    My record is 736 miles.

    I needed to make a run to Mississippi last Saturday (approx. 365 miles, on way). I got my business done and decided to head back to the house. The last 100 miles was miserable. I do not plan to break my personal record. I found out that my backside is not made of iron!!!

    Lets just see how many you all have traveled on a motorcycle.

    I did 630 miles from Birmingham AL to Tulsa in the rain. Then for the Harley 105 I did Milwaukee to Tulsa which is 770 miles. those are my two longest on the motorcycle. I tried an IronButt last year, unfortunatly interrupted by a blown rear tire on my Stepdad's scooter. He came out alright but man that was a bad day.

    I did 520 miles on a sportster about 5 years ago. Miserable!
    The most I have done on my Ultra is 490 in one shot. I do plan on the 1000 in 24 this year going to Sturgis, and have a practice run set up that will give me just under 800 for late may. We'll see how it goes :)
