Question: I ride with 2 friends often. One on a Honda Shadow and another on a Honda something (he keeps telling me and I keep forgetting — it's a fast street bike. I know because he's left me in the dust at 75mph.) Anyway, they have plenty of power and comfort to get them through a full day of riding but I find that, while I more than keep up (as in 5 over the speed limit) and hold my own on the 250, I'm really only good for 150 miles r/t for a day ride. I get really tired after that.
My buds, however, keep ragging me to ride longer and I can't seem to convince them of the fatigue factor. I feel every bump and vibration. Mind you . . . I don't guilt easily, if at all, so I just smile and stick to my story but I was wondering if anyone else has come to this conclusion.
