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?

Over here in New Zealand I just completed a 920km round trip from Auckland to Havelock North and back to Auckland in two days. The purpose of the trip was to attend a family wedding so my wife, being a really encouraging type suggested I rode while she and the kids followed behind in the car.

This is the longest trip I've ridden on the CBR250 and I have the say the bike was faultless when combining key attributes of ride comfort, handling and fuel economy. Sure there are more expensive bikes built with sophisticated suspension set ups for longer distance touring but this bike performed way beyond my expectations.

If motorcycle touring is anything like this then I'm hooked and want to do more of it in the years ahead (I'm 46 so I think there's a lot left in the tank...)

I've included a few pics which include 1) right-turn in Cambridge, 2) approach to Tokoroa, 3) stop-off at Lake Taupo, 4) desolate Taupo to Napier road, 5) pool complex on the beach front in Napier and 6) me and the boys :)

Edit: pics now uploaded.
