I've read that this thing is causing people's backs and/or tailbones hurt after riding the Freewheeler.

I have back issues and pain as is that I have to take pain pills. I can't deal with a jolt or a rough ride.

I'm asking you Freewheeler riders: Is the Freewheeler not good for someone with a bad back?

Just rode one from Florida to New Orleans two weeks ago to help a friend...
No problems. Probably better than on 2 wheels.
My bike is a 2000 Ultra and I love that too. Wouldn't trade ..... For now at least.

Thanks for the reply!

It looks like I'll be fine. I have an air cushion I'm going to use. And with the airshocks, I should be able to soften up the ride a little.

HoppR, the ride is smooth and steady. Try one of those gel pads, they work awesome!

I found that the air hawk with a small amount air is a great big difference in how my back feels after a 250 mile or more ride. I road 16000 miles this year always using the air hawk with no back pain.
