Barry, strap a GPS on your bike so you can see how accurate your speedo is.

Did anyone keep track of their miles today? My odometer reflects 341 miles, but that seems too high.  Either I have a really bad memory or my instrument panel is really screwed up.  Of course as I said to Joe today, I had to hit triple digits on multiple times to keep up with you CF's.  Maybe the speedo is off too?

 While also I had 243 which would be sounding right with Galen being about 30 something miles more than me to get home from where we split. 🙂

Thanks, that is why I posted.  The 341 seemed to be too high. So it must actually be 241 miles.  I could not remember my starting milage, it was either 9272 or 9372. I forgot to reset the trip odometer. And the Google timeline only reflected 202 miles, which was too low.  (FYI - If your location is set to active on an Android phone there is an option on Google Maps to view your location, but it not very accurate.  It only reflects a location when your phone picks up the GPS signal.)

LOL, I have done that and yes it is off, but only about 10% or so.
