    The Ole girl

    My 2007 Suzuki C50 Boulevard did a milestone at lunch a few minutes ago: Got my money's worth out of her....that is miles, not KMs.

    Heh, that is good, and good for you! Until i came here i had never even heard of a motorcycle making it even half of what i see you guys all do. Incredible, i am just a couple of hundred shy of the 20k mark for myself! That was my goal for this riding season, at least before the snow flys here! :{)

    I've never put that kind of miles on all my bikes combined. I'm probably somewhere around 75-80k combined street miles between all the bikes I have had. But....if we were to include all the miles I put on dirtbikes and motocross bikes (mainly driven on back roads and dirt roads), then it would probably tip the total over 100k. Lol

    Either way, 100k miles on a single bike is a LOT of time in the saddle!

    The day I listed my 2005 ST1300 for sale I took these pictures. It had 1875 on the odometer on 2/6/2006 when I brought it home. I saw my bike three days ago - it has 198,xxx miles on it now.The Ole girl-img_2510-jpgThe Ole girl-img_2504-jpg

    Dear lord, that's a crap ton of miles! Daily commuter? I wish I had more time to ride. I have rode my Nomad to work for the past 12 work days in a row, but only about 50 miles round trip. It had 13k miles on it when I bought it over 4 hrs ago, and getting close to 27k now LOL. Of course I have had a few other bikes I've ridden too while owning the Nomad, but still feels like I've ridden it an awful lot to have only put 13k miles on it in 4 yrs.

    Before my big crash, I put 20k miles on a ZX10R in 3 yrs and 1 month I bought new, also having one other bike during that time. And I felt like we rode ALL THE TIME back then. I can't imagine clocking 100k on a single bike.

    No commuting. All recreational riding on weekends and vacation trips. A few times in 12 years I rode it to work. ST1300s are sport tourers and easy to ride long distances.
