I did an Iron Butt Saddle sore 1k.   1000 miles in less than 24 hours.  Was on an older Kawasaki Concours.

I did a round trip to Nashville that was less than 500 miles I think. And, I was on a 1100 Honda Sabre.

I have pulled several 500-700 mile days on multiple bikes. Recently was our ride from last year to the ohlins factory abd back. I personally logged 450 miles that day.
Maybe we should do an ironbutt ride this year??

I did 1024 miles in 24 hours on my 1979 GS1000S in 2000 just so I could say I'd done it after my Gold Wing friends kept dogging me about their long distance days.  It was mostly just long...no butt ache to speak of.  I've done a lot of 700 - 800 mile days on that bike as the stock seat is superb.


This summer I rode my BMW K100RS down to Biloxi, MS via Columbus MS from Maryville (about 650 miles) non stop both ways.


But, having said all that, my favorite trips are 400-500 mile days with plenty of time to stop and look at anything that looks interesting along the route.

Since my last post on this thread we've rode the VTX to Cincinnati Ohio from Lenoir City. We stayed overnight and returned home the next day after visiting the Creation Museum. We've also rode to Atlanta and back from Knoxville.

I used to ride either my '86 GSXR 750 or my '91 GSXR 1100 from Ashland,OH to Daytona/West Palm Beach,FL and back quite often. OH to WPB is 1150 miles one way ...One day down, stay for a week, one day back ...I've done this trip 7 times ...
From north of Philly(Bucks Co.) to Daytona and back 3 times ....1000mi each way ...
And rode it from Philly to OH, back to Philly several times. 500mi each way....
And Millington,TN to OH and back several times .....This trip is 650 mi each way ....
I rode my Busa from OH to Philly and back 2 times also .....This trip is a piece of cake on a Busa ....

SO, I guess that would be around 1350-1400 miles in one day ....Ashland,OH to WPB, then back up to Daytona, all in one day .....on my '86 GSXR 750 .... :happyrider

I still to this day, do not have a problem riding my GSXR 500+ miles in a day .....
I PITY THE FOOL, THAT DONT RIDE OLDSCHOOL

When on trips I've put in lots of 500 to 750 days.  When I ride to N.O. I do it in one day and that's 636 from my door to Mom's door.  Almost 750 when I go to Baton Rouge.  Rode from Seymour to Keystone, SD in 2012, 1700 miles and did it in 2 1/2 days with stops in several places to visit Indian School and take pics.  All on Valkyrie.  Did 3700 miles in 8 days sight seeing.  That's one great thing about the Valkyrie is doing long hauls it is comfortable.

Mine was roughly 450 miles. Did that on my 1978 GS1000. The longest in terms of time was probably the 400 mile ride in a storm. Took me about 12 hours to go 400 miles.

Oklahoma City to Dickson, TN.. was supposed to stay the night in Memphis but the 30th anniversary of the passing of Elvis shut me out.  640 miles.. 105 degrees that day.. like 10 hours of riding with a blow dryer on high pointed in your face.  (Actually longer as I stopped to eat and watched the transformers movie out at the time.

Other notable treks.. Daytona in 1999 and Florida a couple times.

Love to go again. Getting used to the VTX for longer treks each time.

I did from Mayport Naval Station to Conroe Texas on a V-65 Magna in just under 11 hrs. back when they first came out. Lot younger and less traffic. Lately here, Columbia Tn., to Eureka Springs, Pensacola Beach or Kingsbay GA. have been my best, two up nowdays. It wears my wife more than me.

I have done many around 500 day trips on different bikes, The worse Day trip I have ever done was on my moms EX500 when my bike was down. The bike runs great but not much of a all day machine with my height though.
Love riding and driving anything with 2 wheels up to 18 wheels or sometimes more.
