Default How Long....and....How Many?

Havent seen any posts on this soooooo.........How long have you been ridin HD's and how many have you owned and how many miles you got under yur belt.....HD's and total?

I'll start: bought my first HD at 17 years old for $2250.00....my 58 Duo-Glide. I'm 54 now, almost 55.

58 Duo-Glide (loved that bike)
79 FLH (POS)
03 FHTCU Anni-black/silver gold key
05 FLHTC (nice)
05 FLHR (great bike)
09 FLHTC (nice)
89 FLTCU (my baby)

As for miles...probably just over 500,000 all combined on HD's. Total on bikes is close to 700,000.

I bought my first motorcycle when I was 14, bought my first road bike at 17 (Kaw KZ 1000), didn't buy my first HD until I was 47, I'm now 52, I have no idea of how many miles total I've under my belt, but I have just over 50k on HDs.

My current Glide is my first Harley that is "road worthy".
Many different metric cruisers and sport bikes in the past

NOTHING BUT A GLIDE FOR THE FUTURE!!!!

Mileage...... a lot (over 100k?) however i will admit, not close to 500K !!
I have a lot of catching up to do

I didn't get my first HD until Aug of 2008.

2009 FLHTCU 32,254 Miles
2012 FLRTX 11,700+and counting.

I had threee metrics before that.

1983 Kawasaki 440 LTD Just a learning bike, about 1200 miles
2004 Suzuki Volusia 12,600
2006 Yamaha Road Star 26,300 miles

That puts me at about 84,000 miles since April of 2004 when I started riding, wiht about 44,000 of it on HD's.

Got my first Wide Glide in '93. Collected the chopper, 03 Heritage Springer and then the '10 Road Glide along the way. Still own the last three, and I just received my Hog miles 40,000 mile chevron , but that only stretches back to '03 when the Heritage was purchased. Hoping to get that 100,000 mile chevron within the decade.
