Could be the bike is too smooth for you, you need to be in a paint shaker off road.
It could be the wind over the windscreen, it does have a lot of turbulance. I am about the same age and height but have 30 lbs more and have never had any pain as you in over 7 years on this model.
You may need bar backs.
One other think, I had noticed when getting on a new ride, you may just be tense from the excitement and that will cause your muscles to tighten up.
