Longest trip on a single cyclinder bike was Land's End to John O'Groats on a Royal Enfield back in around 2003. That trip was around 750 miles, I think, as there was almost no motorways involved, for obvious reasons.

Mind you, I did take 4 days for that one...:)

Cheers

About 9000 miles in 24 days, around the US, in 1984 on a 1979 Triumph Bonneville special, solo, camping the entire time.
No trouble except a flat front tire at the Grand Canyon, patched it the next morning, I was beat from walking down and up that big hole.
Nothing but great fun on that trip.

~7500 miles in 11 days across the top of the US from Michigan to Washington state, down thru Death Valley to Las Vegas and east across the southern states, then angling back to Michigan from Little Rock, AR. No freeways involved. I visited 42 states in 12 months.

Longest day was over 1000 a few times.

July 2010 myself and 2 buddies rode from Cleveland to Redmond Oregon for the BMW MOA National. We didn't exactly take the direct route. End result was 8500 miles over 27 days camping the entire way with less than 1000 miles of interstate. Best trip of my life....so far.

~6200 miles in 7 days CA, OR, WA, BC, AB, ID on a big crisscrossing loop.
Some camping, some snow, hail, rain, extreme highs and lows within 5 min of each other.
Great trip and can't wait to go longer. Getting 7 days away from home, let alone work is a big deal with a toddler at hime

May have been the ride to WY and back (K100RT 5000mi?) or a ride from AZ to Guatemala and back (GS 5500mi). Can't be certain. All of my rides have been on BMW bikes with their intermittent spedo/odo, so I can only guesstimate.
