What's your furthest ride?

Has to be a bike only, no trailering your bike.

Furthest for me was about 1,100 miles from Galveston to Mobil, Alabama and back. I'll be taking that trip again this weekend on the 636.

2500+ miles from Houston to deals gap, skyway, blue ridge and back on Labor Day weekend 12 years ago this September. And many, many trips all over Texas. I rode religiously every Sunday and typically hit 500 miles every Sunday. I was going through tires every month. All on a CBR900rr and a GSXR1000. I put 26,000 on the GSXR in 6 months. The Cush drive went at 30k miles then about 35k the motor went. Got a new motor and rode it some more until I was injured. I think it had something like 65k on it in 3 years and I had other bikes I rode too.

To Brenham from Clear Lake. I won't ride any further away from home base without a trailer in case someone goes down. Case in point, last time riding in Austin, two people went down. If we had all ridden from Houston, they woulda been .

I rode 950 miles on a 1980 CX500D from Birmingham, AL to South Holston Lake, Va and back. Left at 5am and returned home at 10pm. Beat to death but happy. Usually do 400-500 every Sunday.

My 2 longest trips were Metairie, Louisiana to Los Angeles, California and back and Jefferson, Louisiana to Banff Canada.and back.
The L.A. trip I made in 1978 on a '75 CB400F. I was 16 years old, my parents were not happy.
The Banff ride I made in 1992 on a '90 FZR1000.
Both trips took 5 days one way. The L.A. trip was just under 2000 miles iirc and the Banff trip was a tad over 2500 miles. Good times!

Longest ride in one day? Tallahassee, FL to Houston, TX. 742 miles and all boring interstate on a screaming 5 speed evo. It was not enjoyable, but it's not the first time. 600 mile day rides are routine for me.
