1473 Miles 2 up on our ST1300A (with a Russell Day Long saddle), does that count?

On the GSA, my longest day is 825 solo.

I love it

Talking

After the Canyonlands Motor Classic in Moab, I rode my KLR to my home in Riverside (via Panguitch, the fun route) non stop, ~730 miles

After 2007 Westfest, rode my Tiger 1050 from Sipapu home in one stretch ~890 miles. Thought about going around Lake Havasu to get the 1000, but it was hot and I am a big baby.

I rode from Arcata home after Raindog's gig on my 950 Adventure in one shot, too. ~820 miles. I rode the Lost Coast, the Redwoods, and the one from the start up north to SF, planned to stay the night there, but the hotel lot was full so I said F it and rode the rest of the way home. 9am-3am on the bike.
That was my longest day on a bike, also one of the best days I've ever had riding.

Even though the other 2 days were longer, I never felt so shattered as I did after riding home from Moab on my KLR.

I remember when 200 miles was a long day... that was about my first month of riding.

trips

In 1995 I rode my then 1985 Honda CB700SC Nighthawk-S from New York to Florida and back (Canadian border of NY) total of 3,500 miles in 8 days, no planned route and no maps. Spent a couple days in Florida and a couple days in maryland. Longest day was from South of Tampa to the New York/PA border just over 1,000 miles. started at 4:30 A.m. Arrived at about 11:00 p.m. The next day went to the mason Dixon Raceway and made three passes on the bike, best was a 13.0 at 105 mph. Still have pictures and the time slip. All in all was a great trip, lots of fun!

Also have done over 1,000 miles in one day on my 1998 Vmax. in summer of 2010 and have done over 800 miles in one day on the BMW K1200RS also in 2010

In 24 hours never paid attention. In '84 I rode an RZ350 from Midlothian TX to Columbia MD (odometer said 1449 miles) in 35 hours. That included 6 hours or so sleeping in Knoxville Tn.

Canada (almost) to Mexico (almost)

Back "in the day", I travelled from Bellingham, Wa. to the US/Mexico border in San Diego. Depending on which internet source you trust, I travelled close to 1200 miles in under 24 hours. Lotsa' coffee and not too much else. At the time I was on A Kawasaki 550 LTD; 6-speed tranny, over-sized counter sprocket, Metzler 880s (or equivalent then), fork-mounted fairing, one-up and loaded with gear, and burning fuel from a tiny 3.2 gallon tank. Probably the first few hundred miles in Washington state were in a steady rain (yeah, I was shocked at rain in Washington too ) at night.

When travelling long distances, I would calculate my mileage when the low fuel light came on and then do the calculation again when I hit my reserve tank for comparison and then decide when I needed to stop for fuel. Heading through the San Joaquin Valley in California where giant corporate farms dominate as far as the eye can see and highway exits were few and far between, it took forever for my low fuel light to come on. When it finally did come on, the indicated mileage was ridiculous for my bike which had dutifully given me mileage in the 50's. A while later when I hit reserve and did the calc's again, the mileage was again very high. I had the choice of stopping within a couple miles within my normal tank range, or I could trust my math skills and shoot for the fuel stop my calculations said I could reach. I trusted the math and ended up travelling 232 miles on just under 3.2 gallons (3.1x), or over 70mpg while keeping pace with traffic at about 80 mph. Kind of nerdy to remember the exact numbers, but I recall the internal debate when faced with walking MANY miles to get fuel if my math was off.

I love stories like this one, you rock young man I bought my Daughter a
KZ 550 standard model for her graduation and she had many a great tour on
hers also"

Your memories from that ride will stick with you the rest of your life, you'll have
great stuff to pass on to your children and grandchildren

Greenbelt MD to Bangor, ME

Greenbelt MD to Bangor ME in September 1998. It was a lot warmer than I expected, which was good because I had a naked R1100R. I went there to participate in a Legionnaire's Disease case. A worker at the Air Guard base came down with it and almost died. Our industrial hygienist went up there and surveyed the workplace and found nothing. She then went to his house and found that the water line to his house had cracked. Bacteria from the ground got into the water, and his hot water heater was set too low to kill it. So, every time he took a shower he was breathing in steam contaminated by Legionella bacteria. He sued the city and hot water heater manufacturer.

While up there I had a day off so that day I rode from Bangor to St. John Canada and back.

Great trip!

Last Sunday Aberdeen MD. To Cape Charles VA. across the bay bridge tunnel. And up through VA. Damn traffic held me to 13 1/2 ours and a bad back. If i didn't rely on the gps I probably could've made it quicker.
Edit; With all the stories in this thread, I should plan a longer trip!
