I experienced the same numbness in the first week or so. Usually worse on the long freeway stretches where your throttle arm tends to stay in the one position for extended periods.

I think Boonty is right, it may just be a matter of adjusting your style a bit.

I found I was putting to much weight on my arms, and possibly gripping too tight. I'm an old dirt bike rider, so holding on tight was a habit.

I found that if I adopted a more relaxed position letting some of my weight lean on the tank, let my shoulders drop and pulled my elbows in a bit. That it was greatly reduced...or I just got use to it....:)

Once you get on the road, just relax your grip a bit. The bike is quite stable, and unless the road surface is not too rough, you should still be able to steer, throttle & clutch without gripping tight. Of course you are watching the road ahead and preparing to hold on during braking etc...:eek:

Give it a try let me know.
