We rode 135 miles about 15 hours on the bikes yesterday, 27 of us riding some awsome single track and roads in Montana. By the time we got home at 11pm my butt and legs were so sore.
anyone ride that long? any suggestion to help keep butt from getting so sore? And theres no way i can ride standing up for 15 hours but probabley stood half the day.

awsome day but forgot my camera

I use a pair of padded FOX riding shorts and they really helps but the seat on my 07 WR450 is something out of the middle ages so I am looking at a Guts tall seat with softer foam!

Try an airhawk air seat.

or a renazco unit.

15hrs and you're going to get monkey butt pretty much regardless.
But padded MX shorts with the shamy inside sprinkled with baby powder will help.

Baby powder applied directly to "the entire area" will eliminate this. Vasaline also works.

Dust your wedding tackle with Gold Bond powder to stop the chaffing. Padded riding shorts are key, but check the chamis inside before committing. A good, soft chamis will add miles to your ride, and allow you to walk with your feet in there usual track versus in an arch like that in St. Paul/St. Louis.

P.S. For a little extra tingle, use GB Medicated (green bottle)!

Budrouse butt paste. I'm not kidding. It is diaper rash ointment and will numb the applied areas, that's a good thing!

Question, who held up better on this ride, the young guns or the grisled old guys??

Well I'm 54 and 135 miles is a bit far for these old bones.

Everyone held up fine, some were comlaining more than others. but overall i think the older guys did less complaning and held there own on the knarly trails. There was many good crashes mixed between the young and old alike. No major injuries. We do this as an annual ride and try to change it up a bit.

It a great time and if anyone would like to join us let me know. Ill can keep informed on next trip
