    OK, Riding season is almost here. How many miles do you have on your bike? How many miles do you think you'll ride this year?

    I have an 06 V* 1100 with 7000 miles on it. ( I bought it with no miles in March of 07)

    I'll be disappointed if I don't add 10,000 to her this year.

    Only 4,700 on my '05 V* Classic, bought new in spring '06. Probably get in another 2-3k this year. But, I work from home, so no daily commute...

    Ride year round here, but only get in between 7,500 to 8,500 a year. Plan to ride out to see my son in Colorado this year, so maybe additional 2,500 for a round trip.

    I had 13,500 on my '05 VTX 1300, but I didn't buy it until April of 06. I traded it on Dec. 31, 2007, for my new Raider. Is that a lot? I don't really know, I just know I like to ride. I just want to ride my Raider. Every day, always, constantly, forever, no matter what.
    Yep, I'm a dummass.

    I have almost 9000 on my 06 Vmax. It would have been more except for a Work injury that has keep me off it for 5 months. I hope to get back on it real soon.

    2.5k on my 07 1100 Classic since 7/7/07 when I got it new. Figure around 10k on it this year. Already have the first 1.5k mapped out with a trek to the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Dragon with a few pals in May.

    I have put 800 miles on my bike since I got it in mid February.

    I'll probably put 4,000 miles on it by the end of the year.

    Put 4700 miles on my 2000 v-star. Bought it last may. I just got back from a 350 mile round trip, so the summer has started out great

    8500 on my V*13 since last June, when I purchased new. Put a total of 11,500 on last season, if you include the 3000 on the 650 I sold for the 13. That had 6500 on it between 06 and 07. Not bad for a newb, I'd say. I want to put my 13 over 20k this year.

    I had 13,500 on my Honda VTX 1300 in 18 months, and I traded it on my Raider on December 31, 2007. Since the weather here has sucked so much, I've only got 300 miles on the Raider. I know, it makes you wanna stick toothpicks in your eyeballs. WTF can I do? Kinda makes ya wanna puke. Aw hell, spring is a comin, ain't it?
