    Not unheard of. There was a guy on a blackbird (same class as busa) that just road 10,500 miles in 7 days.

    7-14-07...1519 miles
    7-15-07...1510 miles
    7-16-07...1521 miles
    7-17-07...1515 miles
    7-18-07...1526 miles
    7-19-07...1518 miles
    7-20-07...1527 miles

    Then there's that guy on the Kaw boards who was asking about what to do for his 60K miles check up for his ZX10R.

    Oh and lets not forget the guy who did a cross world ride on his R1

    16 straight hours at 100+mph ? Don't interpret this as me attacking you, but I don't believe it. I want more proof or evidence.

    Doing the trip is surely possible, but damn... you need an iron ass. Speaking of, 250s are commonsights in the Iron Butt Rallies.

    I think I get the idea of the BBG .. he has to ride at least 1500 documented miles everyday for 7 days ?

    Sounds like a haezing.

    He was saying that his hands were raw and his mind was playing tricks. I dunno man, without national coverage or some sort of award, forget that.

    The guy touring the world though, that is cool as hell. Not a great choice for a bike to do it, but if he can find paved roads all the power to him. That's why they make Supermotards and enduros. ("Enduro") Lots of people rack up insane mileage on cross-continental trips on bikes like the Aprilia Pegasus or the BMW K100s or the like.

    That said, I totally want a Blackbird.

    I believe he did it on a R1 because it was an R1.

    =)

    mad props!

    btw

    we'll see.

    I think it's like doing the worlds large cheese cake, It doesn't really get coverage but people do it just because they have a self set goal to do it.

    Would I do something like that? hellllll no, I'd rather set the record for the most laps set around a race track in the shortest time possible. That's my kind of record!

    Screw highways.
