Mileage is not necessarily the "longest" day. I've ridden 1200-1500 miles several times. It was tiring but nowhere near the effort that I had when I blindly followed my GPS to NF Road 150 in the Gila NF (New Mexico).
39 miles of badly washboarded road and creekbed on a fully loaded C14. It was, by far, the hardest day of riding I've had in over 300,000 miles of riding. I even splurged on a hotel in Silver City to "celebrate".
I was glad to be finished.
Yet, it pales in comparison to some of the rides of other ADV'rs.
