I too have a bony ass. This winter I started exercising 5 days a week. My machine of choice is the rowing machine. But when I first started using it, I couldn't go ten minutes on it before it felt like my bony ass was going to cut through my skin. Now, twenty minutes on it is not a problem. I'll be interested to see if it makes a difference in my riding this summer. I have a BMW K75 with the worlds worst saddle. I'll report back in July. Maybe you need some off season training?
