Re: I've been pointing this out for years.
I do 1000 miles in a DAY two or four times per month (wife co-driver, me doing most or all of the driving). I've done 1000 miles on a bike in a day many times. The wife has joined me on her bike to do the same several times (matching R1150GSs). Our longest was a ~2,300 mile trip from Sonoma, CA to Tucson, AZ and back. In 48 hours. Some of us don't live in a 30x30km box.
