Take a look at the 2007 Triumph Tiger.

If you want great 'breaking' I would suggest an Enfield bullet. You can still buy them new and I heard they're pre-broken.

I haven't done any super long trips on my Tuono yet but I plan to do about 9.5 hours at a shot in about 2 weeks (one day trip from Frederick, MD to Charleston, SC). I'll be sure and post a howuzit from the arse trauma ward of the whatever Charleston hospital I end up in -- in all seriousness, I ordered an airhawk seat for the bike and (apart from leg ergos) expect to have a reasonably comfortable trip.



My longest single run so far (on this particular bike) has been about 2.5 hours but I've done 5+ hours at a shot on much older and less comfortable bikes in the past.

Every time you bring that up you shorten your lifespan you know.

Boss Hoss 502: because it's the only "Man's Bike" out there.



Really.

My war surplus Harley 45 sidevalve with suicide clutch and hand shift was great for trips back in 1949, and was plenty of power for a 16 yr old. It vibrated less than my Kawasaki H1 triple and got better mileage. The hydraulic tractor seat and springer front end was comfortable, too. No pushrods to adjust in either bike!
