I usually just RIDE my bikes. I don't waste much time taking pictures of them (except my S40, when I posted the pictures to Craigslist). Since I don't waste time or money on customizing, a standard factory stock shot is all I need.

I put 5,000, but I could never be sure. I only put about 300 miles on my current bike, about 300 miles on an old 49cc scooter (them's hard miles!), but a vast majority of my miles were off-road on dirt bikes. No way to tell how many actual miles I rode, so I will guess 5k.

At the current rate I am riding, I should put about 12K per year on my bike. Next year we plan to ride PCH from Santa Monica to Washington State and back, so it will be a lot more.

2007 V Star 1100 Classic. Vance and Hines, 21" spoke, white walls + other stuff.

2010 HD FLHCTU Electra Glide Ultra CLassic. Freedom Performance true dual exhaust + power commander.

Never ride faster than your angel can fly.

Wow, I guess it's all the commuting 70-80 miles to work that puts the miles on mine. Want to live in the country and have to drive to where the jobs are.

Ya, in all fairness you have to take in to consideration us elderly people that rode to and fro, that worked construction back in the 70s and 80s, when job sites where spread out all over southern Ca into Imperial county and up to northern LA. All I had for the first 15 years of having a license was motorcycles. No Car. No supper slabs back then either. I averaged 35K to 50k miles per year juts to and from work, then you add the fun rides you can probobly add another 25k. Multiply that times 15. I'm 57 years old and retired now so there is no more to and fro but we still average 12,000 miles a year on the bikes, and half the year there is too much snow to go out on the bikes. I think we have already put 5k miles on the bikes since the snows have melted, since late Marc, and that's just local riding. Put 2,200 miles in the last 60 days. 800 of that was a weekend ride to Tahoe which is only 300 miles from hear.
I did stop riding for a number of years but I'm sure I logged close to if not more than a million miles before I stopped. And that's not counting all the riding I did from the time I was 7 years old till I got a license and started riding street bikes.

I rode a bunch back in the day (70's and 80's) several years of over 10k miles each. Quit riding for 20+ years and got back into it this past January. Logged about 9k so far this year and loving it.

I work in a remote area where everyone who isn't hillbilly drives at least 30 miles one way to work (I drive 40 myself). If you commute with your ride I can see the miles racking up pretty quickly. Not as quickly as the truck I used to drive (125,000 miles per year) but 25,000 is nothing to bark at just for the commute. Car lots also are littered with two year olds with 50,000+ miles on them.
