Longest Bobber rides?

Everyone thinks of our Bobbers as Barhoppers (which they are) but who has done a longer ride or tour. I know several here have gone touring, let's hear your story.


I have done a couple of 450 miles days including MT. Equinox in Vermont. I have done a couple of 350 mile loops just basically going no where, and I have done a couple of 2 hour rides for ...Ice cream, with my Indian rider friends!


So how about you guys?

2,834 miles in 9 days. Several 400 mile + days , and a 500 mile day in that mix.

So far behind , I think I'm in first place.

My longest ride was this last weekend, 1,000+ miles over 3 days in 3 different states. I've also done a handful of 250-300 miles rides this Summer on a day off from work. I try to plan my stops around 100 miles apart, give or take 20 miles, and that seems to be a great formula for a nice day on the road. I definitely think the Bobber's smaller tank has just the right fuel range for fuel breaks necessary about the same time my rear end is ready for a break.
