Finally got my first 10k

Well I finally got my own 10,000 miles on the bike on my ride into work this morning. Bought the bike last year in February with 19,500 and hit 29,500 on the way in this morning.

Looking forward to the next 10,000. Hopefully with more riding in the mountains rather than mostly just commuting.

I'm about 2 weeks from hitting the 20,000 mark on the bike. Only 8,000 will be mine, and I'm looking forward to plenty more.

actually the very first thing I did when I bought it was put brand new tires (Metzler ME880's) on it and they are holding up pretty good. I think I could probably get another 10,0000 out of them before habing to replace.
