Last trip I went on, This is the trip..

Day 1 650Km, Day 2 - 650Km (400Km dirt sand and gravel) Day 3 - 700Km, Day 4 - 600Km Dirt, Sand and Gravel, Day 5 Tourist day, Day 6 - 600Km, Day 7 650Km, Day 8 - 400Km.

53 other bikes did similar distances, 1 1991 Tenere did a further 2000Km.

If I had no job and was independently wealthy then I suppose I would take it a lot easier on a small bike, but I have a certain amount of time to go off exploring.
