Reading 56131 miles here, didn't log exact reading from last year but we did around 5000 miles this year, above average for us. Michigan trip was 2800. But still working from home so missing all the commuting miles 20 each way to the office. Usually log 4000 or so if no long trip.

'02 GL1800 lives in Dawsonville, GA now.
My son is going to enjoy it for many years to come.

in 2020, I logged all of 87 miles on my 2002
in 2021, it logged a few feet behind a winch line getting it up on a Tilt Bed, took it to Tulsa to get the clutch fixed, which they totally screwed up.

Trailered it to Amity, AR so that Dave Ogden could fix it up properly, which he did.

the next day, I trailered it to Dawsonville, Georgia and signed the title over to my son.

it is not proper to allow a bike in "what was, pristine condition" to rot away.

he is enjoying it a lot now, and having just turned 50, he has a lot of years left to enjoy my 1800.

I have lost my enthusiasm for riding bikes.... rarely fire up the little Piaggio scooter and ride it.

Well I have treated myself to a new 2021 Goldwing Tour, manual, towards the end of June so I'll have to split my mileage between my 2007 Goldwing at about 7200 mi and the 2021 Goldwing at 8300 for a total of 15,500 so I don't think it slowed me down too much. Looking forward to 2022 and rolling down the highway, stay safe out there.

Too early to be overly original, so I copied this from my post at another forum to which I subscribe

54,216 miles, it ain’t magic in and of itself, but it’s a personal milestone marker.
54,216 = 6,000 SAFE and enjoyed miles on my GoldWing this year. This time last year, I had a whopping 0, a Goose egg, ZILCH, NADA single mile of riding on that behemoth of a motorcycle!
With weather at 3/10th above nominal on NYE, I opted to ride to work and do a few errands thereafter. When all was said and done and I closed the garage door for the last time on the last day of my first year of riding again, I totaled out at 6,039 personal miles logged. Only Two major road rides, not necessarily road trips, as I didn’t stay, rather turned around for home, each only high double digits one-way.
Here’s hoping that 2022 see more mileage and less stress, which evaporates under clutch and throttle.

FINAL MILEAGE for 2021

60050. Never checked before, so I don't know how much I rode this year. Wasn't much though, maybe 2 - 3 thousand miles. At least I will have a place to check at the end of 2022

128k on my 83. Didn't record the actual mileage this past season. All I know is I wore out a Shinko 777 on the front.

I managed 11,000 km (7,000) miles on two Goldwings. I put 5,000 on my 2006 bike before hitting a deer head on at 60 mph. Needless to say both the bike and deer are no more. I did manage to stay up and was able to make the two hour ride home but by then most of the radiator fluid was gone. I missed out on the two summer vacation rides I had planned before I bought a 2017 Goldwing. I managed 2,000 miles on it before the end of riding season.

Well crud. Last year when we were doing this I felt pretty bad that I had only put in 6600 miles for 2020. At the time I thought for sure that in 2021 I would be able to get in more miles again.

Just went out and checked, and my bike now has 65807 miles on it, for a grand total of 4040 miles for all of 2021. High summer temperatures and the smoke from all the forest fires around the region just destroyed my riding season this year.

However, as of today I am now officially completely retired, so once the white crap is off the roads I WILL start putting in more miles. Here's to a great riding season in 2022.

Got my '99 GL1500 at the beginning of 2021, and put it on the road in March. It started with 6900 miles (not a typo), and I ended the year with 12096. Tried to double it, but came up a little short.

6,500 on my 2012 GL1800 this year (64k total miles). Mostly to overnight weekend stays to 42 Tournaments and from Ft Worth to Nacogdoches to see my son & grandsons (they call me “Motorcycle Grandpa”). Oh … and to the golf courses as I pull a trailer too w my golf stuff!

I put just over 11,100 miles on in 2020. My goal was 15k so I didn’t quite make it.

2021 was a little better year than 2020. I rode my 2008 GL1800 just under 7,900 miles and my wife rode her 2008 GL1800 just over 7,100 miles. Much better than the 2,200 miles we rode in 2020. Covid still impacted our riding a little as did other activities we enjoy like camping and Jeeping. With the snow coming down this afternoon about all I can do is look out the window and look forward to the summer of 2022.

Well, this is depressing. I finished the year with 41,597 miles on the odometer and only 7,440 of those were from 2021. 3,064 of that was just our trip to Colorado in June and then another 1,220 with my daughter down to the Texas Hill Country in November. Great trips, but my wife and I both thought I'd put on at least 10k last year.

2017 - 3,868 (purchased at end of July 2017)
2018 - 10,372
2019 - 10,256
2020 - 9,661
2021 - 7,440

Thinking about the decrease I can only come up with needing to pick up or carry more than able on the bike and having to drive my truck. I don't remember the weather being worse except for that blizzard early on. I didn't really drive less because here are the miles for my truck the past two years. There's the miles I should've had on the Wing. I try and get those back in 2022.

2021 - 9,090
2020 - 4,652

I understand... I was the caregiver to my Mom for the last 4 years of her life .... she too had dementia ... I kept her here at the house and cared for her, wasn't going to out her in a nursing home ... wanted to preserve her dignity and respect ... and yes it a killer on your social life ... so I understand

Bought a 2006 GL1800 in late 2017 with 26K miles on it. At the beginning of 2021 had a about 73K on it. At the end of 2021 I have 78K so I barely rode and I retired which dropped all the work mileage which was about 100 miles a day. I plan on making up for it this year, lots of mountain riding!

I’m retired. Put on approx 20,000-22,000 km each year of first 3 yrs of 2013-2015. One extended road trip each summer with my big brother, he on his 2015 wing. We’d do 10-12k each trip. Then another 10k the rest of each of those years myself.

2016 and forward, only about 7,000 - 8,000 each year. Less because I lost my wingman due to his failing eyesight and spine issues, and I didn’t feel like doing a lone trip without him.

End of 2021, 103,000 total kilometres.

I looked at your travel map. I’ll have to try that app. You’re lucky in Calgary being nice and close to some great rides to your west. Hwy 17 all the way east to Ottawa is one of my favourites. Done it a couple of times now. East coast is also unique. You’ll likely do Newfoundland sometime. Both scenic roads and some bleak areas too. Nice to see fellow Canucks exploring our roads.
