I rode from the Seattle area to Daytona Beach, Florida on that trip in the photo. 4000 miles one way, did it in 6 days. Stopped in Lake Charles, LA, Houston, TX, and stayed in Tucson for a week and a half on my way back. My left hand was totally numb for 10 days after I got to Daytona. Would not do that again on a sportbike, unless it had raised bars like maybe a FJR1300 or VFR with heli bars. ( next time I think I will take a cruiser or a touring bike.)

When I was riding through Dallas at night (trying to find my motel), a guy on a sportbike up on the back wheel went by me, and he weaved in and out of traffic for about 6 miles, then exited the freeway still up on the back wheel. Never seen anything like it. A bike was following him, I think filming it.
