How many miles this year?

Hey folks, just wondering how many miles you guys have put on your bikes this year. I got a late start in mid-June and only live a couple miles from work and didn't get to take any real good long trips, but I still managed to put on almost 4,000 miles. And loved every foot of it! Not too bad for a first ridin season, albeit short. How much did you put on?

Peace and open roads
-Paul

I had a decent year,I didn't get to ride as much as I would like,People keep calling and wanting me to do stuff I don't like(work).But I did manage to put 6500 on the 750 and little over 2000 on the 1500 so far but I'm not finished yet I hope.

I don't use mine to commute to work I have to haul too much Junk around with me to work with

Same here, but I would guess around 8k. To and from work mostly. I don't get the chance to get out much being that I have to watch my daughter on the weekend while the fiance is at work. Grandma watches her all week, so she's usually not very willing to watch her on a Saturday for me unless I have really good reason, and "to go ride the twisties" is not a good reason lol. Needing to go to Lance's house to get something done to the bike, that's a good enough reason that my fiance uses often as lie so her mother will watch our daughter. I tell her not to lie(I swear on my own mother's life), but she says it's the only way she'll watch her and she wants me to get out of the house and go ride.
