SF Bay Area to Blue River Oregon via a scenic and very indirect route. Around 700 miles. I forget the exact figure.

Rained most of the way.

I am a stats nerd.

So I took the mid point on all the ranges and kept the 1400+ at 1400 to work out the averages.

Adventure riders come in with an average of 816 miles per day.

Sportsbikes.net riders come in at 443 miles per day on average.

Not really rocket science but interesting nonetheless - I didn't think the gap would be that big.

My aging body would prefer 816 miles on an RT to 443 miles on a crotch rocket.

This is counting every day for he last 45 years.

If you are not Emilio Scott you may want to contact Guinness.

First off let me say you need to get out more ("WAY MORE") I've sat around many a camp fire with plenty
of (1) - (2) & 3 million mile riders over the years.

My years are 45+ years of riding so your a little off on your math.

I've rode ("MANY") 100,000 + mile years and some 35,000 mile years.

I'm very close to 2 million miles (VERY CLOSE) so again your math is a little off.

Most importantly I'm not bragging at all because I have many friends that make me look like
a Social Club (owner) instead of a motorcyclist.

Example of one friend of mine: Walt Healy (RIP) of Walt Healy Motorcycles Calgary Alberta Can.

Walt (RIP) & his family own the oldest motorcycle dealer/shop in "North America" in the same
location operated by the same family. Walt started his shop around the time the Indian motorcycle
company started.

He never had an automobile license his whole life (only a motorcycle license) he rode every day from
the time he started riding on the street till he died at age 100 (we think age 100) he would never tell
his birth date exactly.

Walt never owned a car or rode in a car his whole life. He brought his family up and ran his business
without ever using a car. ( he rode only motorcycles in Canadian weather all year round )

Walt rode countless miles (probably in the millions) before he died all while raising his family and
running his business.

He rode across Canada every year in February till he died at age 100. When people asked him WHY?
he did this his answer was: ("it keeps me young") which IMO must have worked.

I grew up in Canada and rode my motorcycle to work every day even in 45 below zero on 6 inch's of
ice in snow storms. I'd fall down many times going to work and coming home some days in the
winter. WHY? because I loved to ride. Until the day I met Walt (when I was a young man) I thought
I loved motorcycles and riding them more then anyone in the world. Once I met Walt I knew there
had to be more like him out there and over my years of riding I've met many.

The point to the above story is: You really need to get out more so you can find out how silly
you sounded posting things about peoples riding that you know nothing about.

As for you and some others on here: I have no idea why you insist on posting
on one thread about things you read on other threads disrupting threads that
have nothing to do with what your talking about. Totally disrespectful IMO as
is knocking some one because they love to ride more then you!!

I'll re post this where you should have put it in the first place.

I'm also going to apologize to everyone on this thread for the interruption of this
thread by others and myself with things that have nothing to do with this thread..

Sorry guys"

I really find much humor in Social Club (owners) because unlike motorcyclists they have no clue what
their talking about.

#1 they seem to be dyslexic alot of the time posting on one thread that has nothing to do with what they
are posting that they read on a different thread LOL"

If you could read properly you would see I never posted what year I bought or built the Z1?

For your information how ever I did the very first full service on the very first Z1 in the USA although
this still has nothing do with when I bought or built mine.

Once again I'll re post this post to where it belongs (maybe you'll remember
where that is?) and apologize to everyone here for both you and I for posting
non relevant posts on this thread.

Sorry guys"

Thanks for crunching the numbers. That's interesting. I knew the average would be higher here, but that large of a gap surprised me as well.

It sounds like you were highly motivated and perhaps even well rewarded for the effort.
