    Down a bit this year. That 4 mile commute is making it too easy.

    I've done almost 10k on my big V since I got it in April. 5 k on my KLR and about 2k on the Valkyrie before I got rid of it. Not too bad considering I only get to ride 1 1/2 days a week for the most part.

    Between buying the F800 in late June and not having any vacation time for the first time in 13 years, my mileage took a big hit this year. There were no extended trips, my commute is less than a mile and I really don't know what I did through July and August. I did more riding between September 1 and November 22 than I did most of the summer. Final Tally for both bikes was just under 15,000Km. Still not bad, I guess. But about 10-12K under where I normally am.

    The triumph sprint is probably not considered a beast, but nonetheless, 17k miles this year so far.

    Nice! Especially being up North! :1drinkMy 120 mile/day commute adds up. Haven't had a chance to do more than a 2 day weekend trip on the bike so far, but as always, my hopes are high! The Tenere is awesome. I haven't had this much fun with a bike in ages.

    I split my yearly mileage between my Vee and the KLR. I commute on the KLR and usually ride the Vee 2up on the weekends. I think each got around 7-8k miles this year. We didn't get in any long trips, mostly shorter weekend rides.

    I was seriously jealous of the guy who racked up 50k miles in one year, that's some serious riding. I was doing about that much when I was a motorcycle courier back in college. I averaged about 1k miles a week, I kinda miss that job....:nod
