When I was living in Palo Alto, I always thought most Californian's daily home-> work-> home commute was vastly longer than most Hoosiers I knew.
But I also do know, now, several folks locally in my community, here in Indiana, who routinely commuted half way across Indiana, 75-80 miles one way, to Indianapolis and back, 5 days a week to work - - at least until the pandemic made their jobs so non-essential. So there's that .
Thinking back over the vehicles I have owned over that past 50 years, I suspect I averaged more like 25-30K miles per year, and I never thought my milage was in any way exceptional since I knew many friends who drove far more than that. But then some of the time I was also driving to and from Indiana to the left coast to go to school for a while.
I was just struck by that article above which suggested most urban drivers drive no more than 12.5 miles ~ 20Km - per day. I would use a RAD bike for that kind of travel if the weather were not inclement, or a smaller motortcycle like the Zero or even the Harley Live Wire.
On long road trips, one does not just drive 6 or 8 hours, but more like 14, 16 or more occaisionally. Sometimes, 18-> 20 when one wants to make tracks.
To cover ~1200 miles, on 2 wheels or 4, takes about 22 hours or a bit less, if one averages a mere 55 mph for the whole trip. The size of your gas tank may make a significant difference in how long you are stationary during your trip, refueling. Stopping dramatically reduces your average speed for the trip of course.
I remember when I was 19 and a good friend and I left Kansas City in his brand new 1964 Pontiac GTO, headed for Los Angeles, and we averaged 67+ mph for the whole trip incuding time for eating, fueling, peeing, sleeping, etc. Well, we didn't really stop to sleep, we slept while one of us drove....... I was younger and less prudent then.
