How was your two mileage this year??

I fell slightly short of the previous year as that year I did a 7 State trip...but pretty close to the same.

For fun...ad a pic of your bike that you did the miles on....looking forward to seeing what you guys are riding.

BMW... 17,721 kms (11,075 miles)



1980 GS750....4093 kms (2558 miles)



1981 GS1100....3761 kms (2350 miles)



1983 GS1100....5568 kms (3480 miles)



Total 31,143 kms (19,464 miles)

Another good year for me...

Re: How was your two mileage this year??

I used to be one of the top five (ok maybe top 10 ) Canadians or so every year in the MOA.

30000 to 60000 klicks per year.

Since I moved to the mountains of British Columbia, them roads only need me to go out for a spin to do my duty as a motorcyclist. I barely put in 10000 klicks this summer and that includes the WA and OR Post-SGR (4500km) with Craig in late September in about 10 days. Managed to meet up with fellow I-BMW members beech, Cookie Monster, Paughco, howcan and Pegasus.

These guys and gals are the BEST!







Not a bad pseudo rally!









Usually I go for a run that lasts not much more than 2 hours. I come home after 400 or so mountain curves. I ain't complaining!

Still I understand the value of the thread. Used to pump me up too.

But IMHO... it's the quality of the ride (and the company we keep) not the quantity of the miles anymore...



Cheers
