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.

Starmike13 you're putting more miles on your bike than I put on my car and I drive 80 miles round trip to work each day.

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.

bevo, I wish you had more choices ( for we older riders) 100000 is not really that many:( Maybe 250, 500k ect?)

I've been riding daily for 40 years and ticked 250000 but as I put 95000 on one BMW alone during that time it's probably not enough!

I don't have a car and use my bike as my only transport.

As for trips to the bathroom....................

I clicked 250K+, but about half of them were on my pedal bikes.

Sparkn I am a disabled veteran and have alot of free time. And riding puts me in my happy place. Plus I have a step son that loves to ride with me. Plus the wife likes to ride two up. And I live in the Texas Hill Country.

Good to know there are a few of us old timers out there with a good few miles in our past! Mind you we have a long way to go to catch up with Percy Tait an old Triumph factory test rider and racer with over 1,000,000 miles under his belt.

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


:D
Aw man! So sorry to hear of your bathroom problems:( Sure glad Ol Sugar Bear don't have to deal with that! He has read that there is meds that can help you, you may want to talk to the Doc and then I hope all will come out well;):D

wow. this got more votes in 6 hours than most BOTM contests get in 6 days. i wish all you guys would vote as often for bikes of the month.
Just a thought here bevo: You think maybe it is cause most folks care bout their own bike and don't give a rat's ass bout lookin at pictures of other folks bikes? Don't mean nothin here, just sayin.;)

Have fun folks!

Ride Safe, Live Long!!
