Long rides.... In 1977, I rode about 1238 miles from Altus OK, a small town in the southwest corner of OK to West Hollywood CA in two days and then repeated that distance on the return trip two days later. Memory is a little fuzzy but I think my first stop was in Holbrook AZ on day one which clocks in at a distance of ~667 miles according to the great & powerful Google. It is my longest ride to date and I'm certain that I would never do it again today! But then, I was in my early '20's, in my first enlistment, riding a new bone stock Honda 750 and, of course, there was a girl waiting for me in CA.
