    Michigan to the Pacific Northwest and Back

    Here's a summary of my late-summer sojourn out west, including links to individual (mostly daily) reports. I even have a video of me performing a 12K K1600GTL service in a Nebraska parking lot. Oh, and I caught the solar eclipse in Oregon. It was a good trip.

    Wow. You averaged 471 miles per day? Those are some really long riding days? Over nine hours in the seat?

    500-mile days on a GTL aren't that hard, especially if you're on the slab. I just looked at my records of the travel times for this trip (I get that from the GPS tracks for each day) and most days were between seven and nine hours. A few days were over ten hours, mostly days on nicer mountainous two-lane roads where the pace is slower and I'm stopping more often for photos.

    I'm still using the stock seat and it's not that bad. I do feel like I'm getting some nerve irritation on the inside of the legs toward the end of long days, but my ass doesn't get very sore.
