Going to start our third year of our Annual Mileage Challenge. It's simple, post a picture of your odometer at the beginning of the year and one at the end. All ending mileage pictures are due December 31, by midnight. 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. I made a quick spreadsheet and will post new list as people enter. So post your odometer reading on the first on the year to join in on the fun. This is our third year so any changes or suggestions we might want to add? Let's have some fun with this. The winner is presented with a special and very exclusive trophy. If you sell your bike just post an ending reading and a new reading on your new ride. Here's a copy of participants:

I’m in! We’re taking a final ride today, before the rain hits, and then I’ll post up my ending 2020 mileage.

I had so hoped to get some more miles in 2020. But alas ... 2020 said ..."HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I don't think so! Here is a cracked front master cylinder for you."
So the replacement has been ordered.
@lesblank ... I'll get you a picture for all the mileage counter threads and post it in the next few hours.

Ride smart. Ride often.

I guess I'll be getting in on the ground floor for this year. With longer days and better weather, I expect to make a better showing than I have thus far. So @lesblank please add me in. I have the 2007 650 Silverado and the 2006 Stratoliner S.

Here is the beginning pictures for both.
First the 650
102150


Now the Stratoliner
102151


I'm having trouble with glare when I take a picture on the Strat. If you can't see it clearly, it reads 18,781 miles.

Never done anything like this, but here goes :cool:

XVS650


CBF1000


Isn't it stupid that one has to toggle between trip and odo on modern bikes, whereas old bikes show both values constantly 😣

Im in! Not bad for a bike I bought new at the end of June. I'm going to see if I can get it up over 40k next year.


Edited to up the milage goal. 30k would not have been enough of a challenge.

Thanks. That's great!! It'll be a fun challenge with lots of riders participating. We should set up a reminder every few months for folks to give updates. I know we have the monthly challenge but it might be fun nun the less.

I normally do a mid year update, using the Monthly Mileage Challenge numbers.
