What bikes are suitable for long drives, Is it normally high CC engine bikes? I'm looking for performance (not comfort preferred) ?

Other answer:

A bike that's comfortable. Most performance bikes have you bent up so you'll be aching in a couple of hours.

Any bike that is about to die. Chris did on a 90. I run the Interstate on a Vespa 150 (quite comfortably!) My old Savage kept with speed of traffic (and a bit more) — with just 30 bhp. How crazy fast do you want to go and pick a bike that can go that crazy. Higher displacement generally means less vibration at highway speeds. I took a GS450E up I-5 doing 85+ mph (circa 1982) — bike did fine, but I had to take a cigarette break every hour, just to de-buzz my hands.

Pretty much all bikes then that are in good condition I'd prefer a fzr 1000 personally

What is a "long" drive? How much performance?

If you are looking for performance then a ZZR1100 or a CBR1100XX.

Candid Chris:
How long of ride? I did nearly 3,000 miles on a Honda 90 from San Diego to Portland years ago. It was suitable because that was what I had.
