No way around it, the 6K+ trip described previously would no doubt be uncomfortable as . but look at it as more of an achievement. A marathon of sorts.

Thatís the reason I'm interested. Go big or go home right?

Just to clear it up I'm going to officialy say I'm sitting these out.

I'm going to start planning another trip around the same 6k route listed earlier . I feel a ride like that is going to need more planning and prep work than I can put forth in the time given.

I already know you're a real dumbass:
http://www.motohouston.com/forums/sh...ad.php?t=95648

But you don't really believe you can make it to California in 19 hours on a bike do you? Buwahahahahahaha
Are you an Iron champion? I bet you couldn't make it out of Texas in 19 hours.

I have done it too. I'm not saying it's impossible. I'm saying it is unlikely that a noob, with barely 1 year riding experience, could do it.

guys if you haven't *really* ridden any sort of long range rides (6hr and up) please make sure you are prepared. Do A LOT of homework before you take on such journeys.

bring all sort of liquids, bring spare key, practice using the flat kit, take gas stop and food stop separately (stop = rest, so best to rest a lot), eat at hours where people don't normally eat so you can avoid the crows and be on your way quick... there are A LOT of things that you can do to make your trip a safe and enjoyable one. On such long trip many things can go wrong and it's best you are prepared than have to walk a few miles in the desert for help..... and a whole lot more things you can prepare for.

Good luck!

Anyone making that kind of a ride on a sports bike is a fool in my opinion. These things aren't made for cross country riding. You'll be one sore once you get there.

You'll get a lot more regular mileage out of your tires during everyday riding than you will on a long distance highway trip. Yeah, you might stretch 5K out of a set riding around town but doing a 1000 miles on the highway at 80+ mph will wear a flat spot really fast.

Wow..it'll be one of a trip.

Just curious though...
say like you ride all day then check into a motel/hotel or the night. So you'd park your bike in the parking lot downstair or whereever in a town you know nothing about. Wake up the next day and the bike is gone, you're 1000 miles away from home...This got to be the worse.
How do you guard the bike while you're sleeping in a hotel?
