    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? :ear

    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

    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.

    Upon reflection...it's probably slightly LOW since a value of 62,500 was used in the average for all entries over 60,000.

    2005 could be 75,000?
    2006 could be 70,000 ?

    Guess that I could have made entry ranges up to 100,000 for each year (obviously overkill for 2010-2011) to be more exact.

    There are a good number of entries in the 60,000 mileage range.

    Think you've got a LOW MILEAGE GS/A? How would you prove it?

    1. Enter your mileage in the survey...and compare your results to everybody else!:clap

    2. Click on the EXCEL icon in Post #1...and see the average mileage by year...

    Did you know the average rider logs about 5,600 miles per year? How does that compare to you?
