Two miles if I go the short way. I usually take one of the cages. The time it takes to don and doff gear is almost as long as the commute itself.

25 miles each way. I work in North Wales, not far from the Ponderosa & some of the best Biking roads in the UK. Usually go by car but in the Summer will take the bike.

My direct commute was 40 miles each way but it was typically 56 miles each way with my detour of 18miles over a tight canyon road to break up the freeway flying.

95 km round trip if I go into the office. Varies +/- 10 km if I go to a client site.

I have a 7mi round trip. It's all city streets, so rarely faster than 45mph. I honestly feel like I'm doing my 765R a disservice by commuting on it.

From my back door to my shed about 30' at the most lol, 6 years since I took a redundancy from my GOVT job and now early retirement my work now is in my shed doing what ever I like, working on my bikes, building or making things can amuse myself all day, have also built a few motors and build a Harley for a uncle all paid cash in hand, but no longer doing that as I have my own bikes to look after and one Norton I am building for my daughter, my hobby and life is now my job and loving every minute of it even now with this crisis and lock down, just wish I could take the bike out for big long run, but am doing the right thing.

16 miles round trip. No freeway. One of the few silver linings of Covid is traffic here right now is light enough to make commuting by motorcycle enjoyable. Only allowed to go to the office once a week, so it becomes the best part of that day. .

I commute 60 miles every day. Almost exactly 30 miles each way, 95% of it on highways. I work different hours every day, so I encounter many different traffic patterns. It takes me anywhere from 28-45 minutes to get there or back. I am very fortunate that I get to ride the bike all year long. I don't even own a car (my wife does though :))
