What else do you ride? My stable of bike.
« on: July 12, 2015, 01:36:05 pm »
I have been averaging 25,000 miles a year for the past 6 or so years.  Up from about 10,000 a year when we still had kids at home.

Here is my stable prior to swapping the Concours for the Trophy.

I too Average around 25,000 a year. Probably be less this year as southern Ohio seems to have developed a tropical monsoon season. So far we are averaging 1 day a week with no rain. It is to the point now we just put on the suits and ride in the rain.

Sorry TWA, it's classified information  :001:

Anyway, I couldn't afford the Road Tax bill for your stable over here! :033:

I can't justify more than two bikes at a time to my family. Actually I can't even justify that so I should more properly say I can't get away with more than two at a time :008:
My other bike is a Triumph Sprint 955 ST.  I will never sell that one as it is the bike that helped me fulfill my dream of riding to Alaska

azgman, my wife picked those up on a trip to Iron Pony in Columbus. They are just a small zippered pouch made by Rapid Transit. They have two velcroe straps that wrap around the grab rails and can be removed in seconds. She uses them to keep small items at hand while riding. Gum, small tube of sunscreen, tissues, gloves, anything she thinks she can jam in there. She likes having them handy and I like being able to remove them quickly for a solo trip. Long story short, they are a "momma happy" item.

To register, insure, and pay road tax for ALL the bikes cost me $100 a month.  I don't have cable TV (which cost around $100 a month) so I see it as money well spent for my entertainment.  It is nice living in Tennessee.  No state income tax, low property tax, more money in my pocket for my hobby.
