Sorry you're not closer! I really like the C50 & the RK but I think you're right about too much weight on the tail bone. The cruisers (and touring RK) mechanically are up to longer rides- on good roads, but I think you have to have the right build in order to stay in the saddle long enough. For me, my bikes are fun for short trips around the area, but not necessarily for longer trips. I guess it's a preference for some, but I do notice that when I ride with other cruiser riders they like to stop a lot (and not just for gas). The cruiser-type bikes are also pretty diffecult to ride on gravel, and a bear to clean up afterwards.
