How many miles this year then?

Didn't do many myself - total of about 5,600 miles,  split between the old gsx650f, the new fjr1300 & the gsxr600.   Put a measly 200-odd on the old Powervalve.

Got one speeding fine, but at least didn't drop a bike this year, so can't complain.

Difficult to tell.......................

It's difficult to be accurate.  Over the year I've commuted on 7 different bikes, and used another 4 for VMCC runs and pleasure, plus three sidecar outfits for trips out with the kids, Isle of Man week etc.

 

Going by the commute being anything from 150 to 200 miles per day (depending where I need to go during the day), plus weekend running round, evenings out, holidays, club runs etc. my guess is around 50 K.

 

Oh, nearly forgot - a few hundred really wet and muddy ones on Green lanes too.

 

No speeding fines, no crashes.  Ride safe all,

 

Shad.

Started the year reasonably well -

Got about 100 miles in today anyway on the fjr,  and took the misses for the first spin in a while too.  She loves the new bike.

Despite it being a bit damp out,  still got the chance to scrape the boot on a couple of corners.    Bit of a concern actually, that... I often keep the left foot on the peg but under the gear-change.  Scraping that is a bit nasty because it hasn't got anywhere to go.

Mileage??

Similar to Black Shadow I've ridden a few different bikes this year so it's not easy to guesstimate. My daily commute has only been around 5 miles each way so that cuts the mileage down substantially. I have managed to get some track days and european tours in this year but still expect my total mileage is less than 7,000 miles.
