typo I would say,got bike on 10 29 2011,my Butt was sore after 1538 miles 1n 36hr.Imagine 10,000 in 3 days LOL.
All good points. I wasn't inferring that thr ones who ride the most have the most fun. That of course is a purely perdonal and subjective opinion to each individual ridI was making reference to the riders that I may randomly encounter that are all decked out in thier well-worn pirate outfits, scraggly hair, 2-day beard-lets, and several skull rings and such that espouse the the "true biker" ethos that they "live to ride" or "ride or die", insinuating that they practically live on the bike.To then find out that they put around 1000 miles a year on thier bikes in a place like Floridajust seems funny to me. I guess I would classify those guys as "posers". Mostly I've seen these types at Bikeweek and Biketoberfest.
One of my fully decked out Harwee owners at work has a 2000 Dyna Wide Glide that he bought when I bout my 2000 Drifter. Since then Ive ridden, according to the odos on that and my 2 big Yamahas, a total of 191,000 miles. He has a whole whopping 5,000 on his now and is almost ready for his second oil change.
I guess I am just lucky to have picked the right bike. I am never in discomfort riding it, and can easily do 50-100 miles between stops. My longest single-day ride was a leisurley 300+ mile ride without trouble.I love this bike!
