I don't know if its the way I sit, or something with my bike...but after like a 30minute ride, i suffer from numb nutz ::) Anyone else have the same issue? Is my bike vibrating too much? Or am I just sitting too foward on the bike?

I'm not even sitting on them...but i think I'm pressing them against the gas tank...hmmm....

bobdoyle you need some custom grips...the stock ones doesn't really absorbe the vibrations that well!!!

I did a 15hour day on my SVs last saturday. By the end it felt like my nuts were tangled/twisted and mashed. No adjustments would comfort them. Numb doesn't sound that bad to me.

you are probably sitting too far forward... your balls shouldn't be touching the gas tank... leave about an inch in between.  you may find that your control will improve slightly too..  my boys haven't ever been numb but my hands and butt definitely have.

Nuts on the gas tank? I'll have to try that today for a bit. But I sit as far back as a can with my butt crack pressed hard up on the passenger seat pad.

I bet your BOB doesn't even come close to what your gas tank at 6,000 rpms can do!! ;)

I amiably direct our lady friends to check out http://www.viberider.com if they find their gas tank insufficient. ::)

Ummm....that sounds like a medical condition. :-X


shekshishekki, what happens when you have to get on the brakes hard? That must really do the scrotum in. :-\

PUAHAHAHAHA i saw this a while ago too!!! its funni as hell!!! It even gives you extra "holding" protection lol harder for you to fall backwards off the bike  8) I wanna meet the guy that came up with this lil toy its pretty damn funni. Wonder if anyone on this board has one of them... ::)

Actually braking hard really doesn't effect me too much, i have my theighs wrapped around the tank tighter when i brake so i guess it doesn't go straight into it :p I'm pretty sure its just some weird vibration on my bike...it gets kinda hot in the seat after like 45 min of riding too...wish the seat had ac or sumthing...last thing I want is to get off my bike and look like i pissed my pants just cuz i was sweating like a pig...

Lets hear a little more about that upside ;)

Does the v-twin rumble treat you well.

Sorry about that, I turned into a 12 year old there for a second.
