520 miles on my SV650S

I seriously considered selling the fucking thing after I reached my destination. My entire body was sore for days.

1250 km's on a DL 650, pretty much legal speeds all the way, mainly on secondary roads.

Around 14 hours, but due to me getting lost :) I arrived at my destination (Sydney) in peak hour friday traffic - not fun at all.

700k's a day is no problem, more than that, I prefer to avoid.

645 miles, 2000 ZR-7 Kawasaki. Home to Currituck Lighthouse, a couple of detours and back home. 3/4 of the ride home was in the dark and pouring rain.

Just did a little run to stretch the legs of my new-to-me RT. 1400 miles in 2-1/2 days. Does it count as ADV?

Approximately 1240 miles in 22 hrs. Fort Worth Texas to Morden Manitoba on the 14th of December. Only 1 performance award and that was about 20 minutes outside of Dallas. Some very fast miles in the middle of the night and 200 or so slow miles in the Dakotas due to 4 inches of fresh snow.

I did about 1,500-1,550 miles in 26 hours from Jacksonville NC to Omaha NE. Was back in 1999 on a '94 VFR750.I was dumb enough to do it once, but I wouldn't do it again. My hands were numb for 2 days upon arriving, and I went there to hang out with an old buddy and jam on the guitar. I never saw any of Illinois or Ohio, it was dark the whole way through there. It was, however, the first time I found out you could pump gas using your credit card when a gas station was closed. The ride back was done in 2 days for sanity's sake.

1000 kilometres / 620 miles on a CBF 600 S, together with my father at the age of 18 or 19. That was the first day (same distance on the second day) of a two and a half days ride from Germany to Turkey. At the third day after 2500km / 1550 miles we arrived for lunch and picked up my mother and my little sister from airport in the afternoon. Four weeks later we did the trip back and in that month had traveled all in all about 7000km / 4350 miles.

Maybe the greatest holidays of my life.

Are they all that way? I found the same on the last grueling trip I took (which was an early srping night-ride a year and a half ago), and thought I got lucky somehow. At that time of the morning (from like 1 AM to 5 AM) everything in every little town in the middle of Florida is closed, and when you're hypothermic and running on the reserve tank... it is a miserable situation to find yourself in.

A little over 800 miles (all back-roads) at a "brisk" pace from Paterson,NJ up to Montplier(?) VT. and back. Body was fine, but brain was tired due to the "briskness" of the pace.

720 miles between Quesnel BC and Dease Lake. Was during the 2006 Alcan5000, included three TSD sections, and about 300 miles of dirt roads.

7:41 start for me I believe and rolled into Dease Lake about 10:30pm.

Was brutal...

A few months ago I did a little over 1700 miles in 36 hours. I think the first 24 hours was 1100 or so. That was on a trip up to Canada and I can't say that the driving was all that enjoyable... Covered a lot of distance though.
Ride on.
