      600km on a camping trip!

        1000km in one day, from Rottedam(NL) home to Tønsberg in Norway.

        And really it was not bad. I've gotten used to riding the Kat and I really like taking long trips on it.

          Buffalo to New York, about 8hrs or so - 400miles on a 2002 600. Very comfortable ride.

            I was regularly doing 200-300 miles in a day when I had the Kat. On the gixxer, I think it was during the Cali Mini-Rally in march...about 400-450 miles that day.

            I'll be riding to the rally from CA to NC in July on it! 2600 miles!!! Each way!!!

                  About 500 miles.

                    Made 900 mile roundtrip in two days from just east of New Mexico to San Marcos, the other side of home and was ready for more.

                      from Calgary to Port Hardy and back - 1,500kms each way
                      took a week ('cause i was there for a wedding and visiting family and stuff), but did each way two days each

                      .. one month after getting my license, by myself lol - got my first ride in hail and rain and sleet on that trip. fun stuff!
                      the kat may be the gixxer's retarded cousin, but she's a hefty broad... and i do loves me some girth between my thighs.

                        No ironman trips under my belt yet.

                        Only hit about 700 miles in a daytrip thus far, down through NC on the back roads, just for the hell of it. I easily put 200+ miles under the wheels pretty much every weekend that's rideable though. Doesn't hurt having a couple pretty pillions that love riding *grin*

                        Driven back and forth between San Francisco, CA and Virginia Beach, VA without stops a few times in a car. I think I'd like to try that on a motorcycle.

                          I rode it to walgreens around the corner once. IT's like a block away. I really just prefer to have it parked in my garage to look at it. I like to refer to it as garage art.

                          Honestly just a couple hundred miles.

                            From Phoenix AZ to Los Angeles, CA (400 miles), then all around Southern California the next day (~200 miles), then home to Phoenix the next day (another 400 miles). All on my pre 600.

                              Around 1,000 miles the first day, 695 miles the second day, nothing notable third-fifth day (hanging about my destination, little riding in that area), and then the same distances home again... If I were younger or foolisher, I could easily have done that trip in a single day each way, but I gave up on that a couple decades ago when I fell asleep at the helm of a bike (for 17 miles -- woke up when it started running over the rumble strips or cats-eyes in the road). I regularly do about 680 miles each way in a single-shot to the KR Rally & home again every year...

                              I've done 2200 miles in the saddle at a single stretch once, but that was back when I was in my teens (and on a Honda 450).
