Complete lap of lake Huron 1000 + mi. No problem took 3 day for me to recover but the bike was fine
Last September, I rode from Las Vegas to Wyoming and back on my 06 C50T W/JD Drive. I made a couple stops on the way, to visit family and friends. My longest days ride on that trip was over 650 miles. I only stopped to sleep that night because I still had another 350 plus miles to go and knew I could not do that without rest. In my younger days, I had some 1000 plus miles days in a 24 hour period. I have not tried that for awhile as I am 74, as of last October. As mentioned before, many times in many threads, have a good seat. I have ridden almost 500 miles in one day with the OEM but made stops about every 1 or 1 1/2 hours to get off the seat. With the Mustang Seat, I rode over 180 miles without getting off and then I had to stop for gas.mrnascar97 said:I disagree. I did 437 miles in one day on my c50t with a Mustang seat and at the end of the day there was no pain. In fact I felt pretty good. I can't say the same for the HD sportster riders that were with me. I saw a hole lot of butt repositioning and standing up on the pegs toward the end of the ride.diehard said:If you ride 500 miles in one day, you're gonna be sore, I don't care what bike you're riding.
Bottom line it was all good.
Took a 4,500 bike trip this summer. Ran great. Used some oil with interstate speeds.Have an 07 c50t with a c90 drive. Has anyone taken this type of bike on a longer road trip 500+ miles. If so, how did it perform? Are there issues to be aware of and things to do to insure a fun and safe trip? Thanks, NCCC50t
