There is a 98 boss on e-bay with 800 miles. This is not the first I have seen. Seems a lot of people buy em to say they have em. So come on guys.... What kind of miles do you do?? Glen.... We all know you are in a class of your own here... :biker:

17,000 miles on the Trike in the first year. My wife put 12,000 of those miles on and we are looking for some serious riding this year if the weather will ever corporate a little.

I put just under 30,000 KM (22,000 miles) on my new 2004 SB this past summer. That was from about mid April to Oct 31, and I haven't been on it since. I need to live in a warmer climate. This is driving me crazy :cus:

Bought my Boss new in 2000 and have close to 35,000 miles on it . If I could ride year round I'm sure I would have double that .

I picked mine up 12/28/04 (exactly on month ago) and have put approx 700 miles on it. I would have put more on it but I have a bad water pump and have been nursing it around trying to decide if the water was coming from the pump or elsewhere. The pump has been ordered.

The bike had about 5400 miles on it (it's a 2002 model) when I picked it up and now has about 6100.

We have better weather here so I can ride pretty much all I want. Oops, there you go Steve...that's another cold one! :lol:

Thanks Jack, yes and I read some of your other post about g.p.m. capacity. I'm told that this pump will do 32 g.p.m. If this is so, the engine should run a little cooler. In this cooler weather I've noticed that it typically runs from 180 to 205. At the higher temp. the fan kicks in full blast and the temp usually drops. This happens at red lights when the engine is at full operating temp. I don't have any idea what will happen when it gets into the heat of the summer.

And if I hear Steve bragging about how nice the cooler weather is up there near the north pole this summer....then I think he owes ME a cold beer!!!! Right?

I bought my first Boss in Nov 99 and put 73,000 on it. I justy bought this bike and have only been able to ride it about 250 miles so far due to the weather.

My '01 had 5K miles on it when I bought it two years ago. Now has 25K miles. Why not ride one if you have it? I don't understand these bikes for sale with less than 1000 miles on it.

At the first rally we went to in seven springs, I looked at the Boss Hoss Speedo-s and a big bunch had less than 500 miles on them. With the new Speedo-s you can't see the mileage with out the key on but I bet they have few on them. On my two wheeler I put 30,000 in the first two years but my wreck stopped that short of my goal of 25,000 per year. I did get 25,000 last year but not all on a Boss.

From the Class in the back of the building,
Just over 111,000 miles on my 98. Would have been over 115k but skipped taking the Hoss to Biketoberfest this fall and instead took a 18 wheeler loaded with donated Hurricane Relief supplies to Ocala Fla. and only stopped briefly in Daytona with the Tractor.
BTW Tom, finally got the cert in from the fall run. Came in this week.

I have had my Trike for almost 5 weeks and have 1587 miles so far. And that's all local riding no trips yet. My fist trip will be to Daytona Bike week. And I might just ride to the Boss Hoss meet in TN. About the only time I use my SUV now is to go to Publix or Home Depot ( Large Loads ) other than that I ride my Trike.

Mark :D
