Nicely done LPOL. This is a great snapshot in time but how will you keep it current and relevant as time and miles go by?

 LaurelPerryOnLand 11-27-2011 11:05 AM

You are precisely correct...this mileage exercise is a snapshot and will vary over time.

Any suggestions? :ear

I have 82,000 on my GS 1100 96' (no problems, I changed the gas pump once) and 8300 on my 2011( no issues).

Stories behind the numbers

I want to know the stories behind the numbers. Who has the '11 with 60,000+ miles? There has to be some great ride reports/recommendations from that person.

You won't see a ride report from this one...until...he stops riding!:rofl
And...according to my calculations...that could be awhile.

08 gsa, 65,000 klms. this bike is only used one day a week, however, when I get to go on a trip, it is usually a minimum of 8/10 thousand klms. love it:

There are over 7% on 2011 bikes with 60K mileage. WHO ARE those guys?! :D

Apparently the 1 rider that accounts for the 7% got the high priced factory OEM 'glued to seat' option. Can't get off the bike to ask the dealer service department about the phenomena.:rofl

 opposedcyljunkie 11-28-2011 09:21 PM

We better ask him if he uses an aftermarket seat, and get one! :D

If the goal of th survey was to get an idea of miles per year on GS's then I should have listed mine as 2010 instead of an 09. I got it well into 2010.
