How many miles did you ride in 2013?

I'm wondering how many miles you rode in 2013. I don't mean the mileage contest, I'm talking about how many miles you rode in the calendar year.

I rode 17,500 miles on two wheels last year.

Re: How many miles did you ride in 2013?

Just a little over 11k on the LT, and about 1500 on my new 07 f800s.

Have the itch to ride today, but 20 degrees and snow in forecast.

Surprisingly, I rode the exact number of miles to get me where I needed to be!

5200 on the Bicycle, under 1000 on the LT. Just waiting for my new RT and the miles should get back to my annual average of 30-40 K per year. Weather is always a factor from mid November through Mid March in this neck of the woods.

Re: How many miles did you ride in 2013?

11,820 - which is more than I would have guessed before I checked my records just now. Working out of town all year meant I didn't have my usual 350 miles/week commute on the LT. I guess all those trips from New Orleans to Texas RTEs added up!

Re: How many miles did you ride in 2013?

I've got 25k+ miles in '13.
This is a record by quite a bit for me. I think my next biggest year was 16,000.
So, I have had my new 2012 RT just over a year. This must have had something to do with it!

15000 on my new to me 2011 RT. Loving the new wheels. My LT was a fine bike but the RT is better suited to my current needs.

+1 on that. Work requires I use the company vehicle which gets around 17K/yr while my LT gets less than 4K/year.

21,953 miles, I only had two out of state trips this year & my ride to work is now 36 miles round trip instead of the 60 miles my other job was. I rode to work every day except one.

About 21,000 km or around 13,000 miles and I wished that I had the time for more miles but life gets in the way.

That's interesting, John. In reality, we may be even closer to the same mileage because I based my reply on the first and last fill-ups of the year (as opposed to noting the actual odometer reading on 1/1 and 12/31), so those numbers are very close but not precise. My first gas stop was on 1/12/13 and I'll bet I rode a few miles before then.

It is easier to have it checked if you put it on a forum. Someone always will point out any math errors. LOL

This has been a good year... Iron Butt Rally... The Dragon... Now the FJR is sold and the LT adventures begin...

'03 Yamaha FJR: 67,701 to 103,488 = 35,789 miles (sold 12/13)
'08 Kawasaki KLR: 36,763 to 40,892 = 4129 miles (purchased 9/13)
'01 BMW K1200LT: 73,969 to 75, 432 = 1463 miles (purchased 11/13)
