OK guys lets get this going. Its a bit late to start, but considering that some you canadians are still in the snow, it might work for you all.

As of May 15th, post a picture of your odometer.

Here is the Spreadsheet!
Google Docs - Fz6 Mileage

There will be two classes,

Class 1, Commuters.
(This is for you guys who ride everyday to work or class. Obviously you will gain more milage than those that only ride for rec.)

Class 2, Recreational
(The weekend warriors! Obviously some of you will ride to work from time to time, just along as it isnt a regular occurance)

End date will be November 15th!

Maybe by then we can work up some sort of prizes or something by then.
If you would like to enter later on in the year, that is always fine. You just can post miles riden before the 15th.

Lets get this going!


Good Luck! :thumbup:

Take it easy Charlie. I've got an angle.
Re: Milage Contest!

What about a class for both? I ride to work almost everyday and take weekend rides out of state. Anywhere from 200 to 500 miles in a weekend.

Re: Milage Contest!

Sounds like a plan, and a fair monthly span as some of us can't ride all year. Ice...

We'd be lucky to come close to Nov. 15th!

Cool contest but the winners are going to be those going on the big trips! I'll jump in and grab a pic on Thursday.

bmccrary, REMIND US!!! :thumbup:

Yes, a reminder on Thursday would be very helpful.

Count me in.

Re: Milage Contest!

The only reason for the commuter class is because you will get more miles than someone who just does the weekend warrior.

Working on replacing my TPS right now, once that is done I will be back in charlotte and I can post up my milage.

Sure they do, just take a picture of the odometer...he, he, he

Id like to see who could use the least amount of gas to go the farthest distance. Now that would be a challenge.

Re: Milage Contest!

I got better gas milages in the twisties beating the heck out of it then on the highway... this could be fun, lol.

Replacing that TPS helped alot. I got on average 48mph.
435 miles today in the Great Smokey Mtns...Im sore and going bed.

I think that would also be the idle in 6th gear on the stand.

Here's my photo


I generally commute 2 or 3 days a week on my bike, and only do a couple of bigger rides per year.

Oh btw this is in Km's not miles.
