!998 PC 800 Crack Tail Light
Written by bdpickett on 5/20/2010 at 05:05 pm

I tried a Utopia backrest many years ago and did not care for it. For one thing,
it made it more difficult to swing a leg over the seat, and secondly, I found
that I tended to slump my back into the pad rather than sitting up straight;
poor posture when riding causes a burning pain through my upper back and
shoulders.

I sometimes have lower back spasms that can last for weeks, and which make even
walking a painful chore. My lower back pains are alleviated by following the
exercises listed in "The Bad Back Book" by Jerry Wayne ($13 @
http://www.amazon.com/Bad-Back-Book-Jerry-Wayne/dp/0918024250/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8\
&s=books&qid=1274374301&sr=8-1
), however, when I lapse in doing the exercises
and the spasms return, I resort to wearing a "Back-A-Line" support full-time (
http://www.back-a-line.com/ ), and this greatly reduces the pain so that I can
walk without discomfort. Like Mac, I also wear the Back-A-Line when riding
long-distance, even when I have no back spasms, and it helps me to sit
straighter, thus preventing both the lower back spasms and the upper back
burning.

I recommend both the Back-A-Line and "The Bad Back Book".

    I would check on ebay. Lately there have been several PC800's being parted out. You could get a used part for probably not a lot. Robert --- In

    If you see one on ebay, get it QUICK! I have been trolling ebay several times a week since I got my somewhat rumpled PC last summer. I lucked in to a reasonable deal a few weeks ago, but before that, the only tail lights I had seen we

        I cannot comment on the back rest, but I have a "Back-A-Line" support that I wear on longer rides and it seems to help a lot.? It makes me sit up straighter and supports my back very well.? I purchased it from Whitehorse Gear on sale,

          Hey Y'all, I have a Utopia backrest. I installed it per the instructions. I can't really tell if I like it or not. I think if I could get it a little lower to support my lower back I would be happier with it. I also think that I need to bars

            I got mine because I needed a new front seat so I checked ebay and found a front and back seat with the backrest already installed; everything looked new. It took some adjusting but I got the backrest to work for me. As for getting my leg ove
