Ok all, riding season is here, or pretty damn close.

How many miles do you plan on putting on your bike?

I plan on putting a few thousand at least! :D

I'm going to be commuting for over an hour every day to work, one way. So I imagine I'll get quite alot.

From May or Jun - Oct I have been averaging about 7 - 8 thousand .. and hope to do the same again if not more this year :thumb: I put most of my miles on my weekend rides with Redline cause they are 2.5 hrs south of me and I usually put on at least 300 - 400 miles on a short day of riding with them... my work miles are only 30 miles round trip from home.. and I ride any time it's not raining in the morning or when I don't have to dress up nice cause of a meeting :p

Not sure as of yet. If we had either of our old bikes back I was averaging about 2500 miles per month. It'll probably be less than 1000 for the whole summer now though as all we have is the Buell Blast. Who knows, maybe I'll give it another chance and ride it. It just has no balls when you're used to an XX. :(

I had my first good ride of the season yesterday, it was only about 60 miles, but it felt great. I was faster then usual, alot of twisties, I even managed to widen the wear pattern on the tires, so I guess I got it lower too.


I'M NOT OUT THERE BEING A SQUID EITHER. :D

How many miles

I got my FJR on 25Th October and I now have 9534 miles. I was not able to ride every day during the winter. I rode in temps as low as 18 degrees but when we finally got some moisture to go with cold I went to the cage.

I took my FJR to FLa for 2 week vacation.

I have ridden everyday since the vacation ended March 28.

I have 160 mile round trip commute so the miles rack up fast for me.

Ahhh but what a delight to desend out of the pass and look out over the Tularosa Basin at night with a full moon lighting it up. I love it.
