Default Mileage eater!

I've logged over 10,000 miles since 1 May (6 weeks total) for a total so far of 41,000 miles in 2.5 years I have to say that with every trip I make I love my Vision and trailer more and more. The 10k miles were trouble free with the exception of being plagued with the rear front fender breaking loose.

Another 10k planned before mid September.

The trips so far

So far, I've used every mile of the trips the CTC-100. The only heating AND cooling gear on the market. What a joy it's been to tick off the miles in comfort no matter how hot or cold it gets.

I wrote about it HERE or HERE.

Ride on my brethren!!

Damn garage quee! LOL

I have had my 2011 since November of 2011 and have 79K on it so far. I have a goal to get to 100K by the end of the summer. Now if it would just quit raining so I could ride.

Next time you break a fender in Des Moines find me earlier.

ATGATT because walking away in disgust is better than riding away in an ambulance.

Never get to busy making a living that you forget to make a life.

Damn, I'm not getting notifications of updates. Sorry.

rodhotter, I ride the hell out of my bike, and didn't buy to plan to sell. I put a lot of time and money every winter getting her back to new condition. Like all the panels that show road wear. They don't get repaired but replaced.

If I ever do trade or sell for something else it will definitely appear to have never been used (except when looking at the odometer).

lstayner, You got a deal. With your mileage goals you shouldn't have any problem stopping in at my place as a base for the best riding Colorado has to offer. You are always welcome here.

We have been in Colorado several times. My cousin used to live in Longmont but moved to north Boulder a few years back. I love riding out there. I have driven Trail Ridge Road in a car but would love to get there on the bike again. The wife isn't real cool with mountains. She loves the view from the valleys.

Well done! Nice set up and I like the CTC unit you are running to go along with those high miles you're putting on your baby. You might get the motor mileage up to 200k+ fairly soon at this rate. I hope you have it rebuilt and keep on truckin'.
