08 GS Adventure

Left Williams Lake, BC at 0730 hrs, arrived Sacramento, CA at 0600 hrs the following day
1123 miles I believe was the exact distance
Last day of 24-day trip to Alaska
Almost stopped near Yreka, but the closer to home, the more gravity over
Had to stop at a rest stop near Willows and do some jumping jacks. Those last two hours before sunrise are the toughest

I hate to tell you this, but once you've done it... it gets easier.

After the first 1000 mile day, the next one was merely perseverance. (OK, doing the first on a KLR and the next one on an FJR made it easier...) then the BB1500. I'm going to take another shot at a BBG this summer.

when I did my BBG, I found the ride was easier than planning the trip, my destination was the Ozarks from New Hampshire, seemed like every route I planned had construction, going thru a metropolitan area the wrong time of day or several miles of uphill being held up by big rigs trying to get past big rigs, BBG out west is relatively easy compared to east coast. after visiting almost every state DOT website for construction plans, also thenextexit.com I took a northerly route and ended in Joplin, MO.

898 miles
'97 BMW RS
Grand Junction, CO to Pendleton, OR (missed an exit and had to double back at one point)

All ridden during daylight hours. That is the limiting factor for me. I dislike riding at night and stop at sunset.

We have an organised 1000 miler every year in New Zealand, done it the last 4 years running, loving it. They also enjoy sending you down the minor roads, but all sealed. Fastest completed in 17h 40m.

Used an 08 KTM 990 Supermoto for the first 3, then my current ride a '10 R1200 GSA for the 4th (real easy with the huge tank).

Roads are definitely more tight and twisty in New Zealand... 4 lanes is the widest our motorways ever get, in the middle of our largest cities...

Did do about 2000 miles in 52 hours (with a sleep in the middle) probably won't go there again... didn't stop for all the nice views, but it included several gravel mountain passes.

Low end of the spectrum

Longest ride so far has been Boston to Harrisburg. It's about a six hour drive, really doable.
