Hey Rusty, are you talking about the trip meter on the odometer? I just went out and tried it and as you reset it by turning the knob (its an analog unit not digital like the KLX400), it adds miles until it comes back around to zero. Is that what you were inquiring about?
Bikes in the stable now:
'01 KTM LC4 400-E
'06 VTX 1800 C (at least the flames are orange)
