Iím hoping someone may be able to help resolve an unusual problem. Back in my younger days I had surgery to stop my left shoulder dis-locating, and as a result the alignment of my left arm is slightly different to the right arm. The surgery was 30 years ago, and itís only in the past year or so this has become a problem. Unfortunately, the activity that causes most grief is long rides on my 2014 GS!
The right arm is perfectly comfortable all day, but the left arm is a different story - it wants a different position, with the outside of the hand pointing more toward the ground. As it is, pressure builds on the thumb, wrist, and elbow, and the problem is getting worse.
So far Iíve tried swivelling the handlebars to a different position but this hasnít helped.
Iím wondering whether after market bars might help, but havenít found any available. Or should I try getting the standard handlebar bent, to have the left hand drop toward the ground. Is this possible and how would I go about getting the bar bent?
Any thoughts or suggestions most welcome!
Thanks in advance, Robin
