I did 5 hours of southeastern WI county highways (and a few connecting roads).
I'm digging making routes on https://kurviger.de/en and transferring the .gpx file to my Nuvi.
There was a detour between my second and third route point.  For some reason the Nuvi kept routing me to the 3rd route point, even when I got near the 4th point.  And then past it. 
I had to exit the route and re-select / activate it.

Yesterday jumped on the LT and rode 300 miles north to Waterbury, VT
Stopped to have lunch with a friend working in Grafton and then take a swim in Warren Falls
Today rode 370 miles back hitting a couple of big name VT breweries
Of course I had to ride the AppGap, RT. 17 & Middlebury Gap, RT. 125

My brother retired recently.  His wife is still working.
He and I got together this afternoon (his body is still on second shift schedule) and went riding for a few hours (he's got a F6B, that he really likes).
We would have rode more, but he had to take their (her) dog to the groomer.

Yesterday took a ride to the Catskills.  5 hours to Oneonta for lunch then 3-1/2 hours home.  390 miles total.  Found a new fun road - 213 from Stone Ridge to Olivebridge.  My only regret is not enough time to do the usual side trips I take off 28 & 23.

Another full week of 2-wheeled commuting in the books.  Check, check.   :)

Just to work. Home is almost always the long way however.

Took my wife on a 400km ride to Manitoulin Island for lunch.  Days like that remind me why I ride.

Rode to (and from) the bank

Which I will ride at least 2 hrs home
I'll ride longer if the weather permits

Very cool...the biggest freshwater lake on an island in a freshwater lake?

I got the new-to-me BMW F800ST out this afternoon - after cobbling together a tank bag mount and hacking into the wiring for the optional Nav(GPS) to power my Nuvi.   So nice to have the GPS on switched power.
4.5 hours in unseasonable warmth - upper 80's!
A nice collage of urban roads, county highways thru the country side and some small towns and a bit on the freeway.
I'm digging the bike, but;
It's gonna take a while to get use to the low RPM engine - red line is 8,500!
It's gonna take a while for me to memorize all the dash info control sequences
