How many miles are on your R1200GS(A)? Results tabulated by YEAR

1. Survey has now been COMPLETED.1,279 riders completed the survey in 2012.
No additional inputs are being accepted...THANKS for yours!

Note: ADD 5,000 miles to the mileages shown by year below for 2013.
That is, a 2006 bike should now have approximately 48,000 miles on it by the end of 2013.


Note: ADD an additional 5,000 (total 10,000) miles to the mileages shown by year below for 2014.
That is, a 2006 bike should now have approximately 53,000 miles on it by the end of 2014.

2. Then...return here to see the results for everybody:..

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?

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

Any suggestions?

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!
And...according to my calculations...that could be awhile.

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.

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

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.
