Longest ride so far; 250 miles, 6 hours

Did a 250 mile day and man I was feeling it!

Maybe if I could ride in ass-less chaps it would have been fine but the stock seat leaves much to be desired. The bar position is great though, back and wrists are fun (unlike long CBR journeys where my back takes a beating)

Overall comfort is a bit worse than the 650R, but much better than a supersport. Might rig up some removable highway pegs before planning any long journeys.

Great pics Mike! Those are my old stomping grounds. I have been to all of those places in my youth. Brought back some good memories!

Hmmm..how big are you?

I am 6' 210lbs but not much bodyfat, 32-34" inseam depending on the fit. My core is strong enough that my back never hurts regardless of ride position and how long I am on the bike (it did before I started lifting seriously). My big problems are the hard seat and really cramped legs. I might get the seat re-done with another 2" of padding to make it more comfortable AND stretch my legs out a little.
