Hmmmppphh, me, too on the K1200GT. Right shoulder, way up high where it meets my neck. Makes it hard to take the helmet off after awhile. Sometimes, I've got tears streaming down my face (I'm a girl, I can do that ;-p) as the muscles burn while removing my helmet.GMack said:Fwiw, sometimes I get a really bad right neck and shoulder cramp if I don't get off the thing and do a Walk-About to relax and stretch the sore muscles out a bit. Might be helmet buffeting or the sheer weight of it. Dunno why, but riding more than an hour without doing some sort of stretching or something always leads to a cramp someplace.
Nope nope ... you are in good company. Was not nearly so bad until the 5 day stint I just did, it has never gone away. Need to sort it out because the bike stays ... so the shoulder better shape up or it goes bye bye. :teethpawprint2104 said:Thought it was just me.
