    I did a SS 1000 8 yrs ago, to see if I could. I didn't submit anything for documentation though. It was cool to do it, but as others have said, it was not enjoyable and would not do it again. Actually, once more if my wife decides to do it, I would ride with her to keep her company.
    17.5 hours, Winter Haven, Fl to Houston via New Orleans was boring.

    You ride that many miles it don't matter what the seat is. Your butt will fit it eventually!

    I have been riding for years and never replaced a seat. Lately I have been adding Bead Riders, but other than that I run the stock seat. Last few bikes were Harley baggers, stock seats are pretty wide and comfy, but still guys bitching about them. I bought an RT a year ago and was no really impressed with the seat, but I kept riding it. After 6,000 miles either the seat broke in or my butt got callouses in the right spots because no plans to change it.

    He had nearly a month where he did not ride because of bike issues. He ended up buying a used bike. But another way of looking at it is that he only had to ride 67 days, or once every five days, to break 100,000 miles. Piker....

    I mentioned it to my wife and she wondered when he had time to do it. I reminded her it was only 67 days of riding! 52 weeks in a year, a bit more than one ride a week. If he is retired, that leaves almost 300 days left to do other stuff!
