I noticed that there was an older thread regarding sore neck after riding with a couple of good tips. I rode over 300 miles two weeks ago. First 150 miles slow and through winding roads and several stops along the way. On the return trip, I had plenty of gas and only stopped once for a few minutes to get rid of a few cups of coffee. Then back on the slab to the house. This past Friday about a week after the ride, I developed a muscle spasm or ??? in my upper back on both sides of my spine. So bad, I couldn't get up without help and the Dr. gave me some muscle relaxers and pain meds. Of course, the wife automatically assumed it was from the stupid Harley. I told her no way! She even asked the Dr. if it could have been caused by the bike. Thank god, he was on my side and said that he was sure it wasn't from the bike. Of course he then had to go on and on about the terrible accident victims he has seen after motorcycle accidents. I had to promise him I'd be safe. Anyone else had this upper back pain happen to them after riding?
