My Bike Has Less Miles Than It's Suppose To Have

I got my bike last month, 06, R6 with 5530 miles.

today while riding, i was perplexed at the fact that i was doin 90mph and was being passed by everything on the road.

was trying to figure out what was up and then noticed i was on Km/h not mph.

so i get home, changed the speedometer to mph and the odometer changes as well.

so my bike now has 3477miles onm the odometer and not 5597.

just felt like sharing

thanks for reading.

It's pretty funny it took you a month to realize how far off your speedo was! I bet you were like, wow, this fugger gets to 180 quick. Shazam.

i have only rode the bike around my subdivision for like 25km whic i thought was 25miles and i was stunned by how fast it got to 90 once but did not really think much of it. today was the first time i took it on the road so i had all the other cars zooming past me for reference

neither did i. i have been playing with the odometer switch. so when i got home tonight, the first thing i tried was press and hold the select button with which i change the odometer and it worked. it changed tthe speedometer and then i saw the correct miles and was like "holy chit"
