Just between you me and the outhouse, that's too frickin' long without a break, especially when hitting the turns hard. Not everyone is traversing the Gobi, Sahara, Mohave, or Oklahoma. A gas stop every two or three hours ain't all that bad.
You do know the new liquid cooled GS comes with a built in catheter bag, right?
