lol. A couple of years ago, I was 600 miles into a 900-mile day on my Ducati Monster, and stopped for gas in Winslow Arizona. There was another guy gassing up his bike, who turned out to be 700 miles into a 1000-mile day on his XB12S. We were both heading for Albuquerque for the night, so we rode that last 300 miles together, cruising at about 100mph through the New Mexico night.
