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.

2008 Suzuki C50

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


I'm working on being politically correct. But its going take a VERY VERY LONG TIME

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.

If you ain't gliding, you ain't riding!
