I had a similar experience on the K&P rail trail in Ontario last year. I brought the KLR, which is not blessed with the world's most refined suspension. Everything was just fine as long as I remained standing, but that gets tiring after the fifth hour or so.

The DRZ is a bit more suited to the task.
