21,675 miles total
13,113 on the Vulcan 750-mileage 1/1/10 at 43,664
5,647 on the XT225-mileage 1/1/10 at 12,837
2,043 on the Rebel 250-mileage 1/1/10 at 7,869
873 on the Vino 125-mileage 1/1/10 at 2931

Does not include a few hundred dirt miles on the XR400, it has no odometer

This is one of the lowest years for me for mileage in a long time. Had a lot of problems, (NMR) didn't have much time, or the inclination to ride. Jerry.

Oh well, if you are going to count quads, I put a few hundred miles on my '07 Honda TRX250TE (electric shift), that I bought brand new last April. I keep planning to take it up north and try it out in the snow, but haven't gotten around to it yet, and likely won't, this winter anyway. It is a great alternative to a dirt bike as I get older.

Vulcan 750 - about 3200 miles
Vulcan Mean Streak - about 1000 miles

Now that I feel very comfortable on both bikes I plan on really racking up the miles this season. I'm still riding now but no where near as much as I plan to when the weather's nicer. Speaking of which, Winter Solstice is over ladies and gents. The days are already getting longer...
