Rapid Dog's Bar Backs
I just got back from a 3000 mile round trip to the Finger Lakes Rally and MISTER Rapid Dog's Bar Backs made for one VERY comfortable trip. Spent some miles on US 219 in West Virginia (ran into some guys from here and had lunch in Elkins, WVA - HELLO!) and some miles on the Interstates and your bar backs really helped. Thanks again!!

Ditto that.

Last weekend VIR, 469 miles round trip.
Yesterday Road Atlanta, 260 miles round trip.

Could not have done VIR without Bar Backs. Now if he could just do something about my right knee...

I have to agree. I installed a set a month or so ago, and just got back from a trip to the DC area, the increase in comfort (or decrease in pain) was noticeable over other long trips on the S. Now for that peg lowering kit...

Thanks Rapid D.

Hey jduke! I was absolutely amazed to meet a fellow board member on our 3 day trip to Roanoke.

Here's a pic from lunch:

I was _this_ close to selling the S, mostly because of the incredible discomfort from that 1000 mile trip. I'm gonna give Rapid's barbacks a try. There are too many great testimonials for me not to try. Will this help with the pains I get in my neck and lower back? I don't really feel any discomfort in my wrists.

They should relieve the pain in both your neck and lower back. It moves you to a more upright position but not too much in my opinion. You going to the RA National in Tennessee the end of October? You're more than welcome to ride my bike and see how it feels.

I gots to get a set of these! Dan A. ordered a set in Canada, if he liked them I'm sure my arms will welcome the setup!

I don''t hink so Wes, may have gotten trahed by accident. I've been getting ton of SPAM and tr to weed stuff out. Send again and put "Barbacks" in the title. That way I'll see it for sure.
