Wink Record Your Longest Trip Miles Here

I thought it would be cool to have a thread where people could record the mileage of there longest trip/journey. I also wanted to see who did the most miiles in a single country.

My longest journey was from my house in Sitka, Alaska to Prudhoe Bay then down to Key West and back: 12,000 miles.

About 8,000 miles of those 12,000 were in the United States. For me that is the longest trip I've done so far and the most miles I put on my bike for one journey in a single country.





What are your mileage digits?

Longest was to Alaska and back, 8,300 miles, 19 or 20 days, KLR650.

Best was across the south half of Idaho and then to the top of it, 2,300 miles, 11 days, KTM 450EXC.


Green is riding, red and black are trucking, light blue didn't happen.
