    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.



    :lol3

    What are your mileage digits?:deal
