How many miles do you have on your current bike? How many miles have you logged since you've been riding bikes?

My 2000 Katana, now has 13800 miles on it since Feb. 28, 2000. I have approx. 75,000 miles on motorcycles, since 1981, and that includes 8 years off from riding.

I have 3400 on the RC 51 and have put in about 30000 miles total since I bought my first bike in April '96. I don't count the miles on the QA 50 at age 7.

My 929 has 11,700 kms on it. How many since I started riding? Does that include off-road mileage? Geez, I would guess 200,000 kms, at least.

I've put over 17,000 miles on the R6 since I got it in Dec '99. My EX has around 49,000 and my CB250 had a sh+t load on it. Plenty more to come!

I just have a little over 1,000 miles on my ZR750F2, but then I only bought it one month ago. As to totals, this year I have put on 4 to 5,000 on three different bikes and has to be close to 10,000 over the past couple of years that I came back to riding. Can't remember way back before that, but there were quite a few...

I have about 4000 miles on my current bike. I have been riding on the street since 1991 when I turned 16. Since then I have put about 60,000 miles on my bikes. Most of those miles came in between 1991 and 1994 when my bike was my only source of transportation.

I have 8,900 (and change) on the Kat. Even though it's a 97, I bought it new (waaay leftover) in Apr 99, so 8,900 miles in 14 months. Lessee here, started riding when i was 16, that was 16 years ago. Put about 2,000 miles on my Honda CM450 (450 Nighthawk for you youngin's!) before the lady in the Chevette made the left in front of me. Took about a year off (no job to buy new bike!) Then bought a Suzy GS750L third hand and put about 15,000 miles on it between various lowsides and the infamous run-in w/the parked car. Took another 13 years off. (The last wreck scared the bejeezus out of me. Not cool skidding across the street on your stomach and missing being run over by a tow truck by about 5 feet) Then I bought the Katana. So, about 28,000 miles in 16 years, on and off.
