280 miles is about all I can take in a day, 80% dirt/20% street. 

Probably be easier if I could offload some of the weight on my back to my bike, but I haven't found luggage I like yet.

In the Pryor mountains of Montana, we covered probably 50 miles (this was on a quad, though). We visited a cabin that's open and free for the public to use as well as a large cave that is covered in a very thick layer of ice all year, even if it's 90º F outside.

 

I'm sure I've gotten both of my wheels off the ground a couple times, but I've only been riding my bike for a couple weeks now and I am still learning the basics.

For jumping, you got to get the MX guys in here. They tell better lies.

so damn true hahaha. I'm much more interested in the longevity of rides people have done in a day or so anyway

Pure single track, tough, tight, rocky, maybe 80.

Dual Sport, Miles 70/30 but time 30/70, 400. (I'm really just guessing)

Street 1000, 800 consecutively.

Jumps, I don't know, maybe 30 feet. I didn't stop to measure.

If you get into a phallus measuring contest, some will be bigger and some smaller. Make best use of what you have.

Longest enduro race was right around 50 miles. Five, 10 mile laps.

 

Longest jump is between 90-100 feet. Could hit a longer one though.

Used to do 80 mile desert races (2 x 40 mile loops) a few time a year. Did the 24 hours of Glen Helen with only one other guy on my team, so however many miles 12ish hours ended up being :-P lol. 

 

Jump, never measured, but long enough to have that "oh crap" moment on the descent  :jawdrop:

Length? Maybe 10 miles from point A to point B. Its a super fun trail. 2 miles street, 5 miles dirt road, 3 miles trail and stream crossings. Brings us from our hunting cabin to the hudson river.

120 mile desert race. I got the wheels off the ground over some of the bigger whoops.

A local track called me to test their new track. 4th gear 160 foot table. Did it a few times. It was long enough air time that the wind would blow you a few feet either way.

 

 

Last summer I did a 26 mile enduro on an xr50. That was a BLAST.

So something like this kgmx?

 

Well it was a tabletop... No way I would have tried it on a double.

 

It was long enough for me to tell them to knock 40 feet off of it...

Id have to agree there. No need for a 160 footer unless it's a pro track.

I'm not sure what the longest ride was.....maybe 50 miles? My biggest jump isn't much to brag about but considering I only ride trails its OK I guess. It was taken last year before I had my own bike (Had an atv :goofy: ) so I've gone a little bigger since but thats pretty much it. I would say it was 20 feet, maybe :blush:

Horrible quality, I know, but it was taken out of a video :p
