Wow. Must be an epic ride. One of my to do list is to do a long ride solo or with a buddy. Will need to get a touring for that though .

Bun Burner Gold is most impressive, well done! My longest day ride was 1,098 miles doing the Saddle sore 1000.

Iron butt. Wow. I had monkey butt after only 200 miles ride . Wish Corbin will make a solo seat not a fan of their gunfighter design.

Mustang Motorcycle Seats called yesterday and said the Tripper Solo Seat I ordered for the Rebel has been made and is ready to ship...holiday on Monday so will be shipped out Tuesday and I should get it hopefully by Friday.

I did four SaddleSore 1000's prior to the Bun Burner Gold...three of them certified...one I never submitted the paperwork. I gave up on all that foolishness after the BBG.
