Agreed, and am going.
I've confirmed with the group, and am going on this ride. It matches what you're all saying about "doable" distances (assuming ability and stamina, for which I will be careful). I've been out on 2.5 - 3 hrs rides these past weekends and just wish I could have stayed out longer. No fatigue to speak of, feeling very comfortable on the bike.
The ride will totally be broken up into segments -- after the highway and before the mountains, then big long lunch, and less of a ride home at the end of the day. It'll be a great, sunny day, perfect for experience. Oh joy!!! Probably going to get a Givi 22L Easylock tank bag if I have time tomorrow. If not, who cares?
Forgot to mention that most of the group is riding Harleys. They'll probably want to stop and stare at their bikes every few miles. Not sure what the difference in riding style will be (though I can guess), but I'm really looking forward to the whole thing. I'll let you know how things go.
Thanks for your $0.14 (two cents from 7 comments).
