WHAT IS YOUR LONGEST RIDE??????

When I was 19 I lived in Seattle. I am a third gen. biker. Mom, dad, grandma, every body rides in my family.
Anyway, I was in college and burning out. I decided to take a year off of school and ride the country. I packed up my then new '92 model ZX7 and rode through 40 (yes 40) states and rode over 30,000 miles in 11 months. There was not many places that I did not go. I rode around to alot of rallies. Met tons of folks and had the time of my life. Too many stories about that trip to tell here.

Anybody have any long trips like that?

Re: WHAT IS YOUR LONGEST RIDE??????

My longest day trip is 520 or so miles in 1 day... but I hardly ride on the street anymore. I put 11k on the F4i last year but only around 1500 this year.

Re: WHAT IS YOUR LONGEST RIDE??????

it's amazing how just 300 miles can take you all day long to travel ,,

esp. on a bike travelling at the speeds the we travel at.

Re: WHAT IS YOUR LONGEST RIDE??????

Godsuki: WOW...That's impressive man...!!!!!

Have you read the trip journals of the guy at http://www.pashnit.com...?? My favorite is "6000 miles in 8 days" http://www.pashnit.com/8days/8days1.htm

Wish I can do that kind of riding.....


Well..if this counts.....Galveston via Freeport. aprox. 130 miles one way. On another occasion the back roads all the way to LaGrange aprox. 300 miles round trip...Sounds like a joke after your rides and the pashnit.com guy..... :eh: :eh: :eh:

Nowadays, just street riding, commuting to the office, 44 miles round trip.

I did it on my 2001 F4i... if I had a Corbin seat I would have been fine, but my stock seat gave me some hotspots after around 350 miles or so. Like I said, I hardly ride street anymore, but when I did I generally ran around 250 - 300 miles each trip. I tried to do a few a month like that plus the occasional commute to work. I've done like 2 other 400+ days.

I plan on getting back into street riding once the summer ends, I miss it and I've found a few ride routes that I really want to check out up here near Kingwood. I want to go on one of those trips where I just take off with a full tank of gas and a change of clothes, then get lost and have to find my way back in a few days. Some day I'll get to do that ride but right now with a new house, puppy, wife and lots of work, I just don't have the time.

Re: WHAT IS YOUR LONGEST RIDE??????

Yeah I love riding in the hill country. My wife and I went there in May and rode about 800 miles over 3 days. I think we went through every city in the hill country. It's not quite as fun as riding in the Smokeys or the Cascades in Washington, or even the Sierras in Cal., Nevada, but they'll do for here.
A friend and I went to deals gap (the Dragon) a year ago. Now that is riding!!!! I grew up in those mountains. You just haven't rode until you have been there. I'm planning another trip there this year.
