My best month of riding ever....
I left WI for 3-4 month interim ministry position in CO, took the long route (2900 miles), and since arriving have ridden another 3000 miles (2 up). Finding the weather and roads incredible, it's been easy to be out of the office most days piling up more miles on the LT (101,200). When I realized the last time I changed tires, brakes it was the beginning of this season, and have ridden nearly 18000 miles! Both are being done this week. Here is why I love riding this bike;
56.4 mpg combined riding highway/mountain roads/commuting
Last time it was tuned up was over 40000 miles ago (plugs, etc)
Only repair during that time was final drive, which didn't leave me stranded, but close!
I guess my question is do others have this kind of life on their tires, or mileage results? They both seem high to me, and according to the maintenance schedule I should have had 3 tune ups! (I will tear it down when I get home to WI in a few months and do that myself)
I've done an Iron Butt, taken some long rides, but I'm still thrilled that we had this month of riding in one of the most amazing places-special thanks to Steve Farson for his book-it's wearing out figuring out our next ride!
Thrilled to be in CO.
