Actually, flapping the arms / elbows was a great exercise for me. It forced me to keep a light grip on the bars. After two weeks, the tingling went away.
For my long rides, I use the cruise control often, and rest my right arm behind me, on the seat. That seems to help bunches. I also do windmills and shoulder circles with the right arm.
I still get the occasional soreness in the right shoulder and sometimes in the elbow on the long rides. I attribute most of the shoulder soreness to reconstructive surgery I had 12 years ago. I keep ibuprofen in the tank bang for those times.
Of course, YMMV, but I've been able to complete two 1,000+ mile days on the bike with stock pegs, bars, throttle spring setting, and seat. I raised the pegs last week and will be doing an 850 mile day this Thursday on my way to Paonia to see how this works.
Hope this helps.
