Well I was pushing to get 30K on my bike before I went into surgery in November but I was about 1k down. After a month of R&R I got back in the saddle did some around town riding and eventually met up with Rudeboy109 and a handful of other fellas to roll on a few more miles to turn that 30k. I was able to squeeze out 300+ for the day which wasn't bad considering my neck muscles are still somewhat weak still but now I only needed about 500 more to reach my personal goal.
Lucky for me, two days later another buddy of mine wanted to put some miles on his new bike so we left early in the morn and ventured off. We took the back roads through the hills of Frazier Park heading to hwy 33 then to hwy 166 missing most of the Holiday traffic and cops until we were a little closer to Santa Maria on our way to Solvang. Once we reached civilization again we hit the holiday madness. It was worth it though because there is a motorcycle museum in Solvang that is well worth seeing.
Just a heads up, it runs $10 pp and you'll probably have to call someone to arrange a time to have it open it for you. I would share pics but I forgot my camera and my phone that day, DOH! Anywhoo, long story short, we made our way back home cutting through the hills trying to avoid as much of the holiday traffic and patrols as possible and was able to score a 400 mile ride that day. The only problem was I was still 100 miles shy and needed/wanted to spend time with my wife on New Years Eve SO, I am starting my New Year @ 29909 miles and hope to have 60k by next year.
My question to you is: What is your personal mileage goal for this year?
