This thread is getting old. I was the first responder with the CBR600 and last summer I put 8000+ miles on my GSXR1000. I installed Heli-bars on the bike and aftermarket lowered foot pegs which helped a lot. It is now more comfortable than the CBR was. I am 6'1" and weigh 230 in pretty good weightlifting shape. I am also 57 years old. I found the bike to be just the difference I was after. It handles even better than the CBR and has of course more torque. The power is good but not really scary. I don't have any tickets yet so you know I am not that fast on it although I can wheelie and stoppie with it. Oh yea! It gets 45-55 mpg on trips and I don't use it for much race riding since you have to be willing to go to jail to use the power in that range. I use soft luggage and have no desire to find another sport touring bike.

Hi All-

Depending on the distance, I would figure that most Honda sportbikes are comfortable up to about 500 miles per day without a passenger.

One might want to go with a high-quality aftermarket saddle and stop for a fresh cup of coffee every 100 miles, but it should certainly be "doable" for many in reasonable physical shape. I bring this up because the conditioning of the rider is probably the biggest factor in many of these questions. What do you think?
