Time in the Saddle?

12-17-01

I voted 3000 - 6000 miles based on this years riding. I think if I lived in better climate I would use the bike as my primary means of transportation. Such as life.

I do plan on moving to better climate in the next 6 months or so.

17,000 on the CBR-1000, + 7,500 on the Gold Wing, =24,500 total. It was a good year. Typical is 15 to 20,000 total per year.

Actually, for the last two years I didn't work much. I started a business 23 years ago and it was on auto-pilot (semi) and I was burned out. I took a little break. I'm now back at it, working on some new products, and already falling back into the 10+ hour days. I have to be careful not to make a habit of that.

Even when I was working the crazy hours, I still managed 15 to 20K yearly.

I used to be able to find the time to do a lot more riding. I work anywhere between 70 and 80 hours a week, so it gets difficult to put the serious mileage on her. We actually had increadible weather, (and an extremely LONG season), this year! I just work WAY too much! .......Is anyone out there crying for me?

Reelin' 'em in.....
