But i was just wonder... for forest rides, and country side rides and just enjoying the road with my wife - should i just give up and get a cruiser...

All my life i have been fascinated by sport bikes... and i still want one... but I know i will enjoy the road/ride more with my wife on a cruiser than on a sports bike....

*sigh*

Have the best of both worlds, get yourself BOTH.

I have decided - that I am not ready to give up on my passion for sports bikes just yet... lol..... Going to the gym and will be exercising a bit more ... and will try to strengthen my back/stomach....

I will end up buying an r6 or a gsxr 600 if I get one for the right price... but will wait on riding till i feel like i can go 100 - 200 miles without any issues....

Thank you all for your input... It all helps.

I used to work out a lot so I think that is the defining reason why my back does not get sore. I recommend working out on your abs with weights and doing "ab holds" while brushing your teeth in the morning. Also, work on hyper extensions to strengthen your lower back. You'll thank yourself on many occasions because the "core" is very important for a lot of things.
Its more than likely your back doesn't hurt because your'e doing it wrong. I point at the fact that your wrists and fingers are getting sore as proof of this. I bet your upper back gets a little tight too.

I don't know if anyone has suggested it...but have you looked at the Yamaha Warrior? I'm a LONG time Harley rider (yes...I just admitted it), but for a while I did have a Yamaha Warrior. Let me tell you...those cruisers ain't no punk!! They will flat out HAUL !! But keep you in a riding position that would be better for a weak back/stomach.

Here's one...not mine, but a great example of one. Prices are pretty cheap for them used too.

I honestly don't know if my back is too tight but it feels loose to me. My wrists have been getting a lot better especially the clutch wrist.

I find that my fingers get sore because of the clutch work. The joints of my middle and ring finger feel like it's inflamed. I'm not sure if having small hands is a part of the problem.

Is there anything you can recommend to me so my wrists and fingers don't get sore?

Don't forget that you have feet. Try putting a little more weight on the pegs and use your thighs and knees to grip the seat and tank so that your lower back can pick you up a little.

Stop holding your torso up off the bike with them
