When I just had the Panigale (or earlier sports bikes) I would average about 3k to 3.5k miles a year.

Now I have the Scrambler too I will more than likely double that figure as the Classic will give me options to ride when I wouldn't do so on a sports bike. I may even do more if we get nice winter days and the heated grips arrive in time ;)

How many biking miles will you do on average?

About 7-8,000 miles a year across my 3 bikes. Maybe more now that I have the Scrambler :grin:

I will be riding most of the year... except when icing conditions are likely... based on the first two months of Scrambler riding I will probably ride about 5000 per year.

I won't know until the snow files here in Minnesota, but I've done 4800 miles on my Scrambler since April 28th, which is 15 weeks. Depending on how nice fall is, I'm guessing I'll have my first valve job before winterizing the thing. It helps that it's been an amazingly beautiful summer here in MN this year.

What kind of word is winterizing? Lol
Ha! That strange ritual is the act of preparing your summer toys to go into a deep sub zero degree hibernation for almost 6 months. It mostly involves putting Sea Foam in your gas, taking it for a short ride, and then plugging in the battery tender. It's also a good time to stock up on whiskey.

I think you've been BS'erizing ;)

Done 3800 miles since June, so I'm guessing around 8000 a year. I commute everyday on mine but it's my summer trips that pile the mileage on.

I'm possibly going to Italy next year, so could be hitting the major service sooner, rather than later.

Done my CBT at the end of June and since then done 2000 miles. Also now onto the 600cc lessons with test (Mod 1) at the end of August.
Really enjoying the 65 mile commute on the little bike so can foresee a good number of "cold season" miles getting done (Not sure I'll use the Scrambler, when I get it, in winter so may keep the little bike for that).

Where do you find the time Tony. That's averaging 75 miles a day!
I ride every single day - motorcycles are my only mode of transportation.

Plus, I travel pretty extensively.

Winter in Philly?
Winters in Philly are not that bad, we get very view days with snow, all things considered. That's when it's time for this...

No... Just a joke. But I do ride almost every single day, only exceptions are days with snow on the ground, which last year numbered about 12.
