My maximum distance for a ride is 300 miles. Thats the distance from my house to the Mid Ohio Race Track. I have made this trip every year for the past 3 years. Each year its been a different bike. 1st year 86 Ninja 600, 2nd year 88 GSXR750, 3rd year 95 CBR900rr and this year it will be another new bike. See signature below .

Slightly over 600 miles, on my 600 Kat.
Rained like hell for about the last 150 miles.
I was quite miserable by the time I got home. Straight to the shower, and then to bed.

The longest trip I've been on was 7000 miles on my 86 FZ750 but that was a vacation and the pace was relaxed.The longest single day was on my 81 900F.Went from Crystal Lake Illinois to Montgomery Alabama.I think it's about 750-800 miles.Left at 3am and got in late that night.I was trashed.Stiff neck and sore butt.The bike is plenty comfortable but has no wind protection.

Most I've managed so far is @ 300 miles in a day on my 99 VFR, all done on backroads in New England. I am thinking about an Iron Butt, maybe this summer, but I want to build my endurance up first.
Then there is the Parry Sound Sportbike Rally in Ontario,Canada I'm hoping to attend.
That oughta get my daly average up.

Back in '83 I rode round trip from Charleston, SC to San Antonio, TX for a weeks vacation, on my '83 GPZ 750. The fastest part was IH 10 across LA on the 18 mile bridge mostly at top end. I made the trip twice, with the second trip across 40 and then down 35. I used to also do the 200 miler to my parents house every month on my RZ350. I did exactly 100 miles in 1 hour and had to stop for gas, then while merging back onto the highway I got a ticket for 76 in a 65.I took it with a smile and went on my way. Now I regularly do 200 miles for a day trip.

The longest one day ride I've taken was around 550 miles. A couple of friends and I rode to bike week last year from NC. Our group consisted of my 7r, a 916 Duc, and a K1200rs. (the 916 did have Heli-bars and a corbin seat, what a puss!!!) the trip down wasn't to bad, I guess because we were pretty fired up. But the trip back, that sucked!!!!!!!

Our average day of twisties is around 300 miles.

O lets see, I will refer to my trip taken back in 96 from Reno Nv to Newport Nc, no I didn't do it all in one day(not possible)but I did do regular 700 mile days during this trip heading east and my return trip home my longest day was 830 miles. I was riding a BMW K100 with a 4 gallon fuel cell attached to the rear with fuel pump and all so doing 350 miles before refuelling was common. I really didn't start to get a sore bum until about the 500 mile mark though each day, so that was good.
Now with the sportbike's I've owned in the past few years I usually do 250 to 300 miles day rides. I did do one 500 mile day ride on my 95 Duc 916 a few years back(and yes if ya must know I was dead tired and very sore all over) but I did it.

The longest ride for me,was 2yrs.ago on my 1992 Katana 600. Iwent from my home,(About 2 hours north of Seattle,Wash.) to visit a friend at Provo,Utah. It took me 17 hours,only stopping for nature calls, gas and my favorite road snax: M&Ms. I am not sure of how many miles it is tho.(By the way i'm an old fart of 47!!!)
