How many have you done?

I rode 611 miles yesterday so I can have lunch with my grandmother. This is the farthest this year. What have you rode and on what type of bike. Long or short don't matter. Just post up!

Living life! Because before you know it it is over!

Vivid, Rick, Kaos, Jammin & Gasguzzler, this should be good

I think my best is like DT to Galena all over out there and back DT - Maybe 500 miles or so? - I dunno

This was a few yrs ago on my old '01 SVs

I'm considering doing an Iron Butt Rally next year.

I'm thinking about the Saddle Sore 1000, where you need to do 1000 miles in 24 hours and document it.

Wheaton to Boston is 1012 miles or there abouts.

I'll need a better seat for the SV. LOL

600 miles on the dot is the most I've done in one day when me, G2G, and Jenya did an ABC run. I did it on my R1. That's about as much mileage as I ever want to do in one day on a stock sportbike. I'd like to do an Iron Butt ride but the R1 needs some dirtbike bars and a Corbin seat first.
