The ket to super long distance comfort on a cruiser, at least for someone like me with a bad back, is something to lean back against for support, whether it is an actual backrest, or whatever you have on the back part of the seat. Cruisers have tons of room to carry stuff. If you can get a sissy bar/rack (what used to be called a "highback rack" for your model, you can use a T bag on the rack attached to the sissy bar, and another bag on the back of the seat, also attached to the sissy bar, saddlebags, a tankbag (my Vulcan doesn't have any instruments on the tank, which makes that easy) and I have even used dual sport tricks, like front fender bags and tool tubes made out of ABS pipe. You can also use pretty much any kind of windshield you want. A Plexifairing III is almost as good as a Goldwing fairing.
