This September... Bought a New Yamaha S10, did My break in locally, then went Green Bay to Glacier NP, south to Phoenix Az. west to Santa Barbara, north to Bend Or. and back home to GB... 13 days, 8000+ miles.

Way too short of a trip time wise...was humping it most of the days. 2- 2 day visits...1 in AZ, one in Cali.

Thanks to the Interstate Highway System, it is now possible to travel from coast to coast without seeing anything.

I never plan a ride, just the destination and that's always subject to change.

Roughly 2000 miles, riding from southern MD, to east TN, around east TN, and back to MD. Over 4 days, on Christmas weekend. Was it the most distance in miles? No. But it was certainly my roughest trip so far. The best weather I seen was 34 degrees and raining. Worst was an icy fog, with visibility around 20 feet. I am glad I made the trip on the bike, because the alternative was to not go. And given the family situation at the time, I am glad I went (had to go). When I got home, I was pretty confident that all other rides would be possible, no matter how challenging. Sometimes, it's not the distance, but the challenge.

My longest was from KC up to Thompson, MB (via Atikokan), then over to Vancouver, south to Seattle, then back through ID and MT to Yellowstone, across to Cheyenne, down to Denver, and back home in ten days. I've also been out to Halifax through Maine and back via Sault Ste Marie, up to Radisson QC through Buffalo and back home via Thunder Bay, and down to Key West via the Dragon and back via New Orleans. I envy you guys who can take off for a month or six and go ride across continents.
