First long ride (Long for me at least)

Hey everyone, just wanted to say, it's a nice feeling riding your motorcycle on the highway.. A friend of mine and I met up after school and headed to Cochrane (About 50 minutes away from where I live).. I just have a question for you guys/gals though.. is it normal for your back to hurt after riding for an hour on the highway? I was resting above the gas tank, but my back still hurt like crazy after that ride! Anybody have any suggestions?

If that is the longest you have ridden, maybe you need to get use to the position and build your endurance. Maybe try tucking ad resting the elbows on the knee area, that seems to be comfortable for me on long rides4-10hrs. Also be sure you are not putting to much weight on the hands and wrists, use the legs to hold you up.
