    Your Mileage for 2004 ?

    What was your total mileage for the year 2004 ?

    For the past 10 years I was averaging 2K on my Yamaha Sportbike.

    Only rode in perfect (warm) weather for short trips...
    Now that I own a BMW RT I ride year round .
    And ride longer trips to Rallies,etc.
    The bike is just a bit more comfortable to sit on all day !!

    I rode over 13 K this year...

    Talking Riding Maniac???

    So far I have ridden about 26K this year and a total of 33K in a year and a half, ever since taking an MSF Course in June 03.
    I think that something is wrong with me because all I can think of is riding, especially since I got my 05 LT. Any excuse and I am on the bike!!
    Can't help it, dunno what to do about it.
    I guess the riding bug got me good, but I do feel helpless at times you know. 3

    before i answer YOUR question motofranz i have one for you. why did you start riding so much more often once you bought a beemer? was it the comfort of the bike? the BMW community/mind set? more free time? or ??

    got the first rockster in july 03 and had 10,400 by the anniversary. had 15,700 when i traded it in 9 days ago.

    heated handlegrips rock and rule. so does the shellaclava from aerostich!

    Don't know off hand, but I could tell you about the really great rides, incredible scenery and phenomenal roads I've driven this past summer.

    Likewise, when I had an all-out sport bike, it was more of a toy. I used it on long day trips the odd time, but it was never really the same as when I'm on my BMWs. Comfort wasn't the problem. Who knows.

    ~ 11,000 for 2004. Shooting for at least 15k in 05. Entered the year with an R11R and an R65 and am leaving it with an R11RT and an R100S. I think the bikes in the stable will be conducive to more miles.

    Your Mileage

    Well Cliffy ..
    All of the above.

    When I was riding the Sportbike the weather had to be clear within a hundred mile radius B/4 I would ride anywhere.

    I would think it was a big adventure doing a 100 mile route in Northern Kentucky.
    After 100 miles I was ready to take a nap .
    The bike was very uncomfortable.

    After riding the Beemer in the RAIN a few times and getting my confedence level up I had no fear in taking longer rides.
    The bike is so comforatable to ride ...
    The RT feels more reliable....
    The bike is built for TOURING period !!

    Dunno. 15 or 20K. I've put 9K on the GS since I bought and used up a set of tires on the VFR, so it's probably right about 15K.

    Some bikes. Some with motors, some without.

    I've got about 13.5K in spite of losing 2 and a half summer months, and I've still got 1 day to go.

    Not sure exactly how much, but in the neighborhood of 25k like usual, I suppose. That's spread over 5 beemers. A couple thou on each of the /2 and the /3. 6k on the R90S. Another 3k on the R1100RS. And maybe 18k on the R1150RS. Gee, that's over 30k. Where does the mileage go? ;-)
