Too date, my longest was from Copperas Cove to Burleson and back, approx 270. I meet a guy from the VTXOA that rode down from Oklahoma just so we could trade seats. I had an Ultimate Big Boy, which I wasn't big enough for, and he had a Mustang, which he was to big for. We had lunch and then swapped seats in the parking lot.

775 miles from Gallup NM to Irving Tx. It was a long day even if it was on a Goldwing.

Technically 2 days, but from Santa fe NM. to Sugar Land with a SHORTCUT by Roswell NM, oops, 1033, miles I think, 20+ hours. Started at 8ish in the morning and got home sometime before daylight the next day. I didn't get back on the bike for about 10 days after that. That"s when I found out my 2nd(B) trip odometer rolled over after 1000 miles

Albuquerque to Hillsoro I'm guessing is my longest at one sitting. 12 hours, 6 tanks of gas, 9 beers, and 10 trees off the beaten path.

There's, Kenny aka VTreX, that should get the award (if any offered) that was riding to the Coloradical in Denver a few years ago and went from down by Canyon Lake all the way to Denver on his wing in one sitting. Yes, nonstop. I probably wouldn't have believed it except he was using one of those GPS trip tracker thingeys to prove it. He had some back problems for several weeks before leaving on this trip and when he was asked "why didn't you stop?" his reply was "hell back hurt bad laying down or it hurt sitting up, so I sat up and rode". Yes Kenny get's the Tuff Old Bird award as far as I'm concerned.  :c :c
Just can't keep one of those old X Riders down!

My longest ride in one day was about 450 miles to the Honda Hoot. It rained about half the way.

Connie and I rode from the Rosharon house to Lake Texoma and back to Winkler, TX for a total of 507 miles.  We stopped because we wanted to visit with my parents at their house.

Of Course it's dirty. It's hard to clean when the tires keep moving.
