    A measly 850 miles, but then it's only 10 days old

    I'm on 3520 miles. 2305 miles on my trip to Catalunya from 8th June to 13th June for the Moto GP.
    I just can't wait to get back on it. Off to Gran Canaria on Saturday for 2 weeks. Dont know what I'll do with no bike.
    I may rent one and go for an island tour leaving my wife in the beach 😂😂

    This is something I've wanted to do for some time, I spent some time in Croatia with my other half a few years back but always considered riding there, glad you had no issues.
    Did you use the standard seat?

    Yes but not overly impressed. Saying that we have had several bikes and on every single one after 200 miles I am glad to stop for fuel etc so the 950 seat is average I guess. The huge advantage the adventure type bikes have is being able to stand up in comfort and ride up to 45mph ish.... especially when its above 30 degree heat. I am OK with riding like that having done a bit of offroad training etc...Took the Monster 1100 to WDW last year and whilst it was a great trip could never really stand up for any length of time sensibly...
