I selected 100k. In Florida, I commuted to work every single day on a GS750T, then a VFR, then a Concours.
After a 20 year hiatus (I married a trauma nurse), I've put 3.5k on my 1300 since February.

Two bikes with 80,000 two or three with 25,000 to 40,000 and a handful with 10,000 plus. Thats in 44 years of riding and not owning a car except 1998 to 2002.

Well, put 100,000 on my first bike a Honda Shadow. Then another 127,000 on my 91 Venture Royale. Now I’m up to 7800 on my new SVTC that I got December 29th.

43 year old fairly new rider here. Took a Motorcycle Course last year and started with a Kawasaki Versys 650. Decided this year I wanted a cruiser and traded for a Vstar 1300. Love my Vstar!

I count all the miles if ridden gotta be well over 250k I've been riding street bikes since 1987 be all over this country and part of Mexico way back when. I have ridden everything from sport bikes to baggers all models except side car models lol . I do know some one who owns a ural. Cool as hell look in bike. My first street bike was a Honda 650. Next was a 79 sportster damn thing would rattle you and itself apart at a stop light lol. Then got a kz750 rode that bike everywhere. From east cost to southwest up to frozen land of Michigan all over the place lol. Then I got a couple of Kawasaki vulcan 750 then the 800. Currently have a vulcan 900 and yammy stratty love them both. Got 40,000 on the clock of the vulcan (all mine) got about 32 on the clock of the strato but only 1500 are my miles just got it 2 weeks ago

I put 1000 but I have about 3700 since June - try to ride every day. I didn't put my cumulative experience over my lifetime because a) I didn't ride for about 35 years and b) my youthful experience was almost always on the dirt. That doesn't necessarily translate real well to riding a cruiser!

Loving the forum!
