Anyone up for a long ride?

I'm riding from Plant city to Palatka (about 30 minutes out of Daytona) tomarrow if anyone wants to join me lol. Its about 2 to 2 and 1/2 hours each way. I'm crashing at my dads for a few days to help him with some stuff. Its a great ride though. About 60% of it is through Ocala National Forest. Which is nothing but flat long road in the middle of, well a forest. Great for flying, which is what I'm hoping to do. I want to make it their in about an hour and a half. Wish me luck all, wish it wasn't a solo ride, because its gunna be a damn fun one.

2.5 hours isn't too long. Do-able in one run. Just don't expect to go 5 hours one way without stopping. Back pains right there for yah.

Yea I'm leaving in about 20 minutes. It's only a "long ride" because I have to turn around and do it again in a day or two lol. You interested Dewayne?

when ever I'm going on a long ride for more than 90mins, I try to hook up my mp3 player on my tank baggie, cruise with style while listening to my music.

I almost always do that. I did that one the way up here as well. BTW I made it lol. It took about 3 hours, damn Eustis traffic friggin 20mph... My back is killing me from riding with 45lbs on it, but o well. I averaged about 100 through all of Ocala though.
