Read this thread but it's took me 'til now to check my mileage.

Bought my 1150gs in April week before the Boil. I've since clocked up 4,200 miles.

Must be enjoying it as I only ride for pleasure (works van).

I know a few guys with sports bikes that only ride when the suns out, can't blame them for thst, 170bhp and wet roads don't mix well. They do run older bikes for the other times though, makes sense to me.

But, as long as we all enjoy every mile, however many, that's what counts.

I like to leave my bikes in the garage. The air filters make great beds for the critters. :whistle:

Without a doubt the best part of work for me at the moment is the 60 mile round trip on my bike :lol:

Hi,

Your pic looks like Blue Hills / MCC Lands End Trial, this year?

Kudos for doing it on a proper bike.
