Not totally done with this year yet. But thought a comparison to 2019 might be interesting that we have so far.

I'll update all readings for the mileage threads when I get home from work. Someone has to work to ship y'alls parts out. By the way @ecbaatz , you were the closest to @Roadguy , you just need to triple your mileage.
Believe me, I would love to, one of the reasons I got my bike, but with my mother's health the way it is, it might be a little while before I can do that. At least though, I have a bike to give it a try.

35247 miles = 56712 km, or about 7 seasons for me. The distance for me is mindboggling. With the typical average riding speed I am able to keep, and that is with pushing well into the heavy fine and many penalty points territory often, it means 777 hours riding. Then add a minimum of breaks, dressing/undressing, maintaining the bike and we are talking 3 hours per day, all year. I do not have the time for that, nor the will to priority. Riding for me is the total package and I collect smiles per day more than miles per day. But if I did not have work, family, home, workouts etc. I could see myself enjoy that amount of riding, though. Some day...

I still work my 40 hour weeks and ride on the weekends. I have never been pulled over and not 1 traffic ticket in all my years.
