I think the longest leg I ever rode solo was around 600, that during a ride from Anchorage to Skagway, ferried to Birmingham and rode down through the middle of WA, OR and CA solo on my FXR. Worse part was coming down out of the the Mt. Shasta mountain range into the flatlands of Redding and 105F. Sunburned my stupid white boy arse bad in about 20 minutes. I later learned that when the temp rises above 92f, the wind chill factor inverses, much like a convection oven. I’ll leave that little tidbit here.
Planning to ride to see several cousins in So. IL next weekend, cataract surgery should be healed enough by then. About 340 each way from Cincinnati, like you, that’s a fine days ride for an old man, and I’ll probably stop and stretch a time or two.
