    Just wondering what's the furthest you've ridden your TW over the course of a day? Is there a point that the vibration or comfort level just gets too tough for you?

    I rode 120 miles Monday and my hind end was screaming at me the last hour when I was making my way home. The seat is firm which is fine at first, but then bloodflow ceases after a bit. Vibration hasn't been an issue for me even at 60mph sustained. Meanwhile most Honda CB350 bikes will make my butt itch like none other.. Something about the way they vibrate is like a form of torture...



    My bike has Sunline aluminum bars so they might vibrate less than the stock ones, but I'm still running around on knobby trailwing tires.

    About 220 miles and 8 hrs with a 1/2 hour break. A mix of highway and logging roads

    255 is probably my biggest day.



    Check out my brother's ride report titled "2 brothers, 2200 miles". We did a nice loop from Cleveland up thru New England last fall where we averaged about 200 miles a day.

    SEAT CONCEPTS is the answer. The stock seat was a killer. I am in no way affiliated with Seat Concepts other than that I am a VERY satisfied customer.

    Ronnydog and Lizrdbth 1000 miler is just insane milage in a day for a TW.

    That's quite a ride. I'm sure that will be a record here for a long long time.

    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
