Mileage in itself

isn't the huge factor that it used to be (except to a dealer who uses it to knock prices down) - what's more relevant is how its been treated for those miles.

2000 miles a year is nothing for a looked after bike - even one that size.

Thanks

Yeh it's been fully serviced, and the dealer loves it every time it comes in. He said its looks as good as the day it left the show room.

I do about

7000 miles a year as a fair-weather, weekend warrior :winkie: Although I reckon the mileage will be down this year due to the crappy summer and regular rainfall...

The highest mileage on this forum will probably be from Maxie who organises all the forum meets; I think she does about 20 odd thousand a year - and that's just from going to MCN days out! :lol:

Mileage

When I was commuting I was knocking up 100 miles a day in (almost) all weathers. Great fun even in 2 inches of snow on a Friday afternoon. Scariest though was the one day when the wind was particularly strong and side on. Blowing me towards the centreline far too often for my liking. I was happy to get home that day for sure.

Mileage

I use my bike all year round , both for commuting and pleasure. I do on average 10,000 - 12,000 miles a year.

Annual mileage

I ride all year round aswell. Mileage is typically 5,000 - 18,000 miles per year on the bikes. This year it's likely to be at the lower end of that range because my work contracts are closer to my house.

10k miles a year on the Buell and another couple of thousand spread over the other bikes.
