Sore Arse !

Discussion in 'New Riders and Riding Tips' started by Blue Twin, Jul 1, 2004.

  1. After about 120 km's or so, I can barely sit on my seat 'cause my arse is so sore. Is this something you get used to or is there something to help ? Do sheepskin covers help at all ?

  2. Dont know about sheepskin , never used it . U will eventually get use to it ,the longer u ride the more distance u will get before it starts to numb up but u will still feel it . Just that u wont feel it for longer (if that makes sense) . I could normally do about 200 kays on my ninjaZX9 before my butt hurt . Hopefully with the new bike i will last longer .The pain i cant seem to get rid of is the partner hitting me on the head .
  3. My folks went round Tassie on the bike (two-up), and the sheepskin is what saved their butt's. Go the sheepskin, it makes a huge difference.
    It might take you a couple of rides to get used to it though. :)
  4. Thanks. I'll suss' one out. I think I saw a post on someone who does custom jobs.

  6. 200ks? Wow, my butt gets sore after 50ks or so, then I have to wiggle it or stand up.
  7. I must have a big , cushier butt. :D
  8. i inserted some layers of wet sit material in to my seat and it has helped heaps , but the unfortunate thing is that most 250 have crappy seats compared to the bigger bikes
  9. I plan on making a whole new back end from carbon fibre or fibre glass with a single seat. Then I will suss out some different materials to use for padding.
  10. Stand up, sit forward, sit back but move around a bit on the seat helps the circulation. I can relate to this being on the Across..
  11. Bought my Across with a sheepskin on it already. I looked and thought "Man, looks pretty girly, first thing that's going is that" I then rode it home 30 minutes, and it's still on there today. It's not going anywhere. :LOL:
  12. More time on the bike fixes all probs 8)
  13. Get a ZZR :p
  14. NOOOOOOOOOOO , buy a HONDA :p
  15. yes we know minna, why do you think we like to be behind you on a ride :LOL: :LOL: :LOL:
  16. It took me a while to get my posture right but now I have & my butt feels more comfy & I feel more confident in my riding!
  17. Gee, you're making me self conscious. :oops: Everytime I'm about to go out on a rider, I'll be asking myself, will my butt look big? or maybe small? Does it go well with leather? And does black suit me? Or should I get something with slimming lines? :LOL:

    And here I thought you guys were behind me looking out for my safety when all you were doing was looking at my butt. Muhaha, I'm flattered.
  18. Damn you Sluglie! I used to look forward to the 50k stand and wiggle.
    then again now she knows we all admire her butt so much, she might wiggle it more often for us!

    :LOL: :LOL: :twisted: :LOL:
  19. O.K, my longest ride so far has been from Pakenham, Bairnsdale to Bright via Hotham in one day and I can't remember ever having a sore butt.

    WoW..My bike must be comfy as :)
  20. I just did Canberra to Sydney and back on my ZZR and god it was paaaaaaainful. It put me off riding my bike for 1 whole day!!!

    Maybe I need to stop exercising and put some fat onto my ass... :p
