My long trips would be the Hyd- Chn and Chn - Porkulam (Kerala), both slightly above 700 kms. During the day I cruise just above 100, but at nights, this drops to 50-60 mainly due to the dazzle from the highbeam.

My longest SOLO trip has been a 'non-stop' 1200+ Kms, Mumbai-Goa-Mumbai... A little over 20 hours to cover the entire trip. 1 hour of meal break and a power nap. :-)

Did a solo Chennai-Bangalore-Mysore-Bangalore-Chennai 1100 Kms drive. It was one heck of a drive. I recommend a solo drive once in a while to Bhpians who haven't experienced it yet. Its totally your world your machine. Awesome

Kozhikode-Mysore-Bangalore-Chennai non-stop (with an exception for re-fuel) and back all the way, several times (could be a hundred trips or more already) starting from 2006 till now out of which a few times with family but rest all Solo. Round trip around 1,500 Kms excluding the city run at the destination. Done in my Octavia and Yeti.

Kozhikode-Mysore-Bangalore-Hyderabad-Chennai-Pondicherry-Chennai-Bangalore-Mysore-Kozhikode with night stop over at Bangalore, Hyderabad & Chennai. Solo. Round trip around 3K Kms. In the Beemer.

All these rides prove not-enough when I finally reach back home. The moment you park the car in the garage, it feels like, damn the ride is over for now.

I've been consistently doing about max 500 to 600 KM continuous drive at a stretch.
The longest being about 1050 KM from Bangalore to Shirdi with an overnight stay at Kolhapur.

A word of caution to keep in mind while doing long distances. Keeping the knees in the same position for continuous hours at a stretch can result in blood clots (deep vein thrombosis) from forming in the veins around the knees and is a real risk. It is always better to get out of the vehicle and stretch your legs every 2 hours atleast.

Default Re: SOLO LONG DRIVES - Maximum distance traveled

Longest solo drive has to be a 1178 km (360 mile) round trip from Pleasant Hill, CA to Los Angeles in the US in 2007. Special cos it was my first drive in a Mercedes Benz.

In India my longest solo drive has been from my hometown (Tiruvalla, Kerala) to Yercaud, TN. A round trip distance of around 900 km.

Looking at the data, manufacturers should get some long termers tested by us Bhpians....
Drive on,
Shibu.

My longest solo was to see Dr. Abdul Kalam. When i was doing my graduation was when India's first nuclear test was done in Pokhran. Feeling so proud, travelled from BITS Pilani to Pokhran via bikaner (~500 kms). Since i was already at Pokhran and the patriotic fervour still running high went ahead to Longewala (another 250 kms). The whole roundtrip was close to 1400kms. But worth every km.
