Riding

Two years in and I do 5,000 miles each year. I don't think that will change much because I'm in New Hampshire. I even ride during the very rainy spring time. I try to ride in between rains. Sometimes you know you'll have a few hour window between rain, thats when you go (sometimes I state the obvious).

This makes perfect sense after reading about yosemetibobr from southern Cal., who rides 10,000 miles +, all year.

I bought my bike in March of 08, it was down for a month after an accident and then in the shop for another month, so It has been on the road for about 17 months and I have 18,000 on it so I guess a little over 12,000 year. Oh that reminds me, it's time for an oil change!!

24,000+ for me, both for work and recreation. I'm ashamed to say more work than recreation, my longest drive for work is 400mi round trip. Hey GLWingnut, Like you I have to haul tools, a trailer does wonders! :rolleyes:

Us northern tier guys have to put the Wing to rest for the colder months (at least I do). This past year (May to Nov) I put about 5k which was a slow year for me. I'll try to make up for it next year.. Ride safe.

I don't get the chance to ride like I used to, only put 3500 miles on the new 1800 this season. In the past though, I did a lot more as we used the Wing and the Wingnut Hilton (our nick-name for our Tiny Mite tent trailer) on holidays all over the Western side of the continent both the 1200 and 1500. from '84 to '91 I put 163,000 on the 1200, and from '92 to '95 60,000 on the 1500. That's an average of 23,000 on the 1200 a year, 20,000 on the 1500. Gotta find the time (stupid job and commitments anyway) to do that again!

back when I was young I put on a lot of miles (put 40K on a CB750 in one year) and when I bought my First GoldWing in 77 I was on road trips every weekend. Every year I made two cross country trips (Myrtle Beach to LA). I used it as my primary bike for 2 years and my secondary for the next 18 years and still manage to rack up 177K on that bike. I racked up a good many miles on other differant bikes over the years but none like the 77. When I bought my first Valkyrie I did 39K the first year but with back and health problems I doubt I've had a 15K year since 98. I'm prob doing about 10K a year right now. Come this summer I plan to put at least 20K on the Wing. With 2009 came 3 heart surguries so I only did about 1500 miles. I put a new set of Dunlop E3's on the bike yesterday along with the new reverce switch and a full service. The wife and I are ready to go just waiting for a break in the weather.

On the Wing it should be in the 12,000 to 13,000 mile range.
On the Zed add another 6,000 miles.

a few miles...

My last two bikes were FJR1300 Yamaha's. Had each of them 3 years, and 40,000 miles or a little more on each. The first 8 days I had my wing.... 2400 miles. Now with the extream heat, I will probably slow down a bit.:p

I have a 01 E-Glide with 102,000. First two years I put 32,000. My first bagger so I rode it. I've slowed down because of the miles on it but it comes out to an average of just over 10,000 a year. I can't wait to get my Wing so I can get back on the open road and just ride.
