I consider the wife and I to be the king and queen of slack-ass touring, no 6-800mi days for us, we plan for a max of no more than 400mi/day. IMO it's safer, it's more fun, and gives you the opportunity to stop and take in the sites here and there. Even at 400mi/day you still have to average 50mph for 8hrs, which can be tough to do.
We're making and exception for the first day of our trip to SWIII, gonna do about 550mi that day which will make the next 3 days more leisurely.
We're toughening up for the trip, did a 250mi day last weekend, did 240 this Friday, and another 230 Saturday, but even at that 550mi is gonna be a stretch for us depending on the weather.
