1550mi and I've had it for three weeks. Thinking of making the trip down Hwy 1 from San Francisco to LA in a few weeks. Looking for fun local rides to start doing.

I'm averaging about 900 miles a month. I'd love to ride more but can't fit ti in. I don't have a job where I commute.

I'm getting about 1000-1500 miles a month riding, but I do split it between this and my 2012 CBR250R (FUN little bike!). So it'll be about a year for me. Sigh. Still enjoying it though!

I thought I rode a lot. I can see that others ride as much or more. I've got 12500 on mine. Purchased May 15th 2012. Been having to use the gerbings a few days lately.

So far I'm at about 42,500 km or a bit over 26,300 miles. (Way less than the 35,000+ miles I did last year. When you are single and not attached to anyone you sure can do a lot more riding! [I'm not even remotely complaining!!!!]) Odds are I won't get much more in this year but the bike is ready to ride any day.


2006 DL650: 202,000 km 125,500 miles,
2012 DL650 139,500+ km, 86,700+ miles. Sold.
2015 DL1000 New July 2015 70,000+ km, 43,500+ miles.

This can help preventing from cars pulling out in front of you (SMIDSY)

Are you retired? If I was I'd get my passport and head down to Mexico, today.

2005 Suzuki SV1000R, 1985 Yamaha XT608N, 2012 Suzuki DL650AL2, over 25,000 miles already!

Between the two Glees that I've owned, I've just hit 10,000 miles, but the first was totaled after 3300mi, so I'll claim the milestone later.
