Any advice and/or recomendations is appreciated. This will be my first very long distance ride.

I drove mine 1100 miles straight from the show room floor to my garage last year. Did it in 2.5 days as I had never had a single cylinder before and was unprepared for the vibration at speeds over 70. ( Now I know them to be "normal")

I'd never consider a ride that far again unless I had a high seat and lower/wider foot pegs and maybe some highway pegs just as an occasional way to stretch the legs. I'm 6' tall and I consider it a cramped fit for me in stock arrangement.

Hell, I just hit 1800 miles today with a hundred mile run and I'm pretty much over the hype of it and will probably sell it in a few months.
