January Mileage Challenge

Going to start a monthly mileage challenge. It's simple, Post a picture of your odometer at the beginning of the month and one at the end. Since we have members not only in different time zones but totally different days the beginning odometer reading can be posted one day prior to the first and ending reading one day after the last day of the month. If you own more than one bike then total miles on all count (only your miles count, not other rider miles), just have to submit beginning and ending readings for all bikes. We will do this every month so riders with limited riding weather during winter will have a chance during the summer. There will also be a winner for total miles at end of year. Enter for annual mileage contest at any time and January 1, 2020 will be the last day ending mileage must be submitted. I made a quick spreadsheet and will post new list as people enter. The annual challenge will be on a separate spreadsheet and I will update monthly so everyone knows how they are doing. So post your odometer reading asap. Any questions or suggestions? Let's have some fun with this. I've got a few ideas on what the "winner" gets, give me a bit to work on my idea. Here a copy of spreadsheet.

Addition: In the event you trade or sell, post a pic of the outgoing mileage and the new bike mileage. If you forget to take a pic of the odometer, then the paper work from the sale which should show mileage would suffice.

Got home a bit ago and took picture on odometer, so here's my beginning odometer reading. This will not be a high mileage month for me as I have surgery scheduled January 23 and will be a few weeks unable to ride. But I will participate.

Today’s the 1st and I wish I’d have seen this sooner. Already went for a ride today and racked up 56 miles!
Let me get my mileage pic.

Ok Les, I’ve had my bike one year. Got it last Dec 29th.
You want “mileage” baby, l’ll give it to you!
Eating up mileage is what this bike does BEST! They don’t call it a “Transcontinental” for nothing. As a matter of fact, we have a coast to coast trip planned for this year. What I don’t get is these guys who have an SVTC with only a few thousand miles on it. Poor Bill in Florida is “stuck”. Not really anywhere to go unless you leave the state.
Ok all you SVTC owners out there... I’m throwing the gauntlet down! There should be NO reason that the SVTC doesn’t EASILY hold the mileage records for 1st, 2nd & 3rd place without even trying!
GOT GAME??

You might get it for year but we will see on the monthly totals. I'm sure someone out there will get you, might even me. 😁 Everyone check the first post for list of participants. Is your name there? Why not?
