Got my 'Busa past the 100 mile mark, so I'm counting down the miles to get that 500 mile service done !

One hour to get to the 100 mile mark, so just four more hours to go.

I would have had the first 500 miles in the first day of owning it. Once I bought it, I would have made the 500 mile service appointment the same day for the next day.

Make the appointment....

LMAO... I thought about it, but it has rained here off & on enough to make it risky thing ! Rode again last night, I am now at the 200 mile mark ! I think I will get the service done at a little bike shop up in North Ga. this week, like the Friday before WOS gets up in the Gap and starts Tearing Chit up...

Not to but....I have noticed that as well. When in a car/truck or anything not 2 wheels, 100 miles seems to take forever. As when on a bike...you look and wonder how you just put a few hundred miles on in a short time.

You guys are wooses.
Try driving 18 wheels for over 600 miles a day four days a week.
Some do it six days.
Two or three in a car is a piece of cake.
On a bike its just allot more fun!

Mileage...

Not to bragg Jeeps, but I used to leave Pensacola, FL on Sunday night about 8pm CST, stop and load in N/O LA about 4am, and deliver in Billings, MT on Wed. afternoon, and be back home in P-Cola, FL in my favorite bar having a beer by 2pm on Fri. afternoon. Did this for about a year & a half. I did get alot of speeding tickets tho'.. Let's just say I like speed, whether it's 2 thru 18 wheels... LoL.. I once passed a fellow trucker who asked me if I knew how fast I was going, I said No, he said, "Well, I'm going 105 mph" to which I replied, "Then I'm going faster than you!"...
