My back hurts...

Since I have started riding again, I have noticed that my muscles in the middle of my back are very sore. I have looked as best as I can at my posture. I try not to grip the bars tightly and try not to stiffen my arms when stopping. I periodically flap my arms like a chicken to make sure I am loose up top. (looks silly but it does work) I also do stretch my back in the mornings now and at night.

I am wondering if this is something that will go away as my back muscles become more accustomed to riding, or is there something I need to be doing, or not doing?

I am a bit of a desk jockey during the day. I spend a lot of my time in chairs and very little standing. I am sure this is not helping me much either.

Tell me some of your experiences and what you have done to overcome this.

If you've tried everything posture wise, you may need to consider seeing a chiropractor. Could just need a simple readjustment. Just a thought.

I don't know if I have tried everything posture wise or not. I have tried the things I have heard about and they seem to help a little. I am reluctant to think it is any kind of subluxation as the pain is more like that of a muscle that is way over worked.

2 things...

1. Ab work, very much affects your core and stablility, less effort on back
2. Yoga...no joke, helps loosen up everything...

I had lots of back issues and between ab work and yoga, never had an issue again.

riding a sportbike requires muscles. not trying to be an or anything, but the more you ride the stronger your muscles will get and the easier it will be. remember to stretch too.

I am completely willing to accept this. Heck it is actually my best theory thus far. I will work the abs out more and ride till I can't feel feeling anymore.

I agree with the posts above on working out. Abs and back will help out. Maybe even the seat can contribute to the pain, if you are on long rides.
