891 is my furthest one day trip to date, but I'll think nothing of 300 - 400 per day just scewing around one the weekend.

Man - just another 22 miles and you would have qualified for an iron-butt award!

So with at least 3 fuel stops (avg of 40mpg) lets say they're 10 minutes each. and if you include a couple of meals...

You were at (or really close to) triple digits the whole time..

400 miles isn't that many... this poll should have gone higher.

Ya know what... you're right, my math was off... it must've been closer to 9 hours in all. I'm pretty sure we averaged close to 70 the whole time though. (when riding, not stopped). Yes.... I'll eat some crow

On long trips I usually do around 400 miles per day, but on our Sturgis trip we are going to average 550 miles per day, the last day will be 680.
