2013 - The Year in Pictures and Happy New Year!

Quite the year, 2013, here's hoping the New Year will be an even better one for everyone.

Happy New Year from the Chang Gang!



Mileage Log:

22,102 miles ridden in 2013, as follows:

Valencia: 30,807 Kilometers (18,030 km of which were part of the Alaska Trip) or 18,484 Miles, ending the year at 48,062 Kilometers.

Brigitta: 2684 Miles (She went over 100,000 miles finally), ending the year at 100,666.

Yoshie: Only 934 miles (she spent most of the year on consignment), ending the year at 38,485.

That's 153,671 miles since I started blogging back in August 13, 2006.  I had taken the BRC during the Memorial Day Weekend of the same year.

Well done, Dom. 30k clicks is quite the accomplishment. I wonder where the tracks will lead you in 2014. Happy New Year!

And happy new year to you and your family!

Happy New Year from NZ.

Yes, impressive mileage. I've been a bit slack this year and am down about - probably just less than 20,000km. Hmmm, just thought of a New Year's resolution...

Thank you Richard, Happy New Year to you and yours...please also give my regards to the Airhead riders at the coffee house!

20k within the confines of NZ? Surely there's not much road left up ridden by now? Have a great new year!

22,000 miles for you. Great job Dom!!

Happy New Year to you Martha and the kids. All the best in 2014.

Nice review C6. Although I only joined you for a few of those miles I felt I was with you for every click you rode and showed.
Hard time good times you had in 2013. Wish only trouble free miles and many more smiles in '14

Happy New Year Dom to you, Martha and the kids.

Wow, you are really pouring on the miles. Since I started riding again in the fall of 2005 I've only put on about 50K miles on my two scooters and the motorcycles I've had the chance to ride. I'm just an enthusiastic amateur compared to your hardcore riding!

Dom:

You certainly had a very good year with lots of miles under your tires. I really liked all of those snow photos and I remember the mechanical challenges. Just luck that you managed to have them in populated places with lots of help. Lets hope that 2014 will be trouble free

I feel honoured to have been part of your memories

Happy New Year to you and the whole family. Health and prosperity to all.

Trobairitz and Troubadour....Happy New Year and many motor-adventures to you both!

Charlie6 said...

Spat (John), always good to ride in your company my friend. Happy New Year to you and Cookie!

Charlie6 said...

Steve, you're not just an enthusiastic amateur...you are one of the plank owners in the moto-blogging world! Great pics from today's riding by the way. My regards to Kim, hope you and yours have a great new year.

Bobskoot, my luck has always been good that when things go wrong, I am near help. I hope that continues for 2014 and onwards. Happy New Year to you and Yvonne!
