I can occasionally ride for 12-14 hours on my VTX when traveling cross country and rode up to Huntsville, Alabama last weekend and back rolling just under 1000 miles.

I'd be curious to know what your longest ride to date has been on the Fury and what toll did it take on you both physically and mentally?

I rode back from Gatlingurg, Tennessee today. To Indianapolis, IN. 419 total miles. Had to stop 3 times for gas though. It wasn't as bad as i thought it'd be. And i haven't even been riding for two weeks. Rode the dragon also! Over 600 miles since thursday and loved every minute

Nice ride only watch cross winds!

Rode for 180 miles when i bought it... I now average 120 miles between refuel. Been riding for 22 years longest ride was from San Antonio to Chicago!!

This is not a starter bike and you cant get to lazy or relaxed its to light in steering to chill.

Over all the ride for 3 hour was good and I could have road another hour!

Only experienced slight wind wobble at 80 mph. Wont go faster watch for high winds/ only passing crazy ass car drivers doing 78 in the slow lane.

I still have my Vmax and wont even touch it now I have my Fury !!
The Vmax will send spike jolts up your spine after 100 miles and you will be doing yoga breathing on a ruff road so in closing the Fury has a better ride than the Vmax...

I finally got out yesterday for a decent length ride, about 180 miles round trip. The bike rides well out on the highway but it was extremely windy yesterday so I was getting blown around quite a bit. The only problem I found is that the bars could be just a bit higher for my preference, but other than that it was very comfortable.

Went riding saturday. went about 175 miles road trip. The GF went with me she said her butt was starting to hurt after awhile. might try the airhawk pad see if that helps her out on the longer rides. For me it was a good ride. lower back did start to hurt a little at the end of the ride. Being 5'10 and having to stretch a little more then most might have something to do with it. was happy at how well he bike did going 65-75 mph for most of the trip. Went 112 miles before the light came on with both of us on it.

Longest one day ride so far was about 400 miles. That took about 8-9 hours total due to riding at reduced speeds ~65-70 mph (faster than that and the wind becomes a major fatigue factor).

The longest ride I've done on a Fury was 458 miles with my wife on the back. My In-Laws were down from Minnesota and they rented a Harley for the trip. With all the riding and stopping, the trip took about 10 hours.

I was fine throughout the ride, about 200 miles into it my wife started complaining about her butt on the small passenger pad (opps) :D I didn't really have a problam with cross winds. The Fury was a lot faster then the 1800 Harley my Father in law rented though :cool:

Predator, Harley doesnt have a 1800. If its a new 96 cubic inch, then its only a 1584 cc bike.

Longest to date has been around 320.... went the long way from the Cali-Mex border, up the 15 and then cut out for some back road riding for some winds... got up to Julian just fine with no problems all the way back to the house.
This is my first bike in 15 years and I would not get another... very easy to ride and not to mention to enjoy:D

I rode back from Kentucky to Iowa in one day 630 miles. I wore a full face helmet on the way back so wind and rain were not an issue. :) Our trip was only about 2500 miles for the week but the seat sucks for riding very long even though I like a hard seat.
