What was your total mileage for the year 2004 ?
For the past 10 years I was averaging 2K on my Yamaha Sportbike.
Only rode in perfect (warm) weather for short trips...
Now that I own a BMW RT I ride year round .
And ride longer trips to Rallies,etc.
The bike is just a bit more comfortable to sit on all day !!
I rode over 13 K this year...
