GSXR touring?

Hello everyone. Having had a bandit 650 for a while and enjoying every bit of it, I'm now seriously thinking of going sportbike and buying a 2011 GSXR 600. While I really like the trackday capability of this bike, I would also like to use it on relatively short tours (anything from 2 to 5 hours), possibly 2 up, from time to time. Is it not such a good idea on a gixxer?
Also, is it really true that having tired and hurting wrists and arms mean that your position on the bike and use of your muscles is wrong? Thanks for your help

It is odd, I've not read anyone else saying the same about the 600L1.  The 1000L2 was right back where I expected it to be - whole chassis feeling balanced and timed as one - competent even on the tightest nadgery unclassified road..

Gsxr tourin

I had on 09 gsxr 600 toured all over, I live in the north east always travelled to Portsmouth for ferry 350 miles then onto France as long as you take brakes usually every 100 miles you can tour on any bike large or small that's the adventure, just know your limits and trust your instincts, take the right gear and enjoy that's what I do
