Just for interest really. I only got my bike in Jan and rode 280 miles yesterday to sit with my dad in his back garden for a few hours. I felt pretty good on the way there, just a knot in my shoulder but on the way home my bum ached and my inner thighs ache today from gripping the tank. Not muscles i normally use i suppose. lol. I have a honda comfort seat but towards the end of the ride it was uncomfortable. Getting more time on the bike will help for sure. The old man even joined me for a stint on the way home on his wing. How do you lot find long rides?
