How many kilometres did you ride this year?

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' at netrider.net.au started by hornet, Dec 26, 2005.

  1. The year is nearly over, and sooner rather than later the TV stations will regale us with their "That was the year that was...." specials, so it's a good enough time to ask how much mileage you achieved this year??
    Me?
    I bought the Hornet in March with 52,000 kms on it, and it now has nearly 70,000 kms, so I've done nearly 18,000 kms.
    That includes my famous (for me :p ) 1228 km jaunt to Tamworth and back, and two Netrider trips, one for the Dinner and the other for the BBQ.

  2. According to my speedo 11,000. Cant remember doing them though.

    Hornet, I'm surprised your bike isnt worn out. You must stay at home and only do long trips. I seem to do about 3-400 per weekend. They seem to add up though. Went to Johnsonville and back the other day. Speedo said 315. It counted the ks I spent lost as well.

  3. I definately didn't do enough Paul, clocked up 13000 mostly commuter kliks on my trustly 250 and have just notched up my first 500 on the new 600.

    I will hopefully get out on some Netrider roadtrips in the New Year and clock up some respectable k's.

  4. yeah, well around 5,000 of those 17,000 are made up of three long trips, and there was a 900-odd km trip I did with RC a couple of weeks after I bought the bike, but that leaves 12,000 just in fanging up to Sydney for coffees, and runs up Macquarie Pass, etc etc. I don't ride as much as I'd like, but a job in Sydney and a 200 km + per day commute leaves the end of the day and the weekends as recapturing energy times.....

  6. About 20,000 kilometres. That includes 3,000 or so in Tassie (yay!). That's a fair whack I reckon considering my commute is only about 5-6k!

  7. I got the VTR250 in September with ~8,500 on the clock, and I ticked over ~19,000 today.. :shock:

    Living down on the Peninsula is the problem. It's a 150km round trip for Friday night coffee.. :roll:

  8. Not as much as I'd like... I can't commute most days on the bike as I need to carry too much stuff, and having a family means I can't take as many days off for motorbike rides as I'd like to.

    *thinks*
    V11 had 34,000 on it now has 39,000
    Diversion had 19500 on it now has 22500
    ZRX1200R had 6500 on it now has 9000

    Ummm thats... 5000 + 3000 + 2500 = 10500

    About 500 of that would be commuting the rest is sunday rides or the gp/supers.
