You are new, you might be working too hard, as some people here have correctly described and adviced against, but also just because you are new to this, there are "pains" that will go away as soon as your body gets used to it.

Think Yoga, even the smoothest kind can make you feel knackered the first time. You stretch and contract certain muscles that you seldom use, or use in other ways. But then the rest of the sessions can be very relaxing.

Unfortunately you couldn't sire him in any case, Jo. You could dam him if you like.

54 here and had a CBR600 since last June. Ride short 15mi rides every day to work an back about 4600 mi so far, but only a few long rides.

When I first got the bike, my wrists were getting numb/sore; now I'm more relaxed so doesn't happen as much. Never really had problems in the crotch area though, but my hip bones( where they sit on the seat) might get a little sore after a long ride. Usually easy to walk off ofter just a few minutes.

I'm also only bout 165lbs/5'7" so not that heavy.

Still have on my wish list to get a Corbin seat:

Depends on the bike. My knees would only tolerate 150-200 miles at a time on the FZ. On the VFR I can ride (and I have ridden) all day 600-700 miles with little to no interstate traveling and I've had 0 issues. Due to some unforeseen circumstances I cannot report on the R1 that I've owned for 7 months now FML

Having said that, after a break from riding (i.e. winter) my neck would be killing me for a whole week until my muscles get back in shape. That goes away tho - give your body a chance to adapt.

I never found comfortable to ride sport bike for long hours, it kills my back and neck. The best ride I have had in my life is 300 miles on my Harley Davidson XL 1200N Sportster.
