How to make the ride softer?

I have some physical disbillity issues and took a ride this last weekend that put me at whits end. I had to have a friend ride back to camp for me. The rocky road tore me up! I'm trying to see if there is a way to make the ride softer/better for rocky trails without selling. Any ideas that wont break the bank?

Thank you,

Maverick

Better suspension. I have ridden on elkas and fox floats, unreal how good they felt. They were on a 450r.

I have had six reconstructive knee surgeries and need total knee replacements in both legs, but my Dr's say the longer I can hang on the better. They say I'm too young for replacements(36 years old). Also have many other issues with my back, arms and hands. Numbness lately is creating issues now. All this related to my military service.

Shocks and you might look into the Houser pro bounce nerfs, maybe a desert seat.
