The furthest I've gone in a day is about 300 miles. 150 miles each way round trip. That was a long day. I had to stop about 5 times on the way down and probably more like 7 on the way back up. Took the better part of 12 hours, I think, give or take (but that's also with eating and things). And that was "cheating" on an already fast and straight road. Had I been this side of the border I wouldn't make it nearly as far... Furthest I've gone round trip in kilometers is probably about 200 km, but that was with only 1-2 stops each way.
The highways around here are forested and twisty enough that you don't want to fall asleep, but also sweeping enough that they're boring to ride (i.e., at "lose your license" speeds with your body straight up you only lean the bike a few degrees). If you lived here your whole life it's hard to enjoy the ride on a cheap, stock, standard/sport bike, especially traveling to familiar sights. If I had the time and money or ambition for an overnight stay it would probably be more worthwhile to keep going instead of turning around, but I haven't gone that far yet. For one thing because days off are limited and I'd rather relax and drink beer than chain them together with a sore ass, but also because I don't want to leave the misses behind.
I mean the best with what I say. It doesn't always sound that way.
