What Qualifies As A "Long Ride?"
For ME, at least at this stage of my riding time, a "long ride" is a 500 mile one way trip, is a ten hour day in a cage, or 1500 miles from CT to South Florida.
On a motorcycle, the most I've done in the saddle is a four-hour ride "one way."
I rack up miles daily, in a normal work week, but that's not "touring" of course.
I would imagine that, with the increased comfort of trips with the Ultra Classic, with a back rest, cruise control and so forth, that I will take longer rides now.
That said, I'd be curious to know how fatigue is experienced on a bike, over long distances? Is it different than fatigue in a cage, on a long trip?
