Nice. Let me rephrase the question for those with deviant ways of thinking.
How do you ride your motorcycle in a non-sexual way all day.
How many years you all got on ya to get up to notch for an all day event. I know this is a huge variable. I would love to go on some of the rides you do such as the last 5mile excursion but........theres always a butt.

I know, the simple reply is to get out and ride as often as possible and with others better than you. Any one got other suggestions?
Spread the pain around. Stand and only sit to rest legs or in tight turns. Use your feet and legs while pinching your knees. Let your hands just follow.
When your arms get pumped concentrate on riding your bike with your legs and vice versa.
The bike should vibrate enough for some deviants on this thread
so you may not need Viagra nevertheless that may be why we see the guys constantly revving their bikes in the parking lot and not going anywhere. If those are your feelings, you can always wear leather chaps and buy a Harley while hanging out at the Stockton gas station with your boys and a few prop girls for appearances!

Thanks for the suggestions. I am working on them. I bought some risers and that helped the standing up. Sitting is a natural thing to do so standing on the pegs is a work in progress.

Sorry no chaps or Harleys for me. Revving motors seems like comparing dick size. Its all show and typically no go. Performance is where it counts. Unfortunately I lack.

Wide foot pegs help too especially on the XR650r which has skinny stock pegs!

I make a conscious effort to have a very light grip on the bars, remind yourself of that throughout the day, peg steer, find a neutral standing position with tall bar risers, eat a ton of food, all day long.

That has never been a secret. For me a much shorter ride.

If you ride with most these guys the motivation to keep going is
the fact you don't know where you are or how to get back.
That is enough to try and keep their dust cloud in view and
endure to the end.

Excuse me, I've got to go get back to work on my ark.

Maybe we should just leave from Stockton since it's just up the road... Either way I'm good for it. PM or post the where/when and let's ride
