So let hear it, how many miles have your ridden? Sorry for the purely miles thing, the metric crowd will have to convert :wink:

I have around 40 000 miles clocked.

I have over 60,000 in the last three years. I'm just going to assume it's been over 100,000 miles in 25 years of riding bikes.

LoL- it helps to have multiple bikes to carry the load. Still cheaper than car insurance.

Vstrom 650
GL 1800
Xs 850 with sidecar (in pieces for frame and body painting)
cb 360
ex 250
Gsxr 750
Kx 250
Gas Gas 280

Though I suffer from SMAS enough that that list changes quite a bit. I've sold a magna v30, 2 XZ550's, a gs 850 and a kz 400 in the last two years. Turned a nice profit on each one too.

We stumbled off topic here. Oh well :wink: . The KX is a fantastic machine but the Gas Gas eats boulders. It's too tough for me to dare say anything not glorifying its power.

Been riding on-and-off since 1956 on a total of five bikes. Never kept track of the mileage totals but I'd guess it's more than 20,000.

I'm losing track but about 65,000 miles since 2004 plus whatever mileage I put on in my first motorcyling incarnation in the 1970/80s, so probably something comfortably over 100,000 miles
