Touring on a sportsbike?

Wish I had more chance to do it before I sold off my TLR.

Don't want to slip another disc, Abang Aie... have to have plenty of stops on the way to sample the local fare of each state :cheeky:

My longest ride was to KL with my RVF.....

With 3 of my friends... It's fun..planning to go some where farther...

So coincidental. So was mine on my GSX R400N in 1993, the same week I passed and got my bike. 4 bikes went to Genting Highlands. Mine, 2 Suzuki Bandits and one Suzuki Katana. On the way down the mountain, my bike buang cos of slippery road due to rain. One of my Bandit friend wanted to help but in the end, his bike was towed back to Singapore while the rest rode back. He parked his bike on gravel that gave way and his Bandit dropped. So chun chun the engine cover hit a rock and a portion broke off. My bike looked worst off than his but still could be ridden. I felt bad cos he had to ride the tow lorry back so helped to pay part of the cost for him... :sweat:

Nah it's not that bad. Got a couple of mates who were on their Ps, and they rode on a CBR250 RR and a ZZR 250 from Sydney to Brisbane, aound 1000 km.

 

Took them 2 days of hard riding (because they're riding small bikes and couldn't go more than 130km/h or the engine would have popped).

 

but it was all right.

 

i know of people riding bikes big and small from Townsville to Philip Island (over 3000 km) to go for MOtoGP . :cheer:

 

It's not that hard once you get used to it.

However in the long run, it does contribute to a slipped disc if your spine is already wearing out... :cry:
