You need to keep your back straight. When you hunch over you can through out your shoulder. I've ordered a back support from utopia because I have the same problem.

I doughty you will do this but if you do no more pain.

Put 5 pound weights or what ever you have any thing that has some weight to it really any thing in your hands, and let them hang at your side. Now lift or raise your shoulders to wards your ears. Yes you never really touch your ears.
Now do ten of theses two times a day and with in a week your pain will be gone.
Do it for a month and never have pain again

Oh but I hate exercises lol. I give that a try, but I do hunch forward when I ride. I was thinking getting different bars. But come to think of it my last bike I had a back rest, I dont remember having this pain on that bike.

So exercise and perhaps a new seat or a back rest for my stock seat.

Found a back rest that might work with my seat set up. Bars I would like apes but I think that might defeat the purpose lol. Wonder how beach bars would look on the pin, or maybe the star bar

lol yes sir. I stopped using the armrest in my rig so much and have been doing shrugs while driving. I readjusted my bars back to where they were when i got the bike. Feels a tad better, but I will be getting a back rest soon i think. need to find a cheap one


Or if I get some sales at my photography site, I might be able to afford a better one sooner
