This is similar to an older post. Last November I rode to a track day in South Carolina, rode the day, and returned. That made for a 1200 mile day with the northern half of the ride temperatures in the low 30's and high 20's.
Summer before last ran to Santa Monica in two 1350 mile sittings, but that was on a Gold Wing. On the return I ran up north through Yellowstone and such which included several 1000 mile days.
Personal best (or worst ) was in the mid '80's returning from Alaska. I ran from Calgary to Pittsburgh in one sitting, 2350 miles, but that was actually closer to two days. I wouldn't do that again but 1000 miles as optimum and up to 1500 miles max. would be O.K.
I rode 150 miles today... Nothing compared to what I`ll be doing in a month or so. I`m going to school in Florida this December, and the bikes gonna be my only transportation, and I don`t really have the money to have it shipped (or really want to, for that matter). I`m estimating about 5-600 miles per day/2 days
How true. I remember riding home late one night, when I arrived I couldn't remember any of the journey. Scared me Big Time
I've recently managed to ride 100 miles in a day and had back ache afterwards. However, at the time I didn't relised that my steering bearings where mashed. Only turned up on the MOT. I thought it was me that couldn't get the bike round corners. It never occured that it might have been the bike. Since they've been fixed I can get round corners with less effort, maybe even ride further
