I’d never ask people to give up their rigids, stretched customs or 2-foot ape-hanger bikes. After all, it is all about the look-right?

And if you ride a sport bike, you’ll probably need extra neck stretches as well as weight exercises to feel right. You can’t do much repositioning on a sport bike, as you’re usually ‘locked in’ when riding.

Here’s the goal:

Get you into riding more comfortably and in a healthier way.

Sometimes just by changing a bad habit or two and a few simple exercises can help relieve low back pain and neck and shoulder pain.

Actually, these little moves will improve not just your motorcycle riding life, but your everyday life, too.

Try it. All you have to lose is your back pain.

Back pain and motorcycling shouldn’t go together, but they do. Keeping your back straight while riding, enduring the bumps and tolerating the vibrations can cause all kinds of pain. Also, all motorcycle riders end up complaining about middle back pain or neck and shoulder pain.

However, the root cause of nagging pain can often be caused by muscle and spinal strain.

Motorcycling with back pain at the same time can lead to even worse problems. this is because pain is how your body tells you that something is wrong.

Motorcycle riders are often desperate to get rid of the pain problems; many will go to any length just so they can keep riding.

Once riders begin to complain about pain… motorcycling becomes a BIG problem. The typical solution (big pharma says) is to take care of the pain with prescription medication or pain killers.

The truth is that there are many other solutions besides medication and surgery. And many of these surefire solutions include ways that are even 100% natural!
