The longest you've ever spent in the saddle in one day?

So I'm just curious again, what's the longest you've ever spent in the saddle (or standing up) in one day?

Me myself, about 11 hours. I was touring in Europe with my BMW 650 Dakar, rode about 8h straight south on the back roads of Germany, found a place for the night, happened to be close to the alps and what was suppose to be a quick look around town ended up as a 3h alp tour

The next day I rode 2h....

I bet you can beat that, come on

Thumb My longest

My longest day was 23.5 hours and about 1350 miles. Denver to the middle of nowhere Ohio. I didn't want to ride for a few days afterwards, but I did it. I still can't figure out why though.

So far, my Iron Butt SS1K ride. Left at 0600-ish, and returned at around 11:00pm.
A close second: left Oxford, MA at 0515, and arrived in Columbus, OH at around 9:30pm. Somewhere around 800 mi, if I recall

About 16 hours; Vicenza to London via Simplon Pass, 985 miles, riding a 650 Africa Twin. Not sorry to get off that rubbish seat.

16 hours. 1456 kilometers. On a frickin Harley. I was trying to make some miles so I could get it home and give it back to it's owner. I'm seriously thinking about trying to stomp out that old record on my next trip

21 hours, from Gudo[Italy] to Amsterdam. I rode backroads and local roads through Italy, Austria, Switzerland and France until I got on the motorway at Nancy, so the 'grand total' was only 1200 kilometers, but I rode from 08.00 Thursday morning until 05.00 Friday morning.

900 milers

Two of them this spring. Only stopping for restroom, food, and fuel. (No sit down lunches. Just snacking.) I love the focus of the long ride.

R12GS with Mayer saddle (can't remember which Mayer). Also good core strength helps. Keeps the back from sagging.

A little over 36 hours. 2,461 miles. I did my IBA 50CC in one haul. I did take about a 15-20 minute stop at a gas station in Texas to check tires and top off the oil and stretch for a few minutes.
