Most miles you've done in a day

I posted this same poll at sportbikes.net and wanted to see the difference between there and here. The average is hovering around the 401-600 mile range there. I suspect there will be a lot more high mileage days here. Here's the link to that thread: http://www.sportbikes.net/forums/gen...-done-day.html

THIS POLL IS IN MILES NOT KILOMETERS

Like the title says, what's the most miles you've ridden in a day (24 hours)?

Also, if you'd like, post details in this general format:
Bike:
Miles:
Trip:

For me
Bike: Ninja 250
Miles: 1017
Trip: Somewhere in central NC to Deals Gap then back home in PA in 22 hours and some change

Four of us rode back from Daytona Bike Week. One bike had 135 mile tank range. Six fuel stops, one lunch stop, and one rain gear stop.

Eleven and a half hours total time for just over 700 miles.

Time: <24 hours
Mileage: 1250-1280

I was riding with a friend who was on a DR650. We intended to do the Iron Butt ride that is something like 1500 miles in less than 32-35 hours, but when we got to the motel that night to get a little sleep, I was done and just wanted to sleep in. Neither one of us got any real sleep before we left and it caught up. He had the stock DR fuel tank too, so that hurt us a little on time. It also got cold, very cold and once again neither one of us was prepared for it. I did have some cool weather gloves, but he didn't and had to stop at a store and buy some of those brown cotton gloves, which didn't really help.The little bit we went through Missouri near the end was what I think was the worst. There was a hard blowing dust storm the whole way and there were several fires that smoked out the road.

I want to attempt it again, but will be better prepared and well rested before the start. It shouldn't be a problem next time. Not the first time I've gone over a 1,000 miles on the XRL, but I still don't have one of those license plate frames to say it for me.

Yeah, I want an Iron Butt frame as well! I didn't plan on doing a 1000+ mile ride in a day, so I never completed the requirements for Iron Butt. I think I will do one this summer through New England.

Was heading back from San Diego and the plan was just to stay in Atlanta. It was in November and the weather was nice, cool, and sunny. I hit the Atlanta traffic around 6 and then headed North. I was going to stop and just get something to eat and stay there but was feeling good so decided to push it. The only problem was it started to get cold as the sun went down. But that kept me awake. Got home at almost midnight. The funniest thing is I was 10 miles away and a deer ran out in front of me. Luckily, it was already across by the time I got to it. Would have sucked to wreck after going that far. First and only time I've ever driven over 1,000 miles in one day.

40c (104f) for the first half of the day. Ran so low on fuel I had to blow air into the safari tank every 10km to pressurize it which forced fuel into the carbies. Got a wasp up my jacket at one point which stung all up my arm. Hit a locust plague. Eventful day.

504 miles one long day to the edge of Michigan and back. Rode back in the rain.

The KLR most unfriendly at those kind of clicks, even with a seat upgrade. But we did it and had fun.

Hello, Honda Pacific Coast anyone??

1396 miles in the CAL 24. Only good enough for second place. Several years ago. BMW R1150RT. Less than 100 of those miles were on the super slab.
