__ 329,152_ TOTAL MILES FROM __20____RIDERS LOGGED AS OF 1/22/18
CALLING ALL ROMEOs, the 2017 riding year has come to an end and it is time to turn in your miles. I am anxious to recording miles for the 2017riding year. This is not a contest and there will be no prizes, awards and no audit. I will post the information, if you will send me, 1) approximate miles ridden Jan-Dec 2016, 2) the motorcycles you rode this on—make, model and year, 2) your first name and city, 3) highlights of your riding this year. I know some of the numbers seem high but these are meant to be the number of miles you rode this year not the total miles you have ridden in your whole motorcycle riding career If you have a favorite picture of you and your motorcycle, seen it I will try to post it.

You may not think what you have done this year is of interest to anyone, but I think you would be surprised. I am always interested to hear how far guys are riding or if they just go to Romeo lunches, the different bikes guys enjoy riding, some are new, some old, some big, some small, and most of all where did you go this year. Maybe you went to Eskridge, KS or maybe to Alaska. Please share no matter how grand or how small everyone will enjoy. If you have been to a lunch. YOU ARE A ROMEO. If you don't know you mileage let us hear from you anyway. This is our only way of finding out who we are, what we are riding and where we are from.

I ride a 2012 Yahama 1300 V-Star, and rode 30,016 miles in 2017. Penny, my riding buddy only rode about 6,000 before she was hit by a car on the 13th of June. I turned over 100,000 miles this year and now working on the 2nd 100,000. In 2017 I rode through Kansas into Colorado in July for a Women On Wheels® Ride-In. Through Nebraska, into Iowa, South Dakota and Wyoming riding to and from Sturgis in August. Through Kansas, Oklahoma into Texas the end of September and through Missouri into ArKansas for two ROMEO Rendezvous. Making a total of 10 states for 2017.
