Yearly Mileage 2012

Tomorrow is the first day at work for us this year.  As normal will be heading in on our trusty motorcycles.

As is traditional for us, we have noted the milage on both our bikes.  Once again we had a light year again for us.  The big holidays of the year were all in the car as they were photography focussed.

Our Honda Deauville finished the year on 60133, again only light commuting duty by Caroline.  So she completed 672 miles last year.  She is getting old now and we only use her occasionally.

Caroline mainly travels on the GS now.  If your a lady and would like a big GS but are put off by the height then do what we did and order the low seats, we have both seats, the standard seat which when set on its highest position is perfect for some one like me over 6′ 2″, and the low seat option for Caroline who is 5′ 6″, who can then confidently put down both feet.  The big GS is also actually lighter and easier to handle then the Deauville.

Our Lovely BMW R1200GS finished the year on 27158, no big trips for us last year but a weekend round North Yorkshire.  She completed 5299, still quite low for us.  This next year is also going to be a light year.  We are visiting the Scottish Islands again with the Large Format Camera gear, so the car again will be the order of the day.
