it seems to me that cars that are the same age as motorcycles have significantly more kilometers on the odometer, for example looking at used bikes from the mid/late 90's 250cc rides often has sub 30/40,000km's (not counting summoto rides, that's another story) a car of this age would generally have double that, or so it seems to me. you often see the terms 'only used for week-end riding' or 'never ridden in the rain' this leaves me thinking, what is the average number of km's learners/probationary riders clock up before moving onto a higher capacity bike? if a zzr250 from 1995 has 40,000km's, and has had 6 owners in that time (a little under 2 years each) that's around 6,500km's per rider. atm i'm doing 1,000km a month, so i should of done around 12-15,000km's at the end of my restrictions. how did you find the transition to a bigger bike and did you have a lot of km's under your belt at the time? any thoughts on why bikes have lower km's on them in general?
