    I hate it if it's flat. Otherwise, no problemo. Well, I assume you're talking about gravel roads. I've ridden my SS as much as 50 miles at a time on gravel.

    But pavement sucks almost anytime.

    As for long rides in general, going big is my idea of a perfect day on the bike.

    We don't quit riding because we get old.
