Default So how did I do?

I have been riding a year this month.

I have ridden 4054 miles; the longest ride was 99 miles.
I have ridden in the sun, rain, night, and a hurricane(well sort-of).
I have had a few minor emergency maneuvers: car x 1; deer x 1; turkey x 2; motorcycles x 3 and have not yet dropped my bike.
I have performed a few mods: windscreen, lowers, mustang seat, honest abe exhaust mod, and more.

... and the smile has still not left my face.

Doing good but if I lived in Florida I would be around 12 to 15K. Maybe next year the milage will go up.

Keep that head rotating like Linda Blair in the exorcist and you shouldn't have any problems.

Going well, but I must ask, was the mustang seat worth it? I am about to buy one myself.

Longest ride was 99 miles? I'll ride farther than that just to eat lunch. You live in FL and can ride year round - 4000 miles isn't much. I rode 3600 the first week of October when I took a road trip to Oklahoma.
