How many miles so far this year?

Postby Luvs2Play » March 21st, 2011, 3:13 pm

The wife and I have each put 1250 miles on each of our bikes since Jan 1 in Nebraska. She just started riding the end of July last year and has almost 7,000 miles down. Since we both work together, she wants to ride her bike the 20 miles each way to town every day while I take the truck and trailer.

I live in tropical SW Florida. Who's counting? I did do 500 miles on January 1 for lunch.

you all are doing better than most of us in this region!

I am barely over 500 miles this year!

I bought a new house last year and even though it saves on my gas $, it kills me on the commute.

I now live 1.1 miles away from work. 4 minutes in rush hour traffic! :D

You all are out by Hastings right? We should try and get together at some point.

Southwest of Hastings. We just went to Star in Lincoln last week, they had some really good prices compared to around here. The wife thinks she wants a new bike already. Rode out past Lexington yesterday, we're running out of local places to go, she has horses to take care of so we can't be gone for very long at a time. When I lived in Omaha, I put a lot of miles on my bike, Lived out by Sapp Bros. and worked at 50th & Ames and Bellevue. All I had was the bike, rode all year round.


It helps that we take the winter off and get to ride on decent days. It was 34 degrees when we left the other day, went down to Kansas to just get some time in, was nearly 70 at noon.

This past weekend the wife and i took the wing for a little ride. When we pulled into the driveway the trip meter said 888.8 miles.
Great weather and a great ride, glad spring is here at last [redwing]

I'm just gettin started this year...we have finally gotten out from under the perma cloud. I've only got about 300 miles this year, I consider it a good start to a long, butt numbing season!

Me and my wife have each logged about 500 miles so far this year, thunderstorms and family obligations have kept us from riding more.

Just my one little ride I mentioned a month or so back, since then...I started mine once while on the bike stand, of course it didn't have an air cleaner cover on it so I only left it run for 5 seconds.

Bad year for me. Had an accident in August of last year which kept me off the bike until Feb of this year. Middle of winter so hasn't been very many days to ride. But I would guess I have around 700 miles this year. 8-)
