I have a really stupid question..
How long can you ride this bike and how tall are you?

I absolutely adore these bikes and would really like to get one, but it would see some highway miles(5-600) at a time. Can you comfortably ride it on the highway for a length of time? Obviously the lack of windscreen comes into play..

Thanks!!

B Rad.. I commute on the highway for work every day with sunshine.. The windscreen is on my list to get, they do make one, I've heard it helps a ton. I went from a straight naked bike to this so I was already used to the beatings on the highway. It's from the wind and lack of fairings, not the bike. This bike rides smoother at 80 than my Yamaha did at 25. The stance doesn't wear you out as much as it looks like it does. The setup does leave me a little achy after about 2 hours of riding, mostly in the arms. But thats getting better as I ride more. I also need to get some softer grips these anodized gold ones are hard as hell after about an hour. For what your asking.. With a windscreen I'd say it's not an issue..Without one, you better be used to the naked bike ride. BTW, I'm a medium size fella, 5'9 155-160 and it fits me like a glove. My knees fit in the tank perfect, feet are flat on the ground when stopped. The suspension is completly adustable so ride height can be tailored.. This model is an 800, honestly it's more bike than I'll ever need. I just found 6th gear for the first time last week..
