Remember Fred Stearns from East Wallingford, Vermont who put over 10,000 miles on his 2003 Yamaha RX-1? Stearns proclaimed that his target was 12,000 miles on his 2004 Yamaha RX-1, so how did he do?
Another good snow year in the northeast (and another trusty RX-1) allowed Stearns to log, you guessed it, over 12,000 miles in one riding season! 12, 837 to be exact. He didnâ€™t take kindly to those suggestions that since the Yamaha speedometer was off slightly that maybe he really didnâ€™t get 10,000 miles on his first RX-1, so he ran this one well over 12,000 miles to be sure. Congratulations Fred!
There is a host of hardcore riders like Stearns that are often part of the ride. One of them, Rob Lyons, is the webmaster at www.hardcoresledder.com, another website dedicated to those psycho riders who just canâ€™t get enough of our beloved sport!
