    Longest trip I ever took on a scooter was about 1200 miles, and it took 3 days. Scooter was a Yamaha Vino 125. I was not in any hurry, and stopped often (the Vino 125 has a 70 mile range before it runs out of gas)

    For something like a Silverwing, I would assume it would be the same as a full sized motorcycle. Vino averages about 50 mph.

    You averaged 400 miles per day on a scooter that isn't freeway capable, you weren't in a hurry, you stopped often, & averaged 50MPH?:lurk

    I guess I forgot to mention that the days here are 15 hours long. It is daylight from before 5:00 AM till after 8:00 PM.

    well if you average 35 mph moving then it is a nice ride, the other day on motorcycles we did average around 30 mph for the day, and we only cover 350 miles so it took close to 12 hours, we were a bunch of guys just going over to the mountains for the first time most of them and I was the lead rider, and never I did over the speed limit!

    I think doing it solo I could do 250 miles with the scooter and just have a nice day on it.
    Summer is not here yet, maybe in a month or so, not that I want 100F but the long days will be good, 5:30 am sunrise and 8ish sunset
