Actual miles traveled were just under 1100 miles in 1995 on a 1992 Honda 250 Nighthawk. Strapped my rucksack to the tank, laid on it, kicked feet back and filled up every 200-250 miles. Peed, ate a honeybun and drank a Mt Dew. Signed out at 0030 Hrs Central from Ft Hood, Tx... arrived in the north end of Berrien County, GA to my in-law's house at just after 2300 eastern. Butt was numb. Feet were numb. Neck was sore.
The arrival would have been a little more inviting had my wife been properly informed.
They let me leave work at 1300 so I could sleep, knowing I was leaving out just after midnite when I could sign out. Wife called my motorpool at 1500.... so she assumed I left then, forgetting that I could not sign out on leave until midnite. When I called her from Tallahassee, she was livid thinking I had left 12 hrs sooner than I actually had. LOL... ah, the days of smartphones, GPS tracking and bluetooth headsets had not yet arrived back then. The couch was comfortable enough, though.
Since then, my longest ride in a day was 330 miles just a couple of months ago.
