Well the ciphering is complete. I try to keep my spreadsheet up to date after each ride but it doesn't always happen. Sometimes I just wait until the end of the month rolls around and take inventory totals then. Maintenance items, oil changes, valve adjustments, new tires, etc. are all entered. Chain lubes and tire pressure checks are not.
I knew the totals were going to be smaller and sure enough, they are. This was the least I've ridden since I returned to helmet-wearing back in 2004. This season there were no big trips, nothing more than a couple of long weekends and the trend this year at the rallies was to ride less and talk more. There were a couple of months when I wasn't feeling too well and that put a damper on riding as well.
Even with all of that, it was a good riding year and I'll announce right here and now that miles ridden next season will be greater.
So here's the list of machines presently sleeping in the garage, listed by age.
1962 Honda C105 Trail Bike, 55cc
1970 Honda SL100, 100cc
1982 BMW RT100, 980cc
1983 Honda Ascot VT500FT, 500cc
1992 Yamaha TW200, 200cc
2000 Ducati ST2, 944cc
2004 Honda Helix CN250, 250cc
2007 Yamaha Morphous, 250cc*
2010 Hyosung GT250R, 250cc*
1975 Honda CB200, 200cc This one runs but doesn't go, at least not until the Cafe Project is complete.
So those are the bikes that were ridden or could have been ridden and below are the miles totaled, from least to most. These totals don't necessarily line up with the list above.
The resulting total mileage is 8691 combined. My biggest year since 2004 was just a fraction over 17K, almost double the miles ridden this year. Considering that I now often average 35mph instead of 60+, I think I did quite well. Now if we could just get our auto driving miles/year down into this range.......that would be worthy of celebration.
* The last two items in each list DO correlate
