Did you use the polar route? I found that to be the quickest and least traffic.

Quickest route, yes, but can you buy Preparation H at the North Pole?

50 miles every day on I-95 in Northern Virginia leaves me pretty tired (other traffic considering).

anywho, about two years ago I drove about 175 miles to Virginia Beach on my '97 cbr600 [RIP]... but because of the torrential downpour (and the woman on my back), it took 8 hours. We had to stop quite frequently but kept going despite warnings of flash floods. The rain didn't stop until about 5 minuted before I pulled into the hotel. At the end of the week it only took 1.5 hours to get home and my leathers still hadn't dried.

My longest day was 832 miles. I rode from somewhere'sville Ms. to Austin Tx. It was the second day of a three week sport-tour on my new '84 GPZ1100. Yes, I had a full case of monkey butt. I have friends who think it's fun to ride 1k plus every day. NOT ME!!! These days I try to keep it under 450.

I love long rides, when I lived in Seattle, I used to ride to Portland all the time and up and over the passes. When I moved from Seattle to S. Cal., I rode all the way to San Fransisco in one day (I think it was around 825 miles). I wasn't even that tired. That is why I bought a ZX9, I wanted something comfortable. I've had it since late June and have over 11,000 miles already. Long epic rides are the way to go (although short and sweet is fun sometimes too).
