There is a difference between riding 7-8 hours a day for a week long tour, or even a month long tour, than to do so EVERY day of the year to reach some insane mileage total like 20k or 30k miles in a year, which is where this thread started to go off the rails with your manifesto.

For an off the grid guy who doesn't need electricity, you sure do spend a lot of time on the internet.
