How Often Do You Ride?

Well I'm not a Victory owner, but I have a question for all those who are, I have found that the amount I ride a bike is directly proportional to how much fun I have while I'm on it. For instance, I owned a Honda Shadow until I traded it for a Suzuki SV650 about a week ago. I generally rode the Honda about once a week on average, but since I've gotten the Zuke I've ridden it every single day, it's just that much more fun. So, my question for you guys is, how often do you ride your Victory?

I ride almost every day, mostly back and forth to work all year long. I do this cuz I love to ride. I wish I could ride more longer rides but I have young kids and I just can't. I do use little tricks though. When we go somewhere as a family (to include my brother in laws kids) me and him take the bikes and the wives get the van. Works well for all of us. I have put approx 10000 miles a year on it sense I have ones it. I still take it out to go nowhere at times just to ride with a smile my bother in law rids a ninja 1000. He has said if I rode a sport bike he might not be able to keep up. I ride like I stole it.

Since I picked up my Vic I ride as much as I can. I had to let it sit since it was due for an oil change and the dealer was closed yesterday, it was a long day.

Everyday unless it's raining. That's about 341 days a year in Southern California.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

I try to ride everyday. I use it like a car and only use my truck when I have large items to transport. Some of friends use all types of excuses why they can't ride (too cloudy, too sunny, it might rain, too hot, too cold, too windy, too short of a ride to bother taking it out, too far of a ride, it might get dirty, its too dirty etc). I make up reasons to ride (volunteer to pick up stuff for the misses etc). I love to ride. When I see someone on a beautiful sunny day and they say to me "it's a great day to ride". My reply is "It's always a great day to ride."
