I can only assume that you are wearing a waist harness. I've never had that unpleasant experience wearing a seat harness (fusion). I am, however, starting to get some weird peeling skin on my palms from riding. I've been at this for 2 1/2 years and all of a sudden, now I get these weird blisters? I can hear the jokes now, but has anyone else gone through this. Doesn't hurt, but it sure weirds out the wife!
