Yes, when I was a beginner I did a few 12 hour days after each other.

Now I'm nervous to do an 8 hour day only ride.

No heart attack, just got sleg

Good article! and I totally agree with it. Last big day I had was in Dec. 2017, Cape Town to Aliwal North 1100km on the @XRV750. Couldn't face the drone on the N1 so went N2 - R62 scenic option through the Klein Karroo. What an awesome day! Great weather all the way, fantastic roads, bum-cheeks took a punishing and bike ran hundreds. This country is beautiful with great roads and sweet scenery.
