I just did 2400 miles in 3 and 1/2 days on my YZF 750R with not too much displeasure. (from Vero Beach to Tennessee and back) Tennessee to Vero was done in one sitting, stopping only for gas and food...Whew!) The only things I have changed comfort wise are the hadlebars (TBR riser bars 1 and 1/2 inch rise) Liquid bar snake in the bars, gel grips and a corbin seat (the stock seat is really just as good. I wouldn't buy another.) I took along my Tourmaster sport bags, Tail bag, and tank bag. The VFR 800 or a BMW R1100S will be my next bike this coming year though.
