  Sportbike Distance Riding
Yesterday was probably the fifth or sixth time I've done 300+ miles in a day on my 2005 R6. Make no mistake; it's not meant to be ridden those distances. My hands, arms, knees and butt (in that order) are definitely in pain by the end. For those of you who are thinking about getting a true sportbike and enduring days like these once in a while, here are some survival tips. Not that I think I'm an expert after going those distances just a handful of times, but I thought I'd share what I've done right (and wrong) so maybe someone can at least avoid the same mistakes I've made.
