    My riding is all over the map, as well. When I first got Betty I was just making my business tick. Then my wife had surgery. Then things picked up. Then she blew her knee out and had more surgery.

    But I found some old inheritance money, they invented the 48, and now I had a 'scooter' to do quick, short, cheap rides I could squeeze in anywhere, and anytime.

    Wisconsin has roughly a six month riding season. If my average is reflected like the last two years, I'll do +8K as a total for the two bikes per season. With an average taken over the last ten years, it would drop.

    How that figures over +40 years, I have no idea.

    Not enough..

    I've been doing about 6k a year the last 3 yrs. Prior to that, family responsibilities and priorities kept it lower: 2 -3 k/yr

    Around 25 to 30k a year. A benefit of being able to ride year round.:s

    I live 6 mi from work. 3 months of the summer is too hot and wet for me to ride recreationally, but ride back and forth to work when it is not likely to rain on me. I put around 10K on per year.

    Enjoy,

    Only a pitiful 7,000 this year due to alot of things going on right now. In the past I have always tried for 10,000 or more. Hopefully next year will be better.
