My first road trip

Last Tuesday night, at about 9pm, me and a friend took off from my house in South Hill, to Lake Chelan. It's about 200 miles east. We both have chatterboxes, but his battery wasn't charged, so we lost com in a matter of minutes. So we just rode, we stopped a lot though. (gas, or have a smoke and talk, and once to eat.) We met up with my girlfriend at the family vacation cabin (right on the water) for a few days, then headed back on Sunday. Chatterboxes fully charged, nice warm was pretty sweet. Totally different than the ride there cause...WE COULD ACTUALLY SEE! It took us just over 4 hrs. to get back cause we only stopped to eat and top off the gas. (The ride TO Chelan took about 6.5!!) It was fun though. I didn't really want to get off my bike when I got home. Everything was fine as far as being comfortable, my boy said his left knee bothered him for a sec, but after we ate, he said it was fine. I was a little "saddle sore" i guess you would call it, but that's all. I feel like I could just ride forever. Anyone out there go on any semi-lengthy to lengthy rides?
