    10,000 miles!

    So I looked down at one of the trip odometers on my Connie after a trip home from work, and it said 7001 miles... the odometer was set the day I bought it. Then I walked over to my 454 and it's odo had precisely 3000 on it since purchase... hmm a little math... that's 10,000 miles since receiving my M license in late July last year!

    Couldn't have done it without the help, support and motivation of this forum! Thank you!

    Good on ya! I'm creeping up on 40k on the second bike I've rolled that far, and I still learn new stuff all the time. I started as a beginner back on this forum's predecessor, and have bumbled my way along ever since. While I'm fairly experienced compared to the average member on a beginner forum, there are people here that have WAY more miles under their belts than I do... and they'll tell you they're still learning too.

    Keep riding, and keep posting about it!
