1st Triumph - a 1050 Tiger

Hi all,

I just picked up my 1st Triumph motorcycle - a 1050 Tiger ABS. She's a beaut and a real shock to me when I twist the throttle.

The only problem I'm having is I'm getting a pain between my shoulder blades when riding. I'm 6' 0", 34" length. I have not ridden a sport bike before but have owned and ridden plenty of other bikes. I've concentrated on keeping my hands lightly on the handlebars and in a natural posture - no good

Any ideas what I should try?

Appreciate any ideas.
