This'll separate the men from the chaff.....

Or maybe it's the wheat from the boys.......

Flyboy's post about 30K made me wonder.......
How far have YOU ridden on YOUR K-bike.
or K-bikes?

Personally, I haven't made it around the earth's equator yet.
Vic has over 100k (miles) in less than (insert number here) years.
Iron Butts, wimps....whatever...... post up! For those few of you using Km's ( small 'merican joke - ha ha) please use the 5/8 rule......

Here is the question:

How far have you ridden on your K-Bike(s)?
Feel free to add a post with excuses, or to brag.

Re: This'll separate the men from the chaff.....

I purchased my '00 KRS in April of last year. I have put on almost 10k miles. I ride it almost every day unless I have to transport my children or other things for work or when the family goes on vacation. Rain or shine doesn't really matter. I do have an advantage to some, I live in South Florida, cold weather is 50F degrees (yes, I ride in colder weather).

Re: This'll separate the men from the chaff.....

I got 50k on my 03. Had 10k on my 02 before it imploded. But I haven't really done much riding in the last two years.

And I have about 40k on my GS that's been down for a year.

Four years on the 15 of this month. Might kick over 86k by then...


That's not counting the K75RT mileage, either. Poll stopped 2/3rds shy of the mark IMNSHO

Re: This'll separate the men from the chaff.....

02 Lt 34K-18 mts.

03 Gt 46K-3yrs.

Whats really good for me is my only problems have been one head light bulb on the LT and two head light bulbs on the GT.Knock-on-wood.

80K plus on K's and I'm still amazed every time I ride.

Re: This'll separate the men from the chaff.....

bought my 99 K12RS in late 00 with 13k on the clock and sold her in mid 05 with 67+ but most of that time I own another street bike as well ducati 900ss or an RC51, but used to commute daily, for the last 3 years I walk to the barn to commute so my riding miles have dropped quite a bit.

Re: This'll separate the men from the chaff.....

Okay so I am supposedly just getting to know my bike, but my 14000+ is all in the last year, and I was just a few from being able to click 15. I would consider that a bit of riding in a years time. Though I do aspire to turn this bike over 100k, I am a bit behind this year and need to catch up!

Re: This'll separate the men from the chaff.....

I don't quite fit any of the categories. I ride strictly for recreation, not transportation, so I'm not a "rounder", but have ridden my two K bikes a total of 46K since September '03: 24K on my '03 K1200RS and now have 22K on my '05 K1200S. To me, the KS is the perfect motorcycle...

Re: This'll separate the men from the chaff.....

I have put 23,000 miles on my 03 GT in just under 2 years. The GT had some adjustment to go through I bought it in 05 with only 3k on the odo. I hope to get about 15k on this year. I ride whenever I can even through the winter. Wednesday it was 23 degrees F when I left for work 62 on my way home.

Re: This'll separate the men from the chaff.....

I've got 90K on my K75s, and am going for 100 this year.
And 53K on the K12RS.
I also had a K75c, on which I probably did less than a thousand (it was a "spare" bike), and a K1 that probably got 10K or so.

But who's counting?

Re: This'll separate the men from the chaff.....

Bought mine just over 18 months ago with 6.5K on it, it is getting ready to turn 24K. Not bad for a full time employed parent, student with a 15mi commute, it was a 10mi commute until a few months ago.

2000 K12 RS. Just over 92,000 but I would not call it dependable. I've got a bunch of money in it just to get this far.

I should reach 15K in the next month. I'm a convert to the dark side. Put about 125K on a combination of airhead & oilhead before my '04 K-RS. Averaging around 7K/year, not bad for someone in my occupation, at least in this part of the world.

Re: This'll separate the men from the chaff.....

The odometer shows only 17,227 but my old '98 Taxi had 120,000 miles on it's odometer when I sold it.

Should I have totalled both of them together before answering the poll?

What I meant was that you probably spent more than $3k on tires.

most of my miles were accumulated on both bikes in two years. And hell yes, I spent a lot of money on tires. I had SWMotoTires on speed dial.

Re: This'll separate the men from the chaff.....

About 74,000 miles on K RAPIDO since 1999 with just one single repair (rear engine seal).

In the time I've owned it I've also put countless miles on my old Airhead GS, Buell, KTM, sidecar rig and DRZ.

Allah only knows how many total miles ridden in that time - probably an add'l 60k or more between the other bikes. And, yes, LOTS of tires and oil and filters and batteries!

103,000 miles '87 K75S (1 fork seal and 1 fan motor under warrantee, 1 output shaft at 85,000...my nickle)
47,000 miles '96 K1100RS (100% trouble free)
76,000 miles '99 K1200RS (seat replaced at 4 years 45,000 miles free ... love BMW & my dealer)

God, don't any of you work for a living? Or are your offices two states away? I've had my bike for just over a year and have only managed 2k miles. Yes it's still winter here but I have been out riding four or five times already.

Re: This'll separate the men from the chaff.....

I think there is more to it than just miles. For example, I rode my 91 k100rs 3,000 miles in one weekend. It was easy, had three friends to ride w/, weather was awesome, and the roads in Tennesee and surrounding area are most motivating.

IN five days we rode from south louisiana to the rally in modus conneticut ( 1995 or 6). That was 4,800 miles in 4 days & 18 hrs...surreal actualy

Also, The only transportation was my 99 GS for 6 months last yr as slush box on truck took a dump. I road the GS everywhere, rain or shine, store, 50 mile commute in horrific traffic. Nothing like leaving the house at dark oclock, into thunder, lightning, and squalls...deal w/ cagers that are asleep at the wheel, get to work and spend 30 mins getting sorted to be able to work! Then getting in wet gear to face the same on the return trip. Yep I aged about 3 yrs after doing that every day. Cost? Saved tons on gas money, experience....priceless

I have 105K on my 2002 K12RS. A blast to ride. I bought it brand new and have ridden it across country many a time, commuting has been maybe 20K of the total. I do ride year round, Virginia winters are not too bad, maybe a week or so when I can not ride due to ice on roads.

25,000 on the 01 K1200RS IBM ( Ice Blue Marakesh)
75,000 on the 02 K1200RS IBM ( go figure... International Busin... euh... Inter Ballistic Missile, it had to look exactly like the #2 so that the kids wouldn't know that I had crashed a second K12...)

Ride safe!

Re: This'll separate the men from the chaff.....

K75RT- 28,300
K1200GT - 93016
Had the K75RT as a re-starter bike (after a layoff of 23 years) that lasted about a year and a half. It decided it was time for a new owner. Had 66k miles on it when I bought it from San Jose BMW, and based on records, I was at minimum the 7th owner.

GT was new (7 miles) but when it was off-loaded from the truck, it had exactly 1.0 on the trip odo, and 1 on the odo. However, it was the second Orient Blue they got, and I'm sure someone got a test ride before I stepped up to purchase it.

I had 19,000+/- on my '06 KS until I left it in the ditch in Robbinsville at last year's DGR. I now have 47 on the '08 KS I picked up today

My K12RS was purchased new in Feb of '05. Yesterday she rolled over 86000 trouble free miles. That's an awful lot of those commuting miles that don't count as riding!

Re: This'll separate the men from the chaff.....

my '04 kgt is 4yrs old today. just turned 52k miles. after obligatory warranty seal jobs, only trouble was a rewire of the headlight by the dealer, also warranty. if she will, i'll go 250k with her. absolutely no upside to trading for another model. what more could i want?
