    Great maiden voyage. Consider trying a pair of padded bicycle shorts for comfort and circulation.

    Re: First road trip

    Hey, I just got home from my longest trip ever, too.

    Agree my biggest problem is seat comfort on long stretches. I've got an Airhawk pad that I throw on for long (non-sporty) highway stretches, which helps a lot. Then limiting is just getting cramped knees, sore back and exhausted.

    1300 miles or so in 3 days. I think 400/day is maintainable for me, but I did 600 on the 2nd day and that pretty much ruined me.

    Any day over 400 is a good day. Stand up once in a while, stop and stretch you legs and stay hydrated helps a lot.

    OR

    Buy a Goldwing and 600 mile days are cake.


    Burning fossil fuel and loving it!!
