How many miles are you riding?

I got my Vulcan in Feb 09 and so far have 8200 miles on it. What are the rest of you all at? I know I ride a lot...

I picked up my baby on 4/24/09, and I've got 4200 on her so far. I keep thinking I need to slow down a bit, but then the sun rises, and...

I commute on the bike though, PLUS throw in the weekend day trips.

I got my 1600 Nomad mid April and have almost 6000 miles on it now... I think this is normal pace for us as far as the bikes go. I have a 2002 car that only has 67,000 miles on it now used to be I'd have over 100k on a car before it was paid off in 4 years

I bought mine last September and I just turned over 7600 miles this weekend. This past WV winter kept me off the bike a lot more than I had hoped.

I have been keeping track since April 1st. So far 6,500 since then. I bought the bike with 900 miles in March 08 and have 14,000 on the odometer now. I am riding much more this season.

I typically ride on the weekends only.

Got mine on May 1st, I'll have over 5,000 miles on it by the end of the day today. It's been a great summer for riding in the midwest...
