    Pain while riding, or "I'm getting old"

    Interesting you say that. I stand and move up and down quite often on a longer ride. Also when I know I am going to attack a major group of twistys, I stand up and down a few times to shake off any stiffness and to get my brain and focus up to 10/10ths to remind myself any effe ups are not acceptable. My roots are from motocross so standing on any bike is no big deal...

    Pain while riding, or "I'm getting old"

    Agree to take your fav pain killer before a longer ride. Also with a new bike, the ergos a slightly different than your other rides, so you are awakening muscles that you didnt know you had. Then same kinda deal... every year early in the season we are out of "riding shape" and by the end of the season, that stuff doesnt bother as much. (Every year early in the season, my shoulders screen - " Here I am!") -- - Another tip - try a throttle rocker.. that helps big or right hand/wrist/arm fatigue. -- Also agree with ricer -- playing with seats/bars/windscreens -- ergos can have a positive help too. -- Good luck... (Gawd, what I wouldnt give to be 39 again...) I laugh at plenty of my VFR guys when they whine about "oh the ergos are so low!" - Jeez, I put on the lower stock bars and it seems to fit me better, and I'm prolly a tic or two older.

    Lets discuss oil filters...

    Running Bosch or Purolator... at about $6 or I can pay more than double for the Honda OEM filter... (Made by Honeywell or Fram)
