How many miles do yall typically put on the RC every year?

Just curious, I've put 4200 miles on my bike so far this summer, Im guessing that is a little high for most typical RC riders but I've found a new love with this bike I'm finally getting close to being done with mods and i cant stand not riding her for more than a day or two

ive only had the bike since feb this year, and have put around 5k miles on it, so probably 10k miles give or take for the year.

That's what's up man, good to see her getting some miles I was scared to put a lot of miles on mine when I first got it but now I don't worry about it cuz I'm never gonna sell it and I'll just do a rebuild when the time comes

I had 16,000 on when I started riding my RC51 in February of 2011.
Now I have 37,000.
So roughly 6000 miles per year.

I picked up mine April 2010 with just under 3400 miles on the clock, now it shows over 25k.
So about 5000 miles a year for me.

Rock, you don't count, you only do track days because you know know that your 04 can't handle the miles a 03 can
