aw man, I hadn't read your thread:Originally posted by TSLoW
hey nuke youve never ridden before right? when do you plan on going? i read your other post. For a new rider i wouldnt suggest going on a trip like that until u have some decent saddle time.
There are alot of differences between semis, which are made to comfort long distances and a regular car. but i do agree with the statement above that long distances make you more tired, then to throw a bike in the twist and thats a different story. when i first posted on this i didnt know that you were a newb and dont even have a bike yet. i would def agree with what alot of people said before about not doing the trip, i have been riding for about 6 years now and wouldnt do a trip that big. well i would if i had the proper time frame to do it in a safe manner which means alot of sleep and rest. when ever i ride even short trips i take plenty of water with me and at everystop i drink as much as i can, yes you might have to pee alot but that adds another stop to rest. i would def re think your ride and what you are going to get.Originally posted by Broken
First off, hello from good ol g-funk, nuke. Second, someone said 500-800 miles a day in a cage is too much. For the record I disagree, I drove semis for awhile and you quickly learn how to go long distances without a buttload of fatigue. On a sportbike though, I agree that it pry is pushing your luck.
