Puhlease. This is a fun group, no dis taken!
When I'm running hard and beating feet, if I don't have to piss, I just gas and leave. Even if I have to run in, I leave my helmet and one glove on.
On the third tank I'll stop a few extra minutes, eat a couple of power bars and stretch a bit. That's usually about a 10-15 minute stop.
This is usually trying to get out of Texas, thru the southern end of New Mexico, Arizona, or just trying to get somewhere.
The longer you stay in the saddle, the less time you stay at a stop the better your average speed. I've actually run about 1500 miles with an average speed of 65 mph doing just that.
