Spades,
Sympathy and motorcycle prayers.
I'm a nurse so consider the source of this.
I hate back pain, it's a set up for disaster.
It is usually treated incorrectly.

So an old motorcyclist's advice.
Muscle relaxers X 5-7 days(Valium or Flexeril(your doctor will resist this idea unless he is experienced)), also concurrent with the muscle relaxers, Aleve(double dose X 2 days, then a regular dose for a week every 4-6 hours. Walk a block after one week extending the distance until you can walk 3 miles.

No narcotics.
Walk!

How do I know?
I treated many pain sufferers.
I have a broken and healed back and a blown R. knee.
I could only walk one block 5 years ago. My back was fragile. I had broke my pelvis riding in Bolivia and also got hit by a Lexus on the Mex border, Lymes Disease hit me hard in the midst of all that.

Once the pain is gone either hit the gym or do stretching exercises in your home.
START SLOWLY.

I skiid 34 miles in the Bierkiebiner race a couple of weeks ago.
I am 67 years old.

Fix that motorcycle, pain is a complex issue.
The expression of physical pain does not always identify the underlying problem.

Your mindbody is about a complex as your KTM.
It may resist.
