Just clocked up 81,000km which converts to around 50,000 miles.  Bought with about 8km on the clock.  Did about 21,000km in the first year I had it but since then not quite doing the same sort of mileage as I've been running two bikes to share the work.

The Connie still gets all the long distance and touring stuff and I'm looking forward to seeing 100,000km on the odo some time next year!

Right at 22k, but that includes a year trip to one of the worlds vacation spots (Kuwait), as well as many TDY trips.  It really IS funny how lots of people think THATS a lot of miles!!

Wow, in the 5 percentile and moving towards the 1 %. Do I get a patch for that?  :rotflmao: This bike just loves miles, so do I !!

  • It's only really cold if you fall down in it.
    • C-14 farkles you almost cannot ride without.

C'mon Jerry, you had all winter to catch up. I am just under 78K on mine. :-)  Thinking about doing another one of those 'across the US in three easy steps' runs early this summer- puts a lot of miles on the bike in a short time.

I think you should Brian! Then you'll be our mileage leader on this poll for sure.  :hail:
 
Next time throw Portland on your map, we've got a guest room and always beers in the fridge bro!  :chugbeer:
 
Either that or I'll head up to Chet's to meet you there and we can drink his beer... Actually yes, that sounds much better!!  ;D

Bri,

I do usually ride if there is no snow thru the winter.. Unfortuneately, this winter I had a double heart by-pass surgery. I am just now able to ride again. Working on my long distance stamina so you better do another C2C just to make sure you stay ahead.. ;).  Its so good to be back in the saddle again (cue Aerosmith song)

I had no idea Jerry- sorry to hear about that serious a health issue. On the good side, at least you were diagnosed and there is viable treatment. The best thoughts possible in your recovery and rebuilding you physical strength.

Back to the mileage.... that trip is still in the 'thinking' stage and not definite. I will have to find the time to pull the clothes off the bike and give it a once- over before trying that CC thing again. I think I am loosing a bit of coolant; none on the ground but a faint odor and I believe the recovery tank level is dropping slightly. Probably something silly like a loose or cracked hose but I really do not want to be in WyNebIdtanna at 3:00 AM and find out it is a head leak.

Thanks for the invite- still in the thinking stage and it might not happen. I have to make all the arrangements and then build up to it and convince myself it is really a good idea :-)

There is a C-14 in San Diego that was at something like 109K quite a while ago. Have not heard from that guy in a while so do not know if he still has the bike, and if so, how many miles are on it now. As I remember he had a long commute everyday and really racked up the miles.
