On Dec 10, 2007, I bought an '03 Suzuki SV1000 naked with 21,555 miles. Today, I turned 71,000 and some miles on her. So, I'm around 500 miles, or about 4 tanks of gas from hitting 50,000 of MY miles on this beauty. In four years. That's an average of 12,500 miles per year.
Average, mind you. That 21,555 it already had on it? I doubled it in
eleven months. She's taken me from Austin to Dallas, Del Rio, Lake Corpus Christi, Seguin, and on many rides through the Texas Hill Country, not to mention a lot of adventurous urban riding in Austin itself. Financial downturns stopped me from traveling as much
after that first year, but I still ride to work nearly every day. I
don't need an excuse to ride to work, I need a damn good reason to drive
the truck before I'll leave the bike at home.
Ride 'em, don't hide 'em!
