Who's the high mileage champion.

Post by bungie4 » Fri Jun 28, 2019 3:02 pm

Whose the high mileage champion on this forum?

Rules.

Shut up. Were not asking about your mileage on 12 different bikes. Were not asking how many miles you put on the bike. It's simple. Whose FJR has the highest mileage. 1 owner, 12 owners, how many miles on tow truck or how many deer you've hit, or in the case of JWilly, how many miles total on various FJR's. We also don't care about some guy you met in Ohio (or Michigan)

How many miles are on your current FJR.

Quickly adding up the mileage on my various bikes, I believe 400,000 miles is about what my pillion has traveled with me.

It's all a pile of bullshit anyway. Just for grins.

I know of a guy in Michigan that probably has gray ghost beat, but he don't come stopping here no mo.

If you have more than a 100,000, you need to post up. I remember, 'over there', somebody did up mileage badges. A 100k is an accomplishment. Especially for a bunch of posers like this crowd 😂

This poll is like chicken strips on your tires. By and large, the mileage on your bike doesn't mean diddly shit.

On my old 2007, I had right around 185,000 miles. Would have over 200,000 miles on it by now but I sold it (still in great running condition) when I came across a fantastic deal on a well farkled newer FJR. On my recently purchased 2011, there is a very modest 56,000 miles of which I did around 22,000 since I got it just over a year ago. Probably another two years (maybe three) before I get to the 100,000 mile mark.
