100 miles round trip for me.  I run US 52 along the Ohio River up river of Cincinnati.  Lots of cruisers run the route on weekend.  I run it every weekday.

Depends on the weather and which way I go. Could be 15 minutes could be 60 minutes love it.

Round trip?   20 ft to 20 miles.  Some days work from home - some days in Client's offices downtown.

142 Round Trip almost all slab  :(.  Only five or six times a month though which allows time for many more miles West (all curves  :D)
"...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag. We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

64 miles round trip on the Connie from April to Thanksgiving. (or from after the salt is off and before it is on the roads)  A few more months would be nice but I settle for the snowmobile trail running by my house.

6 miles RT   :( 

Can only take the bike on some days as need the truck most of the time. And with that short of distance, hard to even gearing up to ride to work some days.

I may have the winning short commute of only 3 miles.  Yeah, I need a 700lbs bike for that.   ;D Often, I don't even get her out of 2nd gear.

96 miles Akron to the East side of Cleveland.  The primary reason I ordered a C-14, the vrod offers little wind protection as well as a 3.1 gal tank and the spyders offer little wind protection as well.

Before I had the connie (or any bike, for that matter), I used to ride about 90-100 miles from Ravenna to Wickliffe 5 days a week.  The 271/480 merge just about killed me after 1 year of commuting :o But after a move it's now about 75-80 miles from Geneva to Wickliffe.  Maybe I'll see you around sometime Boonedawg.
