This afternoon the odometer on my CBR ticked past 1,000 miles! She's been so good to me in just 2 short months! :D I love that those first miles are behind me... I've learned so much (have far more yet to learn), but don't have near panic attacks before a ride, and look forward to thousands more miles of safe riding! :)

Hey, isn't there a club for this milestone?!? :p

I'm not sure but....you can start one. Call it "The thousand mile bike" club. Bit of a twist on the "Mile high Club":eek:

Congrats! I was at 1,573 today when I filled up. Not bad for 5 weeks! LOL The wifes is around the 500 mark and she's actually out on it right now as I sadly type this from work. I'd sooooo much rather be out riding with her.

Aww! I wish I got to get a pic of mine. But the guys prob would've punched me in the face for that. Lmao. I didn't realize that you are in VA Angela. What town? Do you have any idea how far from Raleigh you are? I might want to come up your way. Or maybe we could meet near the border? Plan a lil ride out. :) My goal by May of next year is to ride through all 100 counties in NC. Lol. I knocked out at least 7 today!

Jkincaid, I so wish I'd taken a pic of my odometer... I was slowly cruising(35mph zone) through the 'hub' of our rural town. Kind of nostalgic actually. ;) The place I frequent often, old high school & local businesses.

LOVE the idea of seeing each county in your home state--I may have to 'borrow' that one for Virginia. I'll get a map because I've covered 7 or 8 myself (last weekend's roadtrip helped!). Nothing like exploring in your backyard, relatively-speaking. :)

I'm west of Richmond, about 3 hrs. from Raleigh. There's a guy on the forum, Rusty Shackleford that's from Richmond. Would love to meet up for a ride. I've heard Lake Gaston is beautiful. Ideas?

Oh sh*t, you commute on your bike? I'm screwed in the odo wars, then. I live 1/2 mile from my office. All my bike time is recreational. Guess I'll just have to take some weekend-long tours to get the mileage up -- a dirty job, but I'll make the sacrifice because it's all about winning the odo war.

I do indeed commute ~45 miles/day on my bike. :) However, I only ride it work about 2-3 days/week weather and scheduling logistics permitting. My 'recreational' riding is more limited... so it'll be too close to call to see who'll prevail! ;) See you at the 2K finish line!
