Did a little over 5000 miles last X-mas in 9 days. Done 1000 miles in a day before. The most I've ever done in a day on a R1 is 650.

The one thing you will really appreciate having is a throttle lock. NEP and Vista Cruz make some cheap ones that are simple to install. Get some Gold Bond powder, it's great for monkey butt. A pair of bicycle shorts under your leathers/textiles helps a lot. Be sure and take breaks whenever you start to lose concentration. You make mistakes when you stop paying attention, then things get dangerous. Get off the bike and walk arouind, heck you might want to take a 30 minute power nap at some point.
