back pain

I am not a bot and I resent the inference that I am.

Maybe you hunch when on the bike which made you compress the nerve?

I remember Hylife had a seat custom made due to back issues. Ask him about it.

I'm not sure how relevant it would be, but i do know that you can get sissy bars(backrest) fitted on the front seat of cruisers. So at least your back could rest against it. Dunno if it would help, but i imagine it would provide some more support like sitting in a chair rather than on a stool.

Maybe it's time to stop riding a bike and take up something less strenuous.
Just saying.
If it's too hot, get out.
Don't know about you guys but when you are blasting around the twisties it's hard going after an hour or two and YES we have roads that long in Australia.

Bob,  I don't know the 250 too well, but it looks quite small, so maybe the riding position isn't suiting you and as you suspect is putting too much load on your tail bone.  That plus maybe slightly cramped legs in a feet forward position.....?  Hopefully changing the bars will help.

I wanted a more relaxed riding position, but went the 'adventure bike' route with a Honda CB500X - it's a bit smaller and lighter than my GT650, has the upright sitting position and screen I was looking for, but because it's a taller bike, the position is roomy and the leg position still has your legs angled comfortably backwards.  Maybe take a look at this type of bike, if you can't get sorted on the GV??

Unfortunately, Hyosung don't do an adventure bike...... :-\
