    2020 mileage!

    Each year I keep a running total of my biking mileage on a calendar in my workshop, it's not super accurate but it's ok so for 2019 I covered just over 9000 miles on both bikes "F800st and the S1000xr" most of it on the xr.👍

    I've just totalled up 2020 and it's come out at 3500😲😭😲😭😠😭😲😫😫😫😫😡😠  PS: this includes 60 miles on a track day on the XR!!
    As I teach CBT's two days a week on the F800 and do 30 miles for a CBT this is SH!T!!!! :230:

    I've done 2k miles in two week Holiday in France on the XR most years.
    After over thirty + years behind the bars, there's still lots to do and see.

    I've gone down from about 10000 miles in 2019 to 3,500 miles in 2020. Just hoping I get to tour more in 2021.

    You’ll have to excuse me for the wry smile but we are all in the same boat, in common parlance we just have ‘To suck it up’

    With 6 motorcycles, 2 cars and a van between 2 of us we currently spend our time dog walking and riding mountain bikes but hey ho.

    As for tripping about Europe...had my sorry ‘our’ old much modded 955 Tiger going today running like a good’un we’ve done Barcelona/Birmingham in 16 hours and that includes the ferry crossing.

    I'm reduced to taking the bike and the car out the garage once a week and idling them in the driveway for 15 minutes each.....no mileage here  :008: :008:
