Just returned from a ride across Montana down into Wyoming with the V 2-up! Took three days and wore out my first stock rear tire @ 7000km's. Weather was very nice and bike handled the 90 DegF temp up and over the Bear Tooth pass quite well. The only thing I'd like to change is the seat. We stopped at least every hour for a rest but I thinking I'd like to try a different seat to see if I can do a little better. We rode one 14 hour day and 750 miles and we were very very tired and sore by that night but we managed to stay ahead of the rainy weather!
