That makes me so jealous, I feel like kicking Chris in the nuts.






Wait, I ALWAYS feel like booting him in the dingleberries.

Motorcycle riding, for me, is a Hobby. One of many I have. So I have to make time for it. That means most times leaving the house on Saturday/Sunday morning at 5:30 am

Most weekends, I can leave the house...do a 200 mile round trip and get back to the house before the wife even wakes up!

I wake up at 4:30 all week. I'm sleeping until 8:00 on weekends!

Once school starts back up, my wife will be working on my off Fridays. Those are deemed bike or SRT play days!

I'm up at 5:00 am during the week, so I just do the same on the weekends. Always been an early bird. Works out better in the hot summer months, especially!

Got my bike in January and it has 10,700 miles on it. I didn't even have it in the month February because it was in the shop after my low-side. I think I ride quite a bit.

I looked at the first 6 street bikes in the F/S section, on avg 3000mi a yr


Is that really riding?

:eek: kekeke
I'm GLAD there are people like that... keeps nice bikes in the used market. I mean, who ISN'T happy to buy an '09, in late '13, with ~300miles on it!

Or my Ninja 650r, which was ~1500miles, 4 years after purchase. Then I can rack up the miles (~34k in 2 years).

Same thing when I see a little old lady in an Impala SS, or a mid-life crises vette.... that's gonna make an AWESOME car for some hotrodder some day.

I used to ride to school at 6am when it was 30 degrees outside. lol

Now, I'm like, that, 55 is my cut off. lol Honestly, I don't mind riding in the heat. But to put all my gear on to ride to work which is now only 5 min away, I don't do it most of the time. I just drive my car.
