So I'm looking at a 2015 or 16 Road Glide Special to do some serious solo touring with and I'm wondering how many miles a day can you put on one of these critters? I'm a little afraid of the rear suspension(only 2.1inches of travel). My old 2000 RG was an all day bike, had to retire her with 144K on the old girl.

I've ridden 500 in a day with OEM seat and shocks. I'm sure I could have gone further, but GF was ready to call it a day! lol Recently changed the seat to an Airhawk and plan on upgrading the suspension front and rear soon. GF is already much happier with the seat and could see longer rides in her comfort zone. Also should be able to extend that mileage significantly after suspension upgrades. Stock rear shocks suck pretty bad...
