Default Maximum distance without a break

Just curious to know that how many kilometres you have driven without breaking journey. Obviously it doesn't include food, drink or loo break but it includes nap.

I have driven only 390 Kms (Delhi-Shimla) at a stretch without taking any break in my Santro. Wat bout you ppl?

Have done in excess of 500-600 KMs on numerous ocassions.

Once rode my bullet to Jammu from Delhi, dropped a friend over there, and almost immediately rode back to Delhi, that makes it 1300 KMs in less than 20 hours.

I did a 625km Bombay - Dandeli drive last September-October. Return too was the same way. No breaks except for lunch and snacks. The road was amazing except for about 20km near Dandeli, and traffic was mostly minimal. Had a great time. No tiredness. The car (Petra) surpassed itself.

I'm not sure of the exact distance, but in 1998 I rode from Delhi to Bombay on a ten-year-old Enfield Bullet in two days. I guess that'll be around 650 km per day. I stopped for a night's sleep of course, plus half a dozen chai and loo breaks.
