I just got back from a 1030 mile trip on my 07 600rr, and let me tell you my hands and ass are killing me. I went around Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin, and then back to Nebraska. Trip lasted two days(left Saturday morning got back Sunday night).

So whats the furthest you have ridin on you 600rr?

250 miles. Stopped for gas (1x) and directions (1x). The CBR RR series are not touring bikes. ST or Goldwing are the proper tools for iron butt rides LOL!

1500 miles. I rode 800 miles first day. One day off to fix cracked oil-pan. 700 miles the third day. Wasn't bad at all. I had a 25 gallon duffel bag (guestimation... the thing is huge)on my tank and 2 backpacks but other than that I found it to be an enjoyable experience. The only issue that bothered me was the huge duffel bag was screwing with the wind flow and trying to make my helmet wobble in the wind.

Yeah if ever do it again I will definatly pick up a goldwing. We had like 12 guys that went 8 Harleys, 1 Goldwing, 2 VTX 1300, 1 Yamaha, and me. I was the only sports bike there were all asking me if I was going to make it haha. The only bad thing was one of the guys had a sportster harley and had to stop every 100 miles for gas, but it acually wasnt bad to get off and strech.

Rode my bike up north for about 130-140 miles forgot to set my trip. Only reason I didn't ride longer was because of the rain and my ears were getting sore from my headset I use. (My buds don't stay in while I ride.)

There should be some type of miles/age ratio for this. I did 625 miles in one day at age 38. That's like 1,500 miles if you're 22. I was sore.

I rode over 1300 miles over the fourth of July weekend (4 days) a couple of years ago. I think I got more broken in than the bike did. I even had to buy a new rear tire half-way through the trip.
