Very nice!!

After 350 miles, I would be ready to park mine and walk home.

I think 450 miles is the most I've ever done on mine in a single sitting. She ain't comfy but I've always deemed the fun was more than worth it. I've gotten to really like the riding position and feel awkward on other bikes still. I rode the newer R1's and instantly fell in love because the riding position felt very similar to the RC with a more comfortable seat.

Lets get the logistics hammered out here and we can make a thread about it.

For me it will have to be on a sat or sunday morning. I've been working a ton of hours lately and sunday has been my only day off but that may change soon. So lets here it. This ride should be ton fun.

Sat morning is best for me but next sat is out cause I'll be working my supple buttocks off while out of town for a week.....
