Do you arch your back?
& lie on the tank?

My ride was a bit over 160 miles- we went the long way. OK we got lost but I got off the bike - not a bike renowned for ergos - without any aches, even in wrists. My toes had a few pins and needles but that was cos they were cold and wet. So Matt you need to get a 675.

Matt, unless you've had problems with your back when riding the bike before, I'd be more inclined to blame the camping part of the weekend, especially as it was cold as well. Did you have insulated mats to lie on?

I'd be inclined to agree with Pete......May I suggest investing in an double airbed for you and the missus for your next AR. Invaluable, you never feel like you've slept on a board!!

Oh and inflatable pillows too...I like luxury camping me

Ive had back aches before, maybe its how I sit in the bike? If i grip with my knees, my back hurts, if I put weight on my hands, my shoulders hurt. My levers are nicely adjusted (sorted that a while ago).

I think I'm just a stiff old git at the ripe old age of 22...I didnt feel cold in my tent, no colder than I would be in bed in the middle of the night at home when the windows are open

What if I got one of them thar comfty saddles you have pete?
