Buy a good seat and switch 'em out before you head home. 11 hrs/45 min stints in the saddle = approx. 15, or say 14 stops to revive your cheeks. 14 stops @ approx. 15 min each = 3hr 30 min. add that to the 11 hour trip and it's 14hr 30 min. You might plan on spending the night somewhere and breaking it up over two days. when i first got my 919, i thought it would be great to ride from Durham, NC to Knoxville, TN and back. nearly died and I don't think all the sensation has returned to my arse, yet! has anyone mentioned the stock seat is harder than rock? a vibrating rock?
sorry for the rant...enjoy the ride and the bike is great! (just needs a better seat, that's all).
