In my 40 years of riding I used to ride a lot. One year (1981) I rode my Yamaha XV920R 36,000 miles. I still have that bike (though it a piece of junk sitting in the back yard now). Two years ago I bought a 2004 Z06 Corvette and now I don't ride my bike any long distances (the car is so much better) and I probably only put 3,000 to 4,000 miles a year on my current bike now (I haven't owned it for a year yet!).
Already this year have bout 700 in before the weather decided to start playing games with us. 80 on day--2 days later 12+ inches of snow but thinking after all is said and done should be around 5k or maybe alittle over especially with gas in the low $3.00 range for the car
well I just completed 1 year in june and I put on just a little over 5k so thats it for me...I want it to be a litlle higher cause I plan if possible to go riding on some trips to the local mountains and such.
