135,001km and probably parked for winter, except for the odd ride. It was a short season for me this year after fracturing my L3 vertebra last March 13th. Riding season didn't start until June, usually I start mid-March or April.
I hope everyone has a short mild winter.

I just looked at the Roadster's Odometer and it's reading 99,392 miles. that's 159955 kilometers. Since it's now winter, I don't know if it'll turn over 100k before spring. I'll only be riding locally and those will be just errand running, so the mileage won't be climbing a whole lot. But you never know; we might get a warm winter, and I might break through before then.

We'll see.

4 years & 40k miles & on an island no less. If you are still young enough to be working, I'm impressed, Glamazon. My '09 is at 92k, but I've been retired & on pension for 15 years.

Good for you. I'm sure you will enjoy doing your own thing, in your own time. I know I do.

My bike is a 2015, and its one solid ride away from 8k miles.
