100,000km Milestone
« on: February 04, 2014, 01:48:53 am »
Hi all, it's been a while but I thought I'd better share by write-up on the ride I took on Sunday to finally break the 100,000km mark.

Here it is: http://banditrider.blogspot.co.nz/2014/02/a-wee-milestone.html





Sorry folks, the bike is not for sale!

brilliant! I'm scratching 80 000 km, 50 000 of which I did in the last 2 seasons (had the bike for 5 seasons already). I hope to do the 100 thousand by October '14  :finger_fing11:

ZG, if you don't mind me asking: how many km/miles do you have in yours? and related to that: do you drive other bikes?

I was thinking about 100,000KM in New Zealand last night. I didn't know there were that many roads there. I know very little about New Zealand, but I would sure like to visit there some day. My company has an office there and I keep asking to go and train people there, but thats a no go so far.  :-[

I looked it up this morning and to achieve 100,000KM one would have to ride around both of New Zealand's islands seven times.
