What's the farthest you've gone in 1 day, round trip?

The who, what, when, where, why of the ride.

Solo from Mundelein to downtown chicago. Took the highway down ate at Pizzaria Due on Wabash and Ontario(I think that's right), watched part of the Sox game while there, then took Lake Shore Dr. and Sherridan road back to Lake Cook Rd. and then home. Did it last month, nothing special, just wanted some good pizza for lunch. 85ish miles

22 hours straight. From Ft. Hood Texas to Chicago IL. IN 1992. Got out of the service and rode my FZ 600 to whole way. Anyone who has seen or owned a FZ 600 knows there is not alot of seat to sit on.

Mines around 400 miles from Carbondale, IL to Oxford, OH. Took about 6 hours because we took a lot of time at gas stations and it was barely 50 degrees out.

within 24 hours...i rode to putnam and back..that was long

thought at first it was an hour away from indiana border...not indianapolis haha. Still worth it to ride the intro on the track, gave a taste of the fun of track days. And it was on no license, def not smart

anyone know the #s on how far that is?

Probably around 300 miles. It was on a Billyboy ride a couple of years ago. I'll break my personal record on the F4T in two weeks. I'll definately have a bottle of Advil along with me.

Dude....another 50 miles, and you have a un-official iron butt! No one cares about the freaking paperwork, with the goofy plate holder 1021 miles in 21 hours on a '94 FZR600R...don't be impressed...Vivid did the same mileage on a 954 with a freaking stock saddle...talk about an iron butt Kaos968 same mileage, on a 96 RF600

I've done several 3-tank day trips to nowhere in particular. For example, Chicago to Plainfield, to Morris, to Sycamore, to Lombard, back home, with no stops except for gas and water. I guess that works out to about 330 miles.
