Another great year of riding
« on: January 01, 2017, 08:51:43 PM »
Happy New Year NHF members.  Hope everyone had a great 2016 and will have an even better 2017.  I think all of us that are fortunate enough to own and ride a motorcycle are tremendously blessed.  Posting my mileage at the end of '16 for posterity.
 
Got in close to 7K miles this year.  No big trips, just stress reliever rides after work and weekend getaways.  Just installed a new rear tire(which I am reviewing in tire thread) and new chain and sprockets.  Had a good 100 mile ride yesterday that reminded me of how much I enjoy my NH.  Hope to go well over 100K on my 750 and then use it as a parts bike for a replacement 750.  Happy riding.

I had an excellent year of riding. I did 5,300 miles of stress relief rides. My longest ride was around 350 miles on beautiful sunny 85°F day. When I look out of my living room at the ski hill and 3 feet of snow, I miss it already. I love to ski but if I had to choose, biking would win.

Well done Hog Dog.  I actually rode less last year.  No particular reason.. :sleep:

Raven-I know a winter like that would drag on.  Hopefully you get an early Spring.
Clearview-I have been in a down trend on mileage for several years, but I sure enjoy every mile I ride.

I didn't get to ride too much this year. I missed almost a month due to a hand injury. This is my ending mileage. Only about 2300 miles for the year.

Had a great 2016 as well. No rides of epic length but I got to hang with my Nighthawk-Forum friends at the New Hamshire rally which is always a treat. I also got to ride in the Pacific NW for the first time which has been on my list of destinations for years and it didn't disappoint.


Glad everyone enjoyed their seat time last year and looking forward to a great 2017.

Slower-than-normal riding year for me this past year. Hoping for a better one in 2017.

I only put about 3000 miles on the wing and close to 16,000 on the mighty ST 1300, I'm slowing down some this year
