Well I have only owned a bike for a little over 2 years... of which about 9 months of that was spent with the bike broken for one reason or another. The remaining 11 months were spent on the track mostly with quite a few street miles.

I checked my odometer and I have ridden about 8000 miles... and I am by no means a great rider but I do alright for myself. I chalk that up to the track experience I have.

Mileage wise, I would guess around 200,000 between dirt and street.

Just slightly more than one year and about 6000 miles.

I love it, and try to find ways to improve all the time. I know very well that I have almost no skill. Only one track day. Lots of commuting/touring miles.

I was riding 3 years before the invention of the wheel. Yeah, it was tough but me and my crew from the hood scrounged up smooth rocks anywhere we could. We were kinda poor, ya know. Most of the time we had to make due with used rocks other people threw away. We'd spend days pounding them to fit our bikes. Then we'd all sit around the local quarry wearing our Joe Rock jackets lookin cool. We didn't even know what horsepower meant, but we didn't care. We had fun. Ya know, ya didn't even need gas back in those days, but the steeper the hill - the more fun it was. Whiny riders today hafta have all that extra nonsense like gas and engines. The true spirit of the biker has been lost.

Been on 2 since the summer of 69.

I would say about 80,000-100,000 miles. Hard to calculate how many miles all those years of dirt riding are.

There's a point at which trying to tally miles/hours exceeds memory... it's easier to say, that I might have put 200 miles on my car/truck in the last year.
