At your age, hell yeah, and I did that often. At my present age, more days with fewer miles would be added. Bon Voyage!

Sounds like fun. That means you'll have to average 500 miles a day, which can be a little rough at any age. The wife and I just got back from our very first long ride ourselves, only we stretched it out over 6 days. 300 miles a day on the scoot was easier on our bodies and the bikes. It was a blast. We are already planning our next long ride.

Oh yeah. That certificate and $2.50 will buy you a cup of coffee anywhere. So glad I have nothing to prove to anyone, especially myself. But if doing super long days in the saddle are your thing, more power to you, as they said to the guy in the electric chair.
