2016 Mileage Contest
« on: January 01, 2016, 04:31:45 PM »
Anybody care to play?  Post up a photo of your bike odometer(s) with a receipt, newspaper, etc dated 1/1/16 or later.  No prizes, just fame, glory and bragging rights.

I don't have receipts, but the odo said 10,803 when I left home yesterday morning.

What is your starting Mileage for 2016?
I will add mine tonight when I get home.
Lofty Goals Possibly May Be Reached
Modest Goals Possibly May Not.

I ended up with somewhat fewer miles than last year. I didn't get in any long trips or IBA rides. Other than the trip to the Dragon Raid, I didn't get more than 90 miles from the house on a bike all year. I picked up a 1966 Chevy C-10 pickup that absorbed many weekends this year as well (not to mention some commuting miles.)

2010 Bonneville start: 102,640
                               end: 118,970
                              total: 16,330

2014 HD Street Bob start: 25,092
                                      end: 37,225
                                     total: 12,133

Total for both bikes : 28,463 miles.

I also got in a few hundred miles on my newest toy, a 1965 Honda 305 Dream. The odometer wasn't working for most of those, so I'm unable to document that mileage.

Versys --->   17,915 - 10,803 = 7,112
KLR --->   3,395 - 0 = 3,395

Total for year = 10,507

That's a low year for me.  Hopefully I can get more miles in 2017.

I'm in!  I haven't gotten to ride either of my bikes yet this year, so I'll go out and snap pics of both odometers.  The house restoration is almost done, and I'm really hoping to get more riding time this year!

This the ending mileage after the Last Ride of the Year. Bike has been parked since. Remember we bought the bike in April 2017.  Also there was some down time after September.

OK, this is a follow-on to the past two years' contests:  I don't have a receipt or other time stamp for this photo, but here's my speedo when I got ready to ride from Huntsville to Barber Motorsports this morning.  I've barely ridden 500 miles since Jan 1st, so this morning's pic is basically the start of my riding year.

 Hoping to keep this thread going, because there are many ride stories contained within the miles that will accumulate over this year! :)
