    2014 Mileage Tracker

    Yesterday I went for the first ride of the 2014 season. It was a high of 6C and a low of 1C.
    Didn't matter, the Gerbings jacket and pants plus the heated seat and grips took the chill off.
    The roads were dry and a little sand covered in the center but I kept the bike in the track and
    rode 273km from home to Bobcaygeon then along Pigeon Lake Road to Emily Park, County Road 14
    to CR17, 16 and 37 to Buckhorn, 36 and 28 to Apsley, 28 north to 118 east, 503 and 507 to 36 and
    back home. Betty, the bike, was reluctant to start but, once running, rode flawlessly the entire way.
    It's a wonderful feeling to have her back on the road for another season of fun and adventure.

    So I read the post from last year's 2013 Mileage Contest and propose the "2014 Mileage Tracker".
    My 2010 R1200 RT started the season with 90,126 klix on the clock and the count is on! Yippee!!
    It's a tough job but somebody's gotta do it.

    Though I've been commuting most of the winter, I looked down at my speedo and caught it right at 17000 miles. It's going in for the 18,000 mile service, soon enough, and I may just trade it in on a '13, or '14 RT. We'll see what they have laying around at the dealer.

    I'm too lazy to join the official mileage contest, and I like this much better.

    I reset the avg MPH and avg MPG after every refill. Maybe I should start doing it on a monthly basis. I suspect that is more interesting. (more numbers to be OCD about.

    Last year I kept track of how long my low beam light was lasting, 6,971.6 miles per bulb. Or 196.3 hours per bulb. I,m much better now. I used to count the split wood when I was stacking it.

    Now that is funny!!! I guess my low beam is lasting a lot longer than yours.

    I think the mpg is a little optimistic; I believe it's more like 44.5. The ride this morning showed 49.0...I wish.
