Longest road trip

Whats everybody's longest road trip?

I'm about to do LA to Vegas and back, then up to San Francisco. About a 1000 miles total on my 05 Brutale.

I assume gas mileage gets better on highways. Whats the average time between breaks, an hour?

I think David, greylola, has the record.

He went from California to Connecticut on an F4.

In a week.

On the Brute I took an 8 day trip from Santa Fe thru Utah and a bit of Colorado, about 2000 miles. My personal best is a 3 week tour from here to San Fran all the way up to Vancouver Island then back thru Wash., Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, etc. About 6000 miles if I recall, on an Aprilia Falco.

560miles from Las Vegas to Monterey in a day, twice. Once on Friday and then two days later on Sunday. Laguna Seca Motogp 2008. What a race!

I'd say you need a gas station every 100 miles or whatever is an inside figure for your tank range. Take a break if you're hot and tired, otherwise, gas up and keep riding. I've done 10 days on the brute taking things very slow--slow wasn't much fun. But I've also done a breezy 200-220 kph for 8-hrs straight with stops for gas and breakfast. For me, that's too intense to do on a regular basis.

I've done about 3500 km in 8 riding days on both an F4 and on a Brutale. It was a 910S Brutale though, so not as gas-hungry as the 750. The last day on the Brutale was pretty tiring, since we ran through three successive tanks on the autostrada at ~150 km/hr. My hands were numb after that. It really would have helped to have a windscreen on that day.

I've also done some pretty long trips here, but not on the MV. I did 4500 miles on my 748, but that was spread out over 2+ weeks.

Hmmm... I'm planning to do a trip to Nordkapp, Norway and back next summer in 4 days. From southern Finland my route plan gives 2918km (1813 miles). First and last days are gonna be iron butt -class performances and two easier days between by the shores of arctic sea gazing at the midnight sun.
