If you live in the Seattle area, it’s probably not too hard to figure out that I love my motorcycle. I’ve been riding it every time I get the chance, and thanks to our incredible weather, I’ve had a lot of chances. Numbers always help to draw comparisons though. I had my first motorcycle for four years and I put 10,000 miles on it. The brainiacs among you will realize that I averaged 2500 miles/year. I bought this new bike in mid-Feburary. The odometer already reads 2700 miles and we’re not even halfway through the calendar year!
