Just curious to know how far everyone here has gone on their bikes.

I went from NC to PA leaving Friday and go back home last night.
Going up there I thought all was well until I hit right before Baltimore. I'm not sure what the hell was going on but I hit the worst traffic I have seen in a while. I sat there for about 30-40 minutes before I decided to very carefully white line it. The traffic went on for miles on end down I-95!

Friday I left at 2:30pm and arrived in Exton PA @ around 2am.
Left Sunday at around 1 and go back here at 10pm
Slightly over 500miles each way.

My longest trip was from Jersey to Montreal and back in 4 days. This is hardly remarkable at all.

Every other sunday or Monday I like to ride 250-300 miles in one day. That is alot of fun.

My longest trip this year was from the south coast of England up to the Scottish highlands to go mountain walking.
I didn't clock it but it's about 700 miles there (and the same back obviously !).

And a couple of years ago a few of us went down the south of France for the Bol D'or 24 hr race, then we went around the south of France and over the Alps into Italy and back up through Italy and then a nice relaxing weekend in Amsterdam. :)

My favourite rides are all day ones, tank bag and a stuff bag strapped on the back, it's what big bikes were made for. :)

Doh ! ..."How many miles have you ridden this year" ? or "What's the longest trip you've ever taken the bike on" ?

sorry mate, but they're different questions, If I'd only got a bike at the beginning of this year they might be similar, but I've had bikes for years, as have a load of people on here, so they're different. :)

I went to Florida from Kentucky this summer. A total of about 900 one way. It was a blast. Have to like your own company riding by yourself. :) Best time of my life.

I bought a bike in TN a couple of years back and rode it home (TX) around 1300 miles and did it in a day and a half, wasn't much fun though it rained half of the time.

Rode to Dallas from Austin (3 hrs. one way) this past weekend to see my fiance......I'll never do it again! My back is killing me!!!

Before that I rode to Jacksonville from Orlando when I lived in Orlando. That was 2 hrs but I was in much better shape than I currently am and my back wasn't such an issue as it is now.

Umm, only about 150 miles in a day. Luckily, I live very close to my local canyons. Where else would you want to go?
