The length of stretch you're able to do at a time will be a factor of two things, your endurance and your bike's range. If I'm on a long, multi-day Iron Butt, I'll schedule my stops on average about 110 miles apart. If it were a single-day SS1000, I'd stretch that out closer to 150. However, on my most recent 48-10 I found that sometimes I had a hard time getting to 150 miles on a tank. This surprised me. I didn't expect such poor mileage and I had to stop a bit earlier than planned sometimes. This was partly a factor of faster than anticipated speeds, strong headwinds, and being loaded with gear and carrying a passenger.
