and back home. All told it was five days, 1000 miles (and a few rest stops for fire water and gambling) not a world record by any means, But I am working at expanding my abilities
when I got back and I noticed that i have 12k Service around the cornerand probably a set of new tires at the same time. I went back and calculated the repair cost per mile for each mile i ride this bike and over the past year I average 87.5 cents per mile in repair costs (not counting gas or oil)
I have an "RT"question for the group....
do I have a lemon of an RT or is this just what it costs to run an RT..???
" am I throwing money at a dead hourse?
Eighty seven cents per mile not counting gas and oil? I don't believe it. What in hell did you buy?
87 cents per mile x 12,000 miles = $10440.00
No fracking way!
You don't need a new bike, you need a new calculator!
