in a day, or total?

I can't remember the Houston -> Key West, FL -> Daytona -> Houston total, but it seems like it was around 2,700 (Hyosung GV650), and about the same on my Deal's gap trip ('05 883 Sportster).

I did a couple though that were almost twice the distance. Went to Vegas with a buddy a few years back for his wedding where I met him in Shreveport, LA, we rode up to OK and took Rt. 66 to Arizona, hit Grand Canyon and Four Corners before Vegas, then headed out West through Death Valley before heading home. I believe that was around 4,500 miles, but my speedometer/odometer cable broke sometime the morning we left Shreveport. The other would be when I went to Sturgis a few years back. We left Houston headed west through Amarillo into western CO, up the Million Dollar Highway and up to the West entrance to Yellowstone (Montana), then across to Devil's Tower, Sturgis, then Mt. Rushmore and a ton of interstate through pig farms on the way back. That trip ended up somewhere around 4,500 as well. Both of those trips were on my '87 Yamaha Venture.

Longest single day was only about 750 miles though, from Sturgis headed south into somewhere in Nebraska. We would've kept going but were running head-on into a big thunderstorm.

My longest in a day was roughly 640 miles from Eureka Springs Ark. to League City. This was on my Street Glide
I did a trip to Panama City Beach 2 years ago on a softail. It was right about the same mileage as Eureka 620.... something like that...

4,367 miles in 9 days on a 1982 Kawasaki KZ750. Houston / I-10 to Malibu, CA; up the Pacific Coast Highway to San Francisco / Napa Valley / then back through Arizona / Nevada / New Mexico / Oklahoma / Texas.

Longest day was 801 miles - Houston, TX to Las Cruses, NM.

Rode with a group of 7 other motorcycles. Wonderful trip.

Air hawk for the win! I rose from big bend to houston in one day recently with an airhawk. Could have kept going if i needed to. Those things are awesome. You dont realize how much it helps until you are 300 miles in and you realize you havent felt the need to shift your around yet

If you really managed to pull that off in 16 hours then that's impressive. You would have to average over 80 mph with no stops. Two hours worth of food and gas stops puts the average needed over 90 mph.

Did not eat, drank while filling up. Kept it above 90 most of the time. Triple digits through most of AR and in NE TX.
