What's the longest stint you've done in the seat of your tracer without getting off ? Myself, I did 7 hours from Keswick to stoke, woke up in b&b/pub then did some gentle touring all around the lakes back to the motorway, got to Warrington and had to stop due to cramps

Rode the twisty way home from Germany to Norwich did have meal and drink breaks and ferry it took 24 and a quarter hours ,i was ment to sleep at the loft in Belgium but it was shut so came up with the silly plan of just going all the way home
I'm talking about not getting off the bike
Well iv sat on till its run close to empty but 170miles dont take too long
Max is 1 hour on the COMFORT seat. 30 min on stock...
I have a Seat Concepts seat with custom made sheep skin covers, you can sit on it for hours.
Peter Zeidler omg! What was the cost?
The Seat Concepts was done when I bought the bike so I don't know the cost. The sheep skin covers cost me $150 Australian by a local.
And you fill gas while sitting in the sadle. I prefer gas stations which hav pumps with card terminal that can be reached without leaving the sadle
Not allowed to fill your bike like that in Australia, you have to be off the seat.
Yeah I have seen some videos why not do that!!! A good reason to use anti static boots and gear.
7 hours without refuelling? Were you riding at walking pace escorting a convoi exceptional?
Good way to aggravate the old prostate!!! I can do about 4 hrs then it's piss time every 30 min..doh! 7 hrs good going that. Eye
Newark to Glencoe in a very roundabout way. No probs.
2 quick fill ups though!!!!!
Once did Tarragona Spain to central Lancs in 23 hours including ferry on an FJ1100, does that count ?
Has your arse ever recovered
I'll breake that 7h record next season. Need only prepare som food in a backpack
Tbf I did fuel in Windermere before I went off and did hardknott pass etc
After a ride home from Reims, with a break from the stock seat only long enough to get through the Channel Tunnel and put fuel in a couple of times, I decided a Bagster seat was needed. Such journeys are much nicer now as the seat is no longer topping the list of reasons to stop for a break.
Geneva to South Wales in a day, around 700 miles, on a R1150GS was too far. Limit it to a max of about 450 a day, if there is a section on motorways. Prefer days to be under 300 miles nowadays, 200 if in Alpine terrain.
