I personally think your endurance builds up the more that you do those longer rides. I used to ride to and from Austin every weekend, 160 miles each way. Takes a few times to get used to.
Are you trying to hurt somebody? I use to use that in the military a few years ago and then tried it the other day. Right before I was out the door, I had a terrible burning sensation in the "nether regions"! Needless to say I had to wash up and resort to my toddler's remedy. BABY POWDER.
Plus the girls love the smell!

I want to go on another road trip! But I'll play this game because I can actually contribute.

It was 5k miles in 10 days, w 2 of those sittin on my in Logan, UT. I think the farthest I have done in one sitting is Dumas, TX to Houston. Ninja650r pwnage, ha!

Farthest on my 250 is Dallas and back on the same day which was absolutely no fun.

But alas, good luck man! Weather is much better!

Well I did a lot better this trip than the previous. I think its a lot to do with the Wed M&G's Any way I left around 10p and arrived 1a. I stopped off at Flatonia for a quick 10 minute break, and again in Seguin to fill up. Met a super dooper nice trooper just before Bucky's (though I drive there every other weekend so I should have known he was there) Was doing 90 in a 65(night speed) TGFTB (Thank for the Badge). So technically I had another 5 minute break as we shot the breeze. He followed me on to the highway blocking behind. Real nice guy, so be nice to him if you meet him The weather was great nice and cool. There must have been some bike event this weekend cause saw tons of Harleys on the way back. All in all I'm glad I took the chance on the weather and just listening to the bike, the wind, was more fun than any IPod

Fun Fact: my bike will go 170 miles at 90 mph before the low fuel light comes on.
Fun Fact: the on ramp going I-10 East in Sealy is AWESOME!!!!! (long right turn)

I rode to Oak Hill and back yesterday which was 351 miles. My lower back was a little sore but overall it wasnt too bad. The 954 is not too comfortable for me nowadays.
