Question

Hey all, I may have toasted my bike, but I'm still into sportbikes. So here's another probing thread from the one and only "Brutha".

I'm wondering how often most sportbike riders (like myself) ride their babies. For me, it was an everyday thing almost. "No rain: will ride. Light rain: will get wet" was (and is) my motto.

I bought my F4 in April. Actually started riding it on the 19th of April. I wrecked it on July 13th. That's 6 days short of 3 months for all you burned-out math geniuses. My odometer read 4,699 miles when the accident occured. This works out to be over 1,500 miles per month; or over 18,000 miles per year: whichever you prefer.

So...How many miles do you all ride and what is considered a lot and what isn't? Kinda curious because most people I know don't put that many miles on their machine in 2 years, let alone 1.

Anyway, this may seem like a worthless topic; and it very well may be, but humor me if you will.

That's it. I look forward to your responses. Have fun, ride safe, and DON'T TOAST YOUR BIKE!!! Trust me: IT SUX!!!

Lost to the Blacktop God. 4,699 miles in under 3 mos. $8,300 worth of damage to my one and only baby. On the brighter side: Can you say 929rr???

The most miles would have to be Leon and his ZX12. He had more miles on that thing in the first month that I did in 6.

Until I stopped riding two weeks ago (need tires) and excluding the week it was in the shop for fork seals I put 2000 miles on my ZX6R since the beginning of June. 2000 miles in about 6 weeks. Not bad. That's all in town too! On day I spent 5 hours on my bike basically. Boy did my, errr, you know get [email protected]

The 12 is sitting on 7000 miles, since I picked up the bike on May 17. Shortly after, I sold the ZX11 with 104k. What I lack in skill I make up for in practice!

How about this? I purchased my 99 F4 3 weeks to the day and when I got my bike it had 9200 on the odometer and now reads 10,700. Thats 1500 in 3 weeks! Ha!!!

I picked up my RR on a Friday and took it back to the dealer for its first (600 mi) service the next Tuesday. Slowed down since then but when we do ride, it's usually over 100 miles in a day.

1450 in one month. Our Sunday group rides on average about three hundred miles every Sunday, weather permitting.

I only ride on Sunday. Are ride is 180-200 miles round trip. But then, it is in the back of my truck for 60 miles(120 round trip) before I even get to ride.
