How many miles do you have on your e-bike ?

How old is your bike and how many miles have you put on it ? Mine is 4 months old and I just hit 1,500 miles.

I am looking to put fender on front because of splash. At times, I wish it had a throttle, then I downshift and it takes off again. I'm an older peddler and having the assist is essential to keep me getting some exercise and seeing this beautiful state from all the rail trails. what do you ride?
incidentally there is a little info in my bio on the left of the message.

We've put 1077 miles on our ebikes this year. I'm responsible for about 983 of those miles. No commuting. Just riding around the local neighborhood for fun.

I've ridden my regular bike 8 times this year. 83 miles total. I keep a log.

The fun riding season will be over after the leaves drop in six weeks. Sad.

250 miles on mine I built it in February. I have about 700 miles on my regular bikes in the same time.

Built a Luna Mid drive with 52v and 13 amp hour battery on one of my old mountain bikes. I added a wider seat, suspension seatpost, and street tires. It is so easy cruising at 20 mph compared to 14 without power.

I converted my old Fuji crossover a month ago and have 325 miles on it in a month. I'm using a 48v 1kw rear hub motor and running a 15amp lithium battery.

It's still fun to ride my unassisted pedal bike, so the eBikes get used mostly as grocery mules. That ride clocks about 800 miles annually.

About 7000 since Dec 2015. 2600 so far this year. I use an ebike for a 20 mile one way commute that would otherwise take too much time or I would have to drive part way.

My utility bike with BBS02 conversion's maiden voyage as an e-bike was on St. Patrick's Day, 17 March 2017. This afternoon when I ride home from work it will cross 1,800 miles. Not bad for 6 months.
