Your miles in 2019

(Borrowed from ‘another’ forum). Post up a picture of your odometer reading now, then at the end of the year come back and put in a pic of your final miles for 2019. Feel free to put in multiple bikes, if you have them. If you sell a bike mid-year, don’t forget to edit in a final mileage pic at the time of sale.

Also, if you know your miles ridden in 2018, throw them on, as well.

Here’s mine this morning. Might change slightly - may take a short spin this evening. And my miles for 2018 are 10,924 (bought in April w/ 8,844 on it).

Ride safe, y’all !!!!

I only put 7134 miles on the CTX this year. The new Gold Wing got all the big miles. And I still managed to put a few thousand on the Scout.

It's been a long time since I've had a year with a lot of miles. I work way too many hours. 67 inches of rain didn't help much this year.

I start every year thinking this will be the year I get back to serious riding. But the reality is that until I find a job with reasonable hours and some real vacation time, I won't be riding as much as I'd like.

I know the title of this thread is for miles in 2019, but you did ask also for 2018.
On the ST-Owners forum there is a place in everyone's profile to put in miles during the year and that number is collected into a spreadsheet and sorted by miles (most to least) that everyone can look at showing every member's miles for the year. This entry is blanked out at the first of the year for everyone to ensure it is only miles for that year. I usually rank somewhere in the middle of all the members on that forum.

This year, 2018, I put 4554 miles on my CTX and 3030 miles on my Burgman 650 for a total of 7584 miles on two wheels for the year. That is close to average for me. I've been as high as over 11,000 miles in one year on the CTX and as low as somewhere between 5500-6500 miles for a year on my Gold Wing (when I started riding long distance on a bike).

I have a total of 138,349 lifetime miles on two wheels. Not a lot compared to some who have been riding a long time, but more than others who are really just getting started.

Like Ken I would like to have a job with more time off. I do get a good amount of vacation time from work, but my ideal "job" with sufficient time off would be called RETIREMENT. However, since most miles I put on any bike is from commuting to/from work I would have to really pick up on recreational riding just to keep the same average miles per year. In some years when I would take off on weekends just to go for a ride around the area I did end up riding over 100 miles each time so that may not be so much of an issue for me.

Looking at the "fuelly" app that I use to track mileage I can take a good guess at how many miles I had January 2018 and end up with about 3356 miles for 2018. That's almost embarrassing! I'm quite the fair weather rider and as we had the wettest year ever I simply wasn't out much. Really hoping to be out more in 2019. Last Spring my ride up the Blue Ridge and Skyline into Canada was interrupted by a Hurricane. As many of you may remember the October Meetup in the Mountains was interrupted by a Hurricane as well so I began feeling rather cursed after my two major planned rides of the year ended up being shortened, especially the Spring ride.

Anyway I'm just starting to plan a repeat of my ride to the Blue Ridge and on to Skyline. I'm hoping to coordinate somehow with riders up in the MD, PA, VA and WV area as some of them have discussed a Northern Meetup of sorts. How bout it??

Current mileage today is 9206

With only 2 days riding allowed so far in 2019 I am up to a phenomenal 86 miles for the year!

Well, considering ice all over the driveway in the mornings and water run off in the afternoon that's not too bad. All commuting miles so far. Wore my new Gore-Tex TCX Air boots one day and my solid shell Ridge boots the other day and in spite of the morning temps in the mid 20s F I really didn't notice any difference in comfort. It was, however, warmer in the Ridge boots coming home when the temp was in the upper 40s F.

Oh, forgot the pic of the Odo at the beginning of the year.

Thinking of working on a spreadsheet to log current year miles as they rack up similar to another forum I belong to. Haven't been able to make it work to resort as I want it keeping most miles traveled at the top working down to fewer miles. It would be something to update on the fly if I can get it to sort right. I did find a script that should do it every time the spreadsheet is viewed but haven't worked out all the details of that yet.

Is that something we would be interested in having?

not bad 13000 miles rode in 2017 and in only 9 months... late March through December. I try to do at least 300 miles each weekend.. and I commute a short distance when the office requires.

side note/: replaced the factory Dunlops front and rear tire at 12000 ; I went with the Michelin Commander II tire -- wow that is a nice performing tire.

2019 miles thus far - 80 .. this past weekend the schedule and weather didn't really cooperate --- darn it.

There was one time.... it was crazy awesome!

Odo shows 27,954 this morning.
Actually ended 2018 at 19,795.

That yields 7,259 for the year.

Ended the year (2019) with a total of 6522 miles traveled on both the scoot and the CTX1300 (sold in 2019). On the low side of my average for the last 5-6 years but still adjusting to retirement and all the other stuff SWBO wants me to be busy with and being half the daycare for the grandkids.
