Riding from California to Virginia to visit the grandkids can wear on your body. I've done that ride on my 2005 Deluxe with no backrest but handlebars with more pull back, and it was comfortable. The trick I used on my Deluxe was to hang my heels on my passenger footpegs. It rolls your hips into a forward position which gives your lower back relief. But my second Harley, a 2011 Street Glide with backrest and Flanders handlebars (with a 10 inch pull back) was like sitting in a Lazyboy chair. Really! The suspension on the Street Glide is made for long rides and the wind protection from the fairing allows your whole body to relax. I highly recommend a Street Glide or Road King if you are going across the country. It may take a few modifications—lowered shocks, cut down seat, pull back handlebars—but this little 5 foot 5 inch grandma has had 68,000 miles of amazing adventures on my black beauty!

There's a new product on the market called the PakRest. It's a piece of motorcycle luggage and an adjustable backrest in one. It has a very large backrest pad and provides support for your back. You can lean back into the backrest pad to take the pressure off your private parts. Unlike a custom seat it is easily transferable to any bike you ride. Plus you can customize it with all kinds of pockets and pouches. I love mine and I have a friend who has a lot of back issues and it really helps him, too.

I am definitely trying the corset. I too, get back pain and groin pain. Thanks to all the ladies for sharing!

I’ve had all kind of bikes and they all seem to affect my body in different ways. Sportbikes affect my wrists and thighs, cruisers affect my arms and back. The important thing is the correct fit of the bike you choose. Harley has the most customized fit and the Sportster even though top-heavy is a good fit for me and so is the Fat Boy. I had pullback bar risers, easy clutch, and a lower seat fitted for the correct fit for me on both bikes.
