Almost embarrassed to post these paltry figures:

71,xxx miles on the 2005
6,5xx miles on the first 2014 (totaled on a bad day in Colorado)
62,xxx miles and counting on the current 2014

So many things to say about this!

Do you have a job?
Is this KM?
Typo?
Lying?
LOL

Really though, this is spectacular. Truly amazing. Tony, you are exceptional. There has to be a world record in there somewhere.

On the 2014 I've only had it since September 27. Picked it up with 7566 showing now at 14,100 so 6534 that are mine.

On the now deceased 2007 I managed 118356 before it's untimely demise.

On the 2006 my coworker owns and I bike sat most of last year about 1100.

Planning Hoping to get about 20k miles next year, which will put the 2015 over 100k miles.

She's as steady as a mule, but as quick as a Kentucky Derby thoroughbred.

I do about 3-4 long trips(multi-day) a year and do some kind of ride most weekends. It works out to about 10k a year.

About 95% on the FJR. Once in awhile I ride the Valkyrie or my old cruiser.

I need to actually keep up with my miles. I never think to record the mileage at the first of the year.

Pretty lazy about motorcycle record keeping. I change the oil every time a bike hits a 5k interval. Change the rear end fluid every 10k. Works for me.

I don't really worry about the miles. I just want to do more long trips!!!!

I did an Iron Butt Ride called the “100k Club”
It is a ride where you must ride 100k in documented miles
I chose to ride 100k inside of certs. I rode 67 BBGs for the year and rode the “longest month” (Over 32k in July) My
‘08 had issues and I lost the whole month of August, so I acquired the ‘09 & the ‘18 to finish out the year.
