Re: Got mileage? (how many miles ya got?)

The only major problems is that main engine seal leaking. It's happen three times now. The rest is just tires, and 6k service. Overall she's been a perfect bike, it's still stock except for shocks, Ohlins of course. Best upgrade, improves handling immensely!!

One is from the BMWMOA club and one is from BMWNA. Ask your dealer about getting the one from BMWNA.
When we get back from Arkansas I'll ask my dealer to send in for a BMW 300,000 mile medallion.

I've got some catching up to do and trying hard to do it. I didn't ever ride a bike until Sept 2010. Since then, 11,770 on a HD Road King, 23,200 on a HD Ultra, and just under 12,000 on my 3 and 1/2 month old RT.

Re: Got mileage? (how many miles ya got?)

Do bill-able miles count?

If they do I have ¾ million miles in 40 years.

500,000 of them on BMW motorcycles.

Re: Got mileage? (how many miles ya got?)

Made some progress in 2013 with another 25K, now have 51K on my 20 month old 2012 R1200 RT. Never rode until 2010 but 85K on 3 bikes since Labor Day 2010. Gaining some ground on you old timers. Hope to get at least another 30K in 2014.

Re: Got mileage? (how many miles ya got?)

I've been street riding since 1980, I average at least 18k a year so 603,000 minimum plus 10 years of dirt bike riding on top of that. Just commuting alone makes up a good chunk of that but it's still time on two wheels.

Re: Got mileage? (how many miles ya got?)

Thanks Bernie, but it converts out to only about 16,000 kms per year, which isn't really much.

2012 on the K1300R was 10 months and 21,159 kms.
2013 was 25,306 kms.

BTW, I don't know the person with the almost million miles. Its just a name and series of numbers But its a legitimate list and is run by one of the Iron Butt guys.

Got mileage? (how many miles ya got?)

Good question, and it me took a couple of minutes to figure it out.

I've had ten bikes: 2 x Honda, 1 x [Suzuki + Kawi + Yamaha], 3 x Aprilia, 1 x Moto Guzzi, and one BMW.

Overall 155,000 total miles or maybe just a few more. So it sounded like a lot until I divided by the 31 years that I've been riding and it's dang close to 5,000 miles per year.

So, maybe not that much.


What's impressive to me is that there are so many people here who are over 200,000 miles. There are significant minority who have put 200K on one bike. Now that's cool.

Re: Got mileage? (how many miles ya got?)

In the last year 31,989kms...or 19,877 miles. I was a good year.

Since getting back into bikes just over 3 years ago after a 25 year hiatus...77,592kms or 48,213 miles. Most of those miles were on 30+ year old bikes.

Re: Got mileage? (how many miles ya got?)

I was adding it up last winter and I think I'm coming up on about 1.2 million miles on motorcycles since 1962. Old farts rule. I know my retirement fund reflects this issue.

Re: Got mileage? (how many miles ya got?)

I road tested pre-production street bikes for Honda Research in Torrance, Ca. for 10 summers. We rode 300 miles a day, 5 days a week, for 10 weeks. That's 15,000 miles each summer for a total of 150,000 miles over the 10 years. I put 95,000 miles on my 1985 Honda Goldwing and currently have 36,784 on my 2,008 BMW GT. At 76, I'm still eager to ride as much as possible.

I'm thinking your a great example. I worry about riding abilities as time marches on. I hope I have 5 or 10 more years. Good job.

I change your tires, you buy them on the web, I do the work $40, trying to keep riders on the road.

about 15,000 miles so far. A baby, in the long run but my favorite miles are on the long road. Not in traffic.

Re: Got mileage? (how many miles ya got?)

I am coming up on 40,000. Am at 38,200 and they are clicking off. The 50 000 mile service is due next year and there are gonna be some noise hairs be paid. I hear a small rattle in 1st-4th gear at and below 4,000rpm. Sounds like a loose guard or something
