Retired after my wife passed away in '02 and now I ride all over the place. Actually the bike is 22 months old (not 20) bought it Aug. 15, 2002. Did all 48 states last year in 60 days and 21,000 miles. Will be in Grapevine in July; Northern CA in August; Tahoe 1st week of Sept; CO 2nd week of Sept; AZ in Oct; and back up to Northern CA in Nov. Should have well over 100K before Xmas. Great bike to ride, just keep changing oil and tires.

Gee, I was feeling pretty good until I saw some of these posts! :roll:

My '03 just rolled over 10,000 last Saturday. I've had it since Jan. 03. Since I'm busy most weekends, I thought I was doing pretty well, considering....

Rich, that's fantastic, especially considering where you live! I guess no one can accuse you of being a fair weather rider!
Ride safely out there, and have a great trip!
