My husband and I try to get in one good 2 week ride every summer. Last year we did 5700km (3500 miles) out to Vancouver and down the Washington/Oregon coast to Eureka, California and then back up through central Oregon, Washington and Idaho into Alberta.

I've done 500kms in a day by myself. Just love to ride! :lol:

My longest ride was 325 miles in one day. Rode over to bike week in Daytona for the day and back. It was about 160 something miles each way. I ride 1995 Honda Shadow 1100. I did great!
Riding over 2 years now and loving it!

Your ride would have been a long day. Must have been very satisfying.

My longest ride (and also done solo) was a recent trip I took to my parents house. I live in San Diego and they live about 357 miles (one way) in Cambria, CA. Went up one day and came back the next. . .it was a great confidence booster for me and a beautiful ride up and back, especially once I got to the coast in Santa Barbara!

Longest trip in miles/day = 527 from Death Valley to home in one day

Longest trip in days = 7 days, 1500 miles in Europe this past summer with my daughter on the back... the Alps are... pretty incredible! :)

Last summer my brother, his girlfriend, my boyfriend and myself drove from Hamilton, Ontario to Sturgis, SD for Bikeweek. We had a great time. Hope to do it again next year for the 69th.

Longest trip = 8,100 miles on a camping trip following the Rockies north. Phoenix to the Yukon, then along the Coast highway (U.S.) on the way back home. Spent 4 weeks on the road.

Longest day = Tie. In '89 I did a one day run from San Franscisco to Phoenix, about 740 (something) mi. This summer I did one from Tremonton, UT to Phoenix, 740(something) miles.
