How many miles (or km) do you put on in a year?

Just wondering..

How on your KLR and how many total on all your bikes in an average year?

Lump in what types of riding you do by percentage, too.

I'm at 12,200 right now over 2 1/2 years. I'd guess 85%on and 15%off road. Would be much more off road if I had decent places to ride.

Only owned one for 3 weeks but 1500 so far. I was thinking about how new I am to riding and also realized thats more than a lot of cruiser guys put on in a year. But I guess I've got the ridin' bug bad.

Well I've been riding for almost 3 months and I've put almost 2000 miles on the bike, so that equates to about 8000 miles in a year, down here in TX (probably won't be here another whole year tho).

My 07 Black/Silver KLR came home 4/09/2007 and has 12,500 miles and zero problems. I way behind schedule to repeat the 10k I did last summer as I moved 30 miles closer to work.
