1 Wheel Drive The stock seat is pretty brutal. If Iím going to keep my AT I am definitely going to need to have a custom seat made for it.

Robert Detjen My favorite day ride is a 400 mile loop through the Texas hill country. On my FZ-09 I had to stop twice to fill up. I've done it non stop on the ATAS - but my ass was ready to get off. I had a Corbin seat on the FZ (and I had 2 breaks, but I'm still using the stock on the ATAS. I'm doing a 1,500 mile 3 day trip with some friends next month. I'm tempted to buy a Corbin before the trip...

XLGeorge Done 700ml / 1100km a few times two-up with luggage on my 2017 manual with modified front seat (London - south France, Belgrade - Athens the most notable ones).

Africabob I have ridden 700 km in one day.
I added some highway pegs to my AT DCT and they make all the difference in the world.
Being able to switch your position while riding helps a lot to ride long distances.

Desert rider Its not the distance one can ride in one day, itís the enjoyment of the ride no matter how far or fast one rides. ✌🏻👀🤡

MegaDon I just spent th last two days riding 1,300 miles, half on interstate and half on curvy roads. The bike is a 2018 Adventure Sports with the stock seat (changing seat soon).

Synopsis: Bike was fine, seat sucked, my butt hurt...

I am also creating a new post with more info.

gvmumbral This weekend I rode to Tijuana from Pasadena, just to get me 6 Tacos de Carnitas.

300 miles in 6 hours. Round trip.

I used to do the same driving, but lane splitting is just waaaaaay faster. Even crossing the border back to the US took me less than 4 minutes.

roy826 Not to far with tube tires. Just do not trust them. Hate the thought of a roadside repair even though I tote a spare tube, tire irons, bead breaker and rim protectors in my tail bag. My 1-800-AMA roadside assistance card which even with that I'd still not enjoy the experience while traveling on it.

DCTFAN I couldn't vote because there was no choice for 900+ miles

It pulls the fuel out of this tank first then out of the main tank.
That is so cool.
