My bike had 11,000 miles on it when I bought it this Feb. My bike is a 99' So that was almost 1300 miles per year average, close to only 110 per month.

My bike has close to 25K on it right now. I am averaging close to 1500 a month right now. And I have been taking it easy on my bike the last few months due to saving my tires for track days....lol

I agree.... I just can't see the point of having a bike and not riding it.

But choppers aren't made for riding. There was a very nice interview in one of last years Motorcyclist issues. They interviewed Orange County Choppers where they said that their bikes are not made for riders. Then the staff proceeded to crash one of the bikes during a test drive due to the inability to turn.
