I know I ride a lot... Usually try to get 2 good road trips in per year.

What kinda miles do the rest of you put on per season?

Well, have had my bike sense 94 and am at 116000. So that makes about 8300 a year. But I know I've been doing abut 10000 a year for the last four. So a bit less in the earlier years. I can ride all year here in So California

I was riding every day to work and back, and riding with the wife on the weekends. I put around 12,000 to 13,000 a year on my 84 Aspacade. I had to ease up a bit when I started working for myself. The wing will carry a lot of stuff, but Not a lot of power tools.

6000 to 8000 miles here in IL depends on who goes on trips with us on how far and how fast. but it's all good Right ?

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.

About 5,000 a season. We on the mid and north Atlantic Coast can't use the term " year ", we call it " riding season ".

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!!

I can't pass up this one Joe. What kind of oil will you be using ?

I manage to go through a set of tires a year, even the year I had back surgery. Not really sure about the mileage though.

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:

Got in 18,882 in 2008 and 19,226 this year. Total of 50,001 on the 2005 now. bought it new in Sept 2004 and had a heart attach 19 days later, 6 mo later a double bypass then 3 months after that a pacemaker. The first year didn't get many miles in.

Why is it that we are proud of a LOW mileage car and embaressed about a LOW mileage Wing?

Well i don't get to ride much in the winter because of Missouri weather, but the wife and i still average about 18,000 per year. We take it on vacations, to church, to work...... well ...... almost everywhere. We would love to move to warmer weather where we could in some serious riding. rick

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!
