    Default RE and Saddle Sore

    Hi Guys,

    I would like to know the riders opinion on doing a SS on RE C-350... Would I be able to cruise this bike at 90km/hr for longer periods of time without any major issues?

    I have cruised this at 70-80km/hr for a couple of hours, but beyond that I am not confident enough. I really appreciate some insight into this... May be from some one who has done it!!!

    It's been a week since I posted this and unfortunately I didn't get any useful info or suggestions...

    Anyway, I will then try to find out myself... I will be riding to Chennai on december and will most certainly try to find out if the bike can comfortably do 80-90km/hr for long periods and the time it will take me to cover the 800 odd kms to chennai from trivandrum...
