Curious to know how long you've been riding and what bikes you owned before your BMW. Nice to have that option, but for me big miles is not job one. Just depends on your pace, plan and priorities I guess. I rode 1000 miles on my DR650 but only did so due to a family emergency. Would never chose to do that myself. But LD riding can be addicting to some. (IE: Iron Butt guys) Real travel is not about doing 1000 mile days. See Ted Simon.
