400-500 miles in a day, times 3 or 4 in a row.. I hate interstates tho so those are all backroads.

Who wants to go to Arkansas?

Actually I don't know if I trust anyone enough to go riding with again, and riding by yourself kinda boring. Anyway, I'm still around, doing a lot of mountain biking now

The hard part to swallow was these were my best friends that I trusted and rode many thousand miles with all over Texas and Arkansas. I came down with food poison the night we got to Eureka Springs and didn't ride the first day, in bed all day. Wasn't gonna ride but did that day and thats why I was in the back. Learned a good lesson that day. Even the people you are positive are your best friends will deny responsibility in their actions. There were witnesses to the whole thing, and I definitely know exactly what happened, but to this day will tell you they didn't stop in the road. Lost a lot of respect for all involved, but being the swell guy I am, I still tolerate their presence. Totalled my bike, helmet, jacket, gloves, pants, boots but walked away.......Live and learn

I've had a few SS bikes, the RC was the most miserable, but it was a built to win races and they are awesome bikes. One of the few that I'd like to have back in the garage.

Surprised no one has mentioned Nick Sanders:
Round the world in 2005 on an R1 in 19 days and 4 hours. I wonder what comfort mods he has on it.

From vidor to reno nv. Feb of 2006. Riding an 05 gsxr 1000 Made it to el paso the first night. It raied and hailed for about 4 hours on me on the other side of san antonio. After i slept a few hours i drove to mesa az. I only stopped to see a friend i had not seen in years. From there i went to vegas and saw some more friends. Then onto reno. I did get a ticket in the middle of nevada for 95 in a 65. I was excited he didnt get me at 120 which is what i had been doing for a cpl hours. If i remember right it was around 33 or 34 hours. I will post some pics when i get home from work.

Chicago to Daytona Beach on a CBR600f2 for bike week. Took 3 days to get there, and was so miserable by the time we got there we didn't have much fun. Rented a U-Haul and strapped the bikes down for the drive back.

Goes down as one of the stupidest things I ever have done.

I thought you had a Kawasaki 1400 that went down and you had to replace it. I might have misunderstood.

600 miles round trip--and was sore for a few days. Couldn't shave the next day as the smile was still on my face. I did it because a few of my buddies said I wouldn't do it and I have no regrets except for all the bugs that stuck to the front of the bike. It took several washings to get all of them off.

I've done a 600 mile day a few times, not too bad, just my hand going numb.

Got called back to my boat while on leave. Houston to Charleston, South Carolina. It was about 1200 miles. I left sometime in the afternoon and made muster the next morning 8am. Rode straight through only stopping for gas, otherwise I wouldn't have made it on time. This was on a 95 ZX-6R.

any time you plan on being in Humble give me a shout. I will let you sit on it. Riding it is a different story.

Not to mention it will destroy and smaller sport bike on the road.
I would disagree with the councours statement. I wouldn't say it is the best. I looked at them, the heat they blow on you in traffic was a big negative for me.

I finally sat on one this last weekend. Feels sportier than what I have and it has 65 more hp. Needless to say I want one but mine is paid for and I don't want a loan.

Yea, I don't ride with other people unless it is my family. Only one or two other people I trust and they don't have bikes anymore. Sorry to hear about your misfortune. Riding alone really isn't that bad once you get used to it. Can be quite refreshing.

Two week summer trip in 1993 on my 93 Bandit 400. 7k RPM's at 70. St. Louis to Denver to Dallas to Austin to New Orleans to St. Louis. Maybe 3500 miles. I was 22 and didn't really know what uncomfortable meant, though in two weeks I learned that tee shirts don't qualify as riding gear in Colorado after dark, and that rain really can hurt. I slept a few nights at rest stops cuddled up to the motor of the bike to keep warm. All this with no gloves, no boots, no jacket, and a backpack of jeans, t shirts, swim trunks, and underwear. Those were the days...having too much adventure to know how stupid I was. I think I did it all on like $150 bucks.

Hmm, you total your bike on a downhill blind corner where you ditch to avoid motor vehicles stopped in the roadway. Pls re-assess your riding skills and stop blaming others....before you get back on two wheels.
