does anyone know of a cheaper alternative?
Paulj is a sexually over active sadist, who has an arse made of titanium. I would not ride my XR650 further than 150 miles without an anesthetic It would spoil the trip as you would be so uncomfortable. A 150 mile round trip is enough for me on my motard. You need something more comfy in my opinion. I would go naked bike /sportsbike or tourer bike that is over 500cc to be honest. Can you hire one for the trip? I bet for a couple of hundred quid you could hire a bike for a holiday. Go and hire a VFR800 and enjoy the ride
Or, tell your mate that you're picking the route and go via every twisty b road you can find on the map and have a break after every 50 miles.Your mate will be the one who's knackered at the end of the day and you'll be smiling from ear to ear for a fortnight.Face it, motards aren't tourers, it's against the motard law anyway. The only way you'll survive is to inject your arse cheeks with local anesthetic twice a day and then get a rub down by a blond Swedish massuse at the hotel.Husky
Actually I've toured on a TZR 125 R (320 Km trip on 1 day), that basically is as confortable as a SM I reckon... It can be done... you just got to have the spirit! Couple of mates of mine done similiar trip on DTR and DT 50 LC. They where wheeling everywhere and only took B roads. Great fun they said!
"A: thanks Sweep for letting everyone know i'm a nutter"That's alright , I have followed you remember It's good to have a nutter reputation you don't want people to think you are boring and predictable like me
How can he be a nutter ??? He's an Old Fart on a touring bike ! :smoke:
There is dedication and there is madness.
