Default Long distance travel

I want to know peoples experiences on long distance traveling on the CBR250. What's the longest trip you taken? Was the ride comfortable? Any issues along the way?
My longest ride was a day trip along a winding road in northern Ontario. AWESOME trail.
Next summer I'm thinking of a cross Canada trip.
Any thoughts?

Go for it.

Longest in one day, 780km from Bangkok to Burma and back.

And a 3 day trip of 1,800km.

The mind felt more tired than the body.

Default Long distance riding

Just did a two-day, 900 I'm ride from Newmarket to Tobermory, on the ferry to Manitoulin, camped at Chutes provincial park, then south via Sudbury, Muskoka to home. Perfect weather (15-18C) sunny. Had the bike loaded down with new motocentric saddlebags. Bike ran beautifully even at speeds up to 120 km/h. Only complaint after two long days was the saddle. Hoping to see what those of you who have ordered a Corbin saddle think of them. Otherwise, who needs a different/bigger bike? The cbr is all I need! Spent a total of $35 on gas. Try doing that on a bigger bike

Sounds like a great trip.
How much do you weigh, and what do you guess the luggage weighed?
