    If you had to guess, how many miles do you think you put on motorized bikes in a year?
    Might be a hard thing to pin down I know, no odometers, seasonal riding, bad weather or maybe ya don't bother keeping track. But still I'm curious, if you had to take a stab at it, say average miles in a month....times the number of months you get to ride, what would your guesstimate be for any given one year period?

    As a year-round daily driver I run jus' about four thou in the summer and 2 in the winter, less this past winter 'cause it was a brutal one heh - I use a lil 'Garmin Geko 201' GPS that I've had fer years for speed/distance, they're sweet & simple units that can be had fer about $80, I defo recommend one w/the only "problem" is that it uses two lil AAA batteries w/o a jack for an external power supply - so you'd wanna get rechargeables ofc.

    Being a daily year-round rider I rack up thousands of miles a year, usually 8,000-10,000 miles between two different bikes. I use a Garmin "Legend" GPS and have been for years now, a very reliable instrament thats accurate as well.

    I ride daily, but the last 2 years I really haven't had to ride far for anything. It's all short jaunts, and some days I only ride 3 miles. I've put 800 miles on my bike so far this year, most of it's just a lil pleasure cruisin :D

    Thanks Aleman, that's the kind of input I was looking for and I know exactly what you mean. I live in a place where everything I need is a mile away in one direction.
