    I didn't see the original sheet, but this is quite handy. A couple caveats however.


    Also the Maintenance Items for the bikes do not update based on total miles, so if you have a 4k interval for oil changes but travel 20k miles, it only adds the cost for one oil change. I've already updated the spreadsheet to properly calculate based on total miles, working on a few other tweaks like what AllSeasonRider pointed out.

    Thanks for the resource, I'll post up the modified spreadsheet when I'm done as a thank you to those who put the work in before me.

    Thanks for that! It is pretty awesome. As someone who never learned spreadsheets, its easy to use for dummies like me.

    This is awesome. I am planning a trip in June with my old man and my buddy - I am going to put this into Google Drive so we can all collaborate on it.

    You didn't add in a expense factor for BAIL. Unknowingly speeding through poor-dunk towns can get expensive. In fact, (though we seldom ever need it), when my group of sport biker pals go out for a "Sunday Jaunt", most of have 3-500$ in our leathers. Usually wrapped around our health insurance cards. -b

    Thanks for sharing. I'm pretty tech/app-competent, but terrible with Excel/Numbers.
    Your spreadsheet is so good, it made me wanna get better at it.
