I took the long way to the Rally - I went along the coast of Michigan, across the UP and back down - Three days of travel and my a** was in really bad shape. I picked up a Sargent saddle at the rally for my 1150RT and decided to "Iron butt" it home on Sunday. 800 miles with breaks to gas and eat and had NO PAIN on the way home. I arrived at 1:45AM Expensive, but worth it.
