2' of snow on top of 2" of ice for three first 25' of the driveway just outside the garage door with about 175' more before the road with 3" of packed snow in it with still another 800' to the barely plowed drift covered main road.

I keep track in a spreadsheet, but the two bikes currently have:

KTM 1190 Adv - 28,570 miles
KTM 530 EXC - 10,520 miles (326 hours)

My goal for 2018 is 10K miles on the 1190 (no big trips planned) and 100 hours on the 530. Lots of mixed surface, dirt roads, and trail riding in those numbers. The rear tire bill on the 1190 is going to be huge running TKC80s (or equiv). Could be the last season for both bikes if the upcoming Yamaha T7 or KTM 790 Adv are as good as they appear to be.

OK, so over the flu and weather isn't sucking and a good day to ride and do a bit of maintenance. And record mileage from start of the year.

Mine:
2015 FJR 32,117
2007 R1200GS - 41,888
2010 WR250X - 9,080
2004 Thruxton - 24,560

You guys have inspired me.

In four decades of riding, I have never tracked my mileage, beyond writing down mileage of maintenance tasks in my maintenance log. But I really have no idea how many miles I've ridden lifetime, not only because I never tracked the mileage on my personal bikes, but also because there were a few years I put more miles on test and loaner bikes than I did on my own.

So this year I created a spreadsheet (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/12OSrykLUMx6kRdy2PvUxohpqAitlA2Oxn7NuEyIBbvE/edit?usp=sharing (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/12OSrykLUMx6kRdy2PvUxohpqAitlA2Oxn7NuEyIBbvE/edit?usp=sharing)) and I'm going to track every mile I ride on two wheels. I'm hoping it will be an above-average year for me in terms of riding, but so far it's off to a snowed-in start.

For the record, here's the starting point on my personal bikes:

1997 Triumph Speed Triple     105,589
2009 Kawasaki Versys 650     80,108
2006 Triumph Daytona 675     15,450

Only a measly 5,301 miles this year. 84,452 on her now, and I think my season is done. Haven't done that few since my return to riding with my FZ6. Personal challenges have conspired with a crappy commute, but I plan to change that in 2019. I did enjoy every mile.

Don't forget about the RAIN this past year. I think that cut into everyones riding.

Not sure how many miles I did this year but I did blow up the engine on the DR650. So I have that going for me.

I did put 100 miles on the ZRX so far this year.

OK, 4010 miles this year.  None since 29 June, when I got back from Montana.

The heads came off the bike a couple days later and my guy says they're nearly done.   :mad:

Maybe a couple hundred more by the end of the year if I get the heads back.  Just enough to get to the retorque and then the bike will mostly hibernate while I play with the R100/7 that entered my world last week.

On the right:

visitors can't see pics , please register or login


The last registration expired in 1988.   :o  Dual plug heads and some San Jose BMW chassis parts!

I'm going to reanimate it and move it along for funds to fix up the RS (last registered 1985!) parked next to it.  The other bike is an R75/6 that came as part of the deal.  It's going to give up some parts to the RS and my existing /6 but may someday be a cafe or trackday special.

I'm favoring keeping the RS and moving the /7 on.  The next owner can keep the fairing or not.  Springtime, hopefully.

Started the season at 59518km
Ended at  71897km

= 12379km / 7692mi

Not great, but at least a couple thousand more than the past few years and I missed the biggest trip of the year (Eastern Owners Meet) because I started a new job and had 0 vacay time.
Next year will likely be similar as my big trip (Yosemite) I'll be hauling in a van.

Superduke   0               2,587                    2,587

I'm detecting a trend here.

I"ve pretty much accepted I"m never gonna be riding my past average of about 20K per year.  I'm good with that, as I'm getting older I'm looking forward to doing, and traveling with, a van conversion. I'll likely sell the FJR for something I can easily store on a tow rack... scooter/trail bike/Versys 300.

I have one more weekend left and I am not reading to finalize my mileage yet but I did not meet my goal. New position at work, life, and a commute of 4.8 miles round trip just did not leave much room for contributing to the odometer.

Post by: garry on December 31, 2018, 03:38:23 PM
I had a terrible year. My worst by a huge margin. I've never been under 10K for a year and usually closer to 12K. I let work eat my life despite going on a shorter (36 hr) work week so that I could have Fridays off. THAT didn't work out. Between work and the weather, I hardly got out at all. I did manage a dual sport trip to Colorado in July and was hoping to ride a LOT in the fall once my Project From Hell shipped in September. Then I wrecked the 1190, broke my leg, and that was the end of the riding season (and the 1190).

But at least I finished the season riding and not sliding down PA 453 on my ass. I did get out for a short (< 1 hr) ride on the 530 around local back roads a few days ago.

Here is my report for the year:

KTM 1190 Adventure (RIP): 2786 miles
KTM  530 EXC: 1253 miles

TOTAL: 4,039

4K!!! 4 Fucking K!!! That's it. And about a third of those were on the dirt bike. At least I'm alive to ride another day/year and have a new bad ass bike in the garage waiting to be taken to all the cool roads. I will be planning an epic twisty fix of some sort for this summer in an attempt to ride every good road in WV/VA/NC/TN/KY/OH. Or something like that.

And I think I will be keeping a eye out for a killer deal on a leftover Husky 701 Enduro. Wifey said I could only buy one bike per year. The Super Duke arrived in 2018 :-)

I put about 1,800 miles on the Wolf 150 last year. Considering I didn't do any "trips", that was a lot of grocery store runs and light local sightseeing.

Other than a new battery, and replacing a bolt that disappeared, I had zero problems with my little Taiwan made grocery getter. Averaged somewhere just south of 80 mpg while doing it too....

Sad to report ending mileage was 28840.....2661 mileage for the year. It's interesting though, it feels like so many more miles than that. Maybe it's because I have used it as my daily transport everyday since OCT but I thought it would be higher.

Many trips, just not as many miles per trip.
