How many people here have ridden for more than 8 hrs or so in one day on a sportbike? what kinds of things do you mcgaiver to your bike to make the trip more endurable(ie.extra cushioning). i know some have done this, but to me it definately seems a bit of an unearthly challenge.
Im planning to head up to Smithers in the summer(jun/jul) which is about a 12hr trip(thats 12hrs. of road time plus breaks). the kicker is that the gf wants to do it with me 2up. is this impossible? will we break our backs? any iron butts out there? it prolly wouldnt be the end of the world to make it two days each way, but we would save money and time if we didnt. am i just being a pussy? the longest i've done in the past was about 6 hrs. on my own, but that wasnt really any trouble.
so, go ahead and brag about your crazy trips.
