I know alot of people have complained about this ride being a head banger but when Jeff(our beloved webmaster) first visited SFGAm last June, he rode Iron Wolf for the first time and thought it was a great ride. He also has stated he used a method which puts you in the most comfortable position to ride. As quoted by him on GTTP:
"We've found that actually leaning forward in to the harness, feet all the way back, is most comfortable."
Well, I plan on trying that method when I visit SFGAm this year and hopefully the headbanging will be eliminated because the other elements of the ride are incredible. If you havent tried this way yet, then give it a shot.

Seems like a good idea

I tried that yesterday and today my neck feels like I need a whiplash collar...That was my 1 ride on IW for the season.
For the past five years, I ride IW on my first trip (because it is a great track) and keep hoping that they will "fix" the looseness of how the train grips the track. Unfortunately, they never do...It makes my sig. all the more relevant... ;)

That also works on Mantus, and I assume other stand ups. That is, excluding TOGO stand ups, those are just hopeless. Jeff mentioned this a while ago, and it works like a charm. It still hurts, but not nearly as bad if you put your feet out in front of you.
