My friend and I logged in 508 miles in one day. Him on his PX150, and me on my P200. We would have gotten many more miles in, but he got hit my a old lady in an SUV...then a block later she hit me as well. It took quite a while for the police to straighten that one up.

About 420 miles from Belfast in Ireland to weybridge outside London. It was in November and at night. I just settled down behind a large truck and sang to myself between fuel stops. Ferry to Stranraer in Scotland to start the journey too. I stayed in weybridge one day then completed the journey To Ghent in Belgium. PX200 was the scooter.

Personal best is 673 miles (odometer corrected) in 22 hours and 50 minutes. Looped Lake Erie on my 7whp Kymco K-Pipe back in June of 2017. Lots of wind, a 65 mile fuel range and no route plan didn't help much. Did it again in June 2018 with the same bike; didn't learn much from the first time, but the ride was somehow easier the second time around.

Rode a 520 mile day in September 2017 on my Majesty 400 and it felt like a walk in the park. That was the last day of a six-day, 2200 mile tour with a friend who had completed a SS1000 on a Buddy 150.

Been considering attempting an SS1000, but I need to figure out what is the least amount of bike I would need to complete one. The Majesty would feel like cheating, but an unofficial warm-up run couldn't hurt...

When this thread started, the furthest I had ridden in one day was 82 miles. Now I stand at 242 in a single stretch. Progress.

Or

I'm attempting to bring the 1000 miles in less than 17 hours thing when I can.

Still not a bad go.

450 miles in a day can be a chore.

I know what you mean. San Antonio's no picnic either.

Traffic's not as bad, but the drivers are just as stupid.

On the way back, we were going to visit the Indian reservation and while turning in, dad lost the front in some gravel. We had to visit a clinic to get patched up. The towel we used at the scene was quite bloody. Dad said, "Throw that away. Don't let mom see it."
