I haven't done 1,000 miles in a day, but I've done some pretty long days on bikes that were not supposedly "ideally suited" for the job. I'm a flower picker and picture taker. 700 miles on a KLR650 is a pretty good one. If your aim is just to get a piece of paper, get on the slab on a big tourer and wind it out. Otherwise, pick a route that is really interesting and run it. The top side of Lake Superior recommends itself. You can keep up a good rate of speed, and still see plenty.
