As mentioned above riders back rest and the correct bars for you are a huge.
The single biggest thing that helped my neck and back while riding was bars at the right height and wrist position.
I have a fused spine at L3, L4 and L5. I can make if for 2-3 hours and am fine without a back rest. Any longer than that or if we go for a week long ride then the back rest is on. I am running a Roadglide seat on an Electra Glide Classic.
If I take the Softail out I wear a lower back brace and keep the rides short
