here's my question the longest ive ever riden without stopping was 2 hours, well im planning to take a trip up norcal for my friends birthday. and it would take roughly between 4-6 hours. Well i was wondering is it bad to be riding that long, would the engine be hurting?

I don't know, longest for me has been about 2.5 - 3 hours... I would ride up with you to NorCal, I'd like to see some friends up there too!

I dont know everything about bikes but i think they can handle a 20hr ride if you check the fluids. Your bike has a cooling unit similar to a car and they can ride for days! The only issues ive heard are with harleys because they are air cooled. Even then i know people who rode 600+ miles on harleys and only stopped for gas and a piss. Good luck on the trip!

I did this before.. Southern virginia to Northern New Jersey. It was about 7 hour non stop riding. I stopped for three or four times to have a break and fill up gas. bike was totally fine.

I rode my bike from san diego ca to gulfport ms and trust me your bike will be fine however your ass will hate you., also depending how you sit your right leg will go numb and both of your wrist will hurt like hell. good luck and safe riding.

do it as long as u can bear it. ur seats are softer than the 06's and i don't think u'll have any mechanical problems. you'll just have a flat spot in the middle of ur tires after riding for that long!

i wounldnt worry about your back so much but i would recommend gloves, at least a leather jacket, and some tear aways ( the visor tapes that motocross riders use to "tear away" mud) the bugs in mid cali covered me last time i rode through there. Bees suck a$$
