Suffice to say, this week I turned one year older, that was my milestone.
What's more important, is that Brigitta reached a milestone that is not that common for motorcycles, though BMWs are perhaps a bit more known for reaching that mark.
I watched, while riding home from work when about four miles from the house, as the odometer on Brigitta went from 99999 to 000000! There wasn't a safe spot to stop for the 99999 point but here's a picture I took I believe two days ago when I got to work; showing that she was approaching the milestone:

Shortly after the odometer rotated to all zeroes, I found a nearby spot to park and safely take pictures.
Brigitta's dash at 100,000 miles....all zeroes!

The clock is wrong, never did reset it for Daylight Saving Time this year.
A view of the Front Range Mountains the hour that
Brigitta went over 100,000 miles.
I bought Brigitta back on June 12, 2008.....shortly after my accident while on Maria, my 2004 BMW R1150RT. She came to me with 61,643 miles on her odometer so she and I have ridden 38,357 miles together since then.
The advent of sidecaring into my life set back achieving this mileage goal by a few years, I'll admit. Brigitta became my fair weather/canyon carving motorcycle. My sidecars, Natasha and later Valencia became my fun/foul weather/snow riding steeds while Brigitta sat safe in the garage.
Brigitta is the steady/reliable steed, especially when compared to the vagaries of the URAL Sidecar Rigs.....I expect she'll reach the 150,000 mile mark and beyond with no major issues.
I got home and noted the light on the sole tree in my front yard. So here's a bonus picture of Fall Coloring.
