if you get pulled over once i guess thats it you can take your time after that
Still curious about your basic math skills...3000 miles over 48 hours means you need to average 62.5 mph including all stops.

So lets say you only stop for gas/piss breaks and don't sleep or eat (except maybe while riding here and there in the straight sections) and that you can get 150 miles on a tank of gas - that means you'll be stopping 20 times. Even if each of those stops is only 10 minutes on average, that means you're losing over 3 hours of riding time throughout the two days.

So, for the sake of argument, we'll round down to exactly 3 hours and say you get 45 total hours of riding in a 48 hour period (obviously not a big deal - no problem at all, really)...you only need to average 67mph for those 45 hours which is completely doable even with road construction and traffic and whatnot...so it's really no big deal - you've got this buddy

It took me roughly 45 hours of driving time to get from Ontario, CA to Woodcliff Lake, NJ. And that's not counting time spent sleeping, or hanging out with friends and family along the way. That was in a Tacoma, with no cruise control, so slightly more comfortable than a sport bike.


If you want the breakdown on fuel management systems, take some time to read this thread.

I think it's possible, my father who drove in a semi-truck nonstop made it to New York in two nights. Didn't sleep a wink but still made it. However, the fuel tanks on that bad boy can hold a combined amount of 300 gallons.

good point, english is my second language
that 1500 miles seems nearly impossible but not totally. i think theres a small chance it can be done. i think the biggest obstacle would be the toll on your body. if you could get in the best shape then it might be worth a shot. however if not two days then i'm guessing three days is possible

basic math , 1500mi. a day . 115mph.avg. 120mi. per refil. 13 gas stops . 10min.ea. eat bars while filling gas. after first 1500mi. sleep at night for 5 hours do another 1500mi. the next day , have dinner in california. i think the toughest thing would be the toll on your body unless you were in the best shape. this was just a question but now i'd like to try it.
in cars is very different than doing it on a bike. i think you can do alot more in a car than on a bike but i think theres a small chance this is possible

Have you seen endurance riders. They train for it and even they struggle with mental and physical overload.
I honestly believe what you are talking about doing is not only stupid but extremely dangerous as well.
