At least it's not a garage queen.

Great job!

I remember the year I had 729 miles between inspections. This year between 2 wheelers and 3 wheels about 6500. Not bad for an old head.

Not bad, my 2015 Ultra just rolled over 43,000 miles, and only 2 trips out of state.

Still not putting as many miles as I would like but it's enough. I told myself if it just sat in the garage I was going to sell it. I don't have the time / freedom to take the longer trips I'd like to but eventually I may. I'd like to be able to ride as much as some of you and my retired friends. A few of them do 3 or 4 10-day trips a year plus weekend rides and group Wednesday rides. It helps living in Florida.

My son is wanting a bike and was shocked to see so many bikes with less than 1000 miles per year on them. He thought over 10k was too many miles for a bike...

10k on a BMW touring machine isn't even really broken in. Might be able to say they same about most of the big touring bikes.

This year none of mine have moved, inspection will show however many miles it takes to get there.

Living in New England riding season is extremely short. Try to ride as much as I can, weather depending.

If you happen to look on AccuWeather at the temps down here you would think I have it pretty good. It warms up for rain quits raining it is 56. I know that would be a heat wave where you live, but I got use to the mild temps and it feels quite cold to me. If I had the bucks I would live on the coast of Maine in the summer and Florida in the winter.

Last I read Florida's population goes up by 4 million in winter with the onslaught of the "snowbirds... One can tell the difference in the crowded roads in winter, but traffic in Florida sucks year round and it just keeps getting worse...... TOO MANY PEOPLE..

Yes; you can really tell when the snowbirds arrive...especially in Orlando, which is the worst traffic I have ever seen anywhere. And...I've driven the Brooklyn-Queens expressway & The Cross-Bronx.

Our crowds come for the summer months not as crowded as FL thankfully. We have 80° water temps and they flock to the beach like they go to the Jersey shore. Gas prices rise too.
