Started street riding in 1965 and been pretty much a daily rider ever since. Owned 34 street bikes if I counted right, plus raced motocross from 1972-1982 so had quite a few MX bikes not listed (all Yamahas). Worked in the MC industry from 1972-1989. Since 2014 I have averaged 25,000 miles a year, but only averaged 11,000 miles a year for the 24 years before that. Before that it was probably in the 20,000 mile a year range since I was commuting by bike during that time. Didn't keep records until 2008 but since them I have kept accurate records of my mileages and which bike got ridden (had as many as 6 bikes at one time..but down to 3 now) and since 2014, how many days a year I have ridden ... (average 300 days..most was 338 in 2017, but this year I have only missed 8 days so far, so it could be a record year..potentially 357..wouldn't that be sweet). Not bad for living in a snow belt state eh?

I come from a motorcycling family. Dad rode, mom rode, out of 5 siblings all 3 of the boys and 1 of the girls rode, my wife rides, our son rides, his wife rides, their 2 sons ride, both her parents ride, all kinds of nephews and grand nephews ride, so riding is sorta normal/expected in our family.

It doesn't matter what I ride, where I ride, how fast I ride, or how far I ride... it only matters THAT I RIDE...EVERY DAY. "Ferret"
