Went on a 691 mile ride yesterday on the R3 from Phoenix to the New Mexico boarder and back. This is the longest ride I've done so far on the rocket, just about doubled the total miles on it now. The seat seems to be getting more comfortable the more I ride it. My average fuel mileage was about 41 MPG and I wasn't at all easy on the throttle. Lots of blasts past slower cars. The bike just hummed along without any problems.
