How the miles fly bye

I rode years ago as alot of us did. I am not counting back then. In 07 got a Honda 750 put 6000 mile on it. Was totaled when I hit a deer. Then got Honda VTX 1300 2008 model that I put 82000 mile on it. And then traded it for a 07 Harley electric glide with 20000 mile on and it was totaled this last Feb. with 42000. And now I have the VStar 1300 Deluxe that I got on March 28th and it has 7000 mile on it already. Got to get your ride on.

No, no, no SugarBear, you've misunderstood the poll. This is not about number of trips to the bathroom during the night . . . .

I could come up with 50,000 without too much in the way of problems. Trouble is, I didn't really log most of those miles, so I can't be too sure.
