Sportsbikes.net riders come in at 443 miles per day on average.

Not really rocket science but interesting nonetheless - I didn't think the gap would be that big.
It'd be interesting to dive down a little further into the bikes too... big DS (V-strom, GS, Adv, etc) and the small DS bikes (WR, XR, EXC, etc), to the more street-oriented bikes (Guzzi, Ducati, etc), and see the miles between the different groups.

250mi on a street bike or big DS on the highway is an easy afternoon ride... do it on dirt trails and 250 miles is a long-ass ride.

My first long day was 1102 miles on a KLR650 during a SS1000 back in 2003.

More recently (2010) I did 1120 miles on a KLX250s for the SS1000 portion of a combined SS1000 and BB1500. Total miles for the SS/BB ended up being 1643 miles in 36 hours, BTW.

Have several rides over 1400 milles in a 24 hour day, but the longest was 1732 miles, from Gunnison, Co to Blueridge Motorcycle Campground in Cruso, NC.

600miles (965ish Ks) had to edit that when I checked the distance .... the extra was the next morning ... doh. Not a legend after all
Duc Monster
Gold Coast out west to Roma then up near Rockhampton. There were some unplanned detours.

Started at first light and had plenty of longish stops. Got to destination just on dark. I think this was the longest ... I don't keep a diary

400-600 miles is reasonable on a touring trip. That way you leave after, and stop before, too many critters are out.

Local day trips are more like 200 (up to 300) miles which is 1 - 2 tankfuls or thereabouts.

I can verify Road Hounds ride that day for those here that seem to need rides certified" or start calling BS
on people that don't care about license plate frames or certificates. RH did this ride on a red 1000 Kawasaki
Concours....

know what we do on motorcycles and that's good enough

Captain's Table is much better in Waynesville, it was built in the 1700's and doesn't even have
electricity. They have extension cords running in through the windows from the pole out back
to get power . Very hard to find (no sign and hidden under a very large tree) but very much
worth the effort

Ask a local to take you, that's about the only way to find it...

Enjoy"

1020 on a GS

1020 miles in ~17 hours on a 2005 1200GS for the SaddleSore 1000 certification and prison visit last June- Michigan to Georgia.

The Wedding Tackle was completely numb for 2 days afterwards. I may do another one this June, but will stand on the pegs more often!

My second longest day was about 850 miles. Barnegat Light, NJ to Youngstown, OH and back on a RZ350. It was actually very comfortable and stress free bike for long rides.

I've had a couple of 900+ days but 600 is about the max I really like to do in a day. Usually that's pushing to get to a destination or rally.
