ODO milestone

I recently hit 11111 miles on the commuter bike! Forward, backward, right side up, up side down - any way you look at it I've ridden 11111 car replacement miles. What milestones do you have on your odometer?

Congrats. That's awesome.

I'd like to get one. I have an app on my phone that usually works, but a dedicated device for my bike would be nice.

I'm just short of 29K. I kind of stopped making any fuss about 1K marks a while ago. I'll probably post it when I hit 30/40/50K.

I suppose 31069 miles is 50,000 kilometers, so if this country used an actually sensible system of measurement I'd be less than a year from that milestone.

Very nice, that's a lot of miles. My milestone is that I doubled my goal for this year by passing 2400 miles.

Very soon now I'll be hitting the 10, 000 mile mark, but "sadly" when I do so, I'll be rolling over to all zeros.

Wow, I should really keep using an odometer. I don't use it consistently. I mostly use it to see my daily mileage and average and max speeds.
