I do that regularly. It's not easy on a scooter though.

Don't tell Leon Bergemon (sp?) that.

Is not such a bad idea to get off the saddle for a few minutes every couple of hours.

Pterodactyl When Spousal Unit did her first SS100 she did it on a GS and on Montana interstates. Riding at 85 MPH is the norm, traffic is rare and wildlife are the biggest worry. She refused to let me ride with her and finished in under 17 hours. She stopped regularly including a leisurely lunch. I did ride out and met her about 100 miles from her finish.

the Ferret Congrats Mrs Bracken. Wow 21 hours on a 250 scooter. That's a long time in the saddle for one day.
