I am asking for any advise I can get to keep me from moving on to another brand. I got my 2005 F4 in March of this year and absolutely love it. The sound of the exhaust, the power is well, addicting, the artistry of the lines of the bike is amazing and the ooo'in and awwe'in I get when I ride is exhilarating but the body pain during and after a day's ride is just overwhelming. I am in fairly good shape as the military made sure of that and I exercise almost daily but after getting off the bike, my wrists are extremely sore and my knees and shoulders are just as sore. I tried different riding positions and stretching throughout the ride but it doesn't help. At the end of my last ride I had to pull the clutch in using my whole hand because my wrist was so sore. Don't want to move to another brand but I also want to be able to enjoy the ride and feel fairly good afterwards. Thanks!!
