The 200,000 Mile ZX9


This is awesome to see, as I picked up a 2001 ZX9-R a few months ago with only 2,800 miles on the clock.  This dude has put 200k on his 1998, so now I have a new record to beat.  I’ve already clocked over 1,000 miles in just over a month, so I think I should be able to beat 200k by the time I’m 71. haha

Check out the article here, and wish me luck beating his record!

Update:  How funny is it that when I previewed this post, Google adsense had the following ad displayed above it.  Are they that good to know that I’m over-compensating for something by buying fast bikes?  :mrgreen:

Horsepower can't compensate for everything...

How did Google know I'm over-compensating for something?!

Update 2: Happened to come across this link about a Million Mile Harley Davidson.  I thought 200k on a Kawi was impressive, but god damn.  Assuming he rode 1,000,000 at an average of 65 mph, this dude would have spent roughly 15,385 hours in the saddle.  This equals about 641 days, or 1.76 years straight riding a motorcycle.  Now that’s dedication!

This is my blog. I started it back in 2006 when I was finishing my undergrad at SDSU, kept going as I started my career and completed my MBA, and what do you know I'm still updating over 10 years later... It contains a little bit of everything about me - I'm an opinionated asshole sometimes, definitely a nerd, a gamer, a husband, a manager for a consulting company, a DJ and a musician, a grease monkey and a motorcycle rider...and a whole bunch of other things that probably are too offensive to mention. This blog has a lot of stuff I find funny, a little I find serious, and tons of information about my various and plentiful hobbies. I hope you find something here that's interesting to you. I'd love to hear from you, so feel free to comment or contact me! Thanks for stopping by!
