Are there any Sport Touring riders on this thread? A little less than a month ago I purchased a BMW S1000rr. I'm working on building a route/itinerary that encompasses a West coast swing. I'd love to get feedback from others on things to consider while touring with a sportbike.
We've got a couple of R1000SS riders in the Houston BMW club. There are also a few STs and K1300S. Meetings are at 7pm at Spagetti Western on Shepherd the second Thursday of each month. If you're interested in long haul riding, some of our guys go to Alaska via Key West.

SS1000 on a sport bike? One idea is to ride to Boerne and make the run from there to El Paso and back. Just over 1K with 900 miles at an 80 MPH speed limit.
