It will be a bit recall the exact KM's done on the bikes, though will be roughly around 75000KM (pretty sure it will more), cars it's 65000KM. So a total of 140000 KM.

I have been driving for about 16 years, but looking at the other BHPians from this thread, it looks like I have not been driving enough.
Approximately 40000 kms on 2 wheelers - Hero Honda CD 100, TVS Victor and Bajaj Discover over a period of 16 years
About 40000 kms in my first car - a Reddish Blue ZEN (sold in 2010)
45000 kms in my 1st new car - White SWIFT Vxi (2010 - 2012)
20000 kms in my dad's black i20 Asta (2009 - 2015)
Approximately 25000 kms in the US across multiple trips (Nissan Altima, Chevy Malibu)
4500 kms in my new Jetta Comfortline in Aussie land now.

Default Re: How many kms (in total) have you driven?

I got licensed when I was around 20 years old and as some others have pointed out, the longer one has lived the more kilometers/miles you tend to rack up.

My learning to drive phase started out on 2-wheelers borrowed from friends who were nice enough to trust me to handle them (which was a strict no-no as per my father who did not believe them to be safe). I racked up at the most 10-15 km on all my 2-wheeler driving.

The "real" learning began on my Dad's Premier Padmini & Maruti 800 for a total between them around 100 km. The Premier was a real lemon and was constantly breaking down. Dad replaced it as soon as a Maruti 800 was available for purchase- those days (late 80's) there was a long waiting list for it.

Most of my driving has been in the USA after I finished college. The driving in earnest started in the late 90's. Since then I'm on my 12th car here in the USA (the latest being a pre-owned Subaru Legacy). A rough calculation gave me a total of 350,000 miles in all (around 5.6 lac km).

My driving in India was limited to the brief stays of a few months at a time whenever I visited. Amongst the 4-5 cars my family has had over the years in India I probably drove 10,000 km at most.

Grand total 570,000 km, give or take.

P.S: Some of the vehicles mentioned above have put up more miles, but I have not accounted for them, since I have not logged those miles. This post highlights my contribution.

Accidents/Incidents worth mentioning
  • Rear ended a Hyundai Santro with my ALTO. No damages.
  • Rubbed sideways with a Swift on my Zen. Very minor scratches on fender.
  • Rear ended an auto-rickshaw with my SX4. Passenger in the auto received shocks from the accident, but she was very supportive. It was my mistake partly for lack of concentration, and the auto did not have functional brake-lamps at the rear.
  • A scooter crashed at 90 degrees with my SX4. The scooter rider had some injuries on his leg. (He had some skin loss). He was a daily wage worker and not having license or wearing any helmet. Car's front bumper was intact though there was a hole. Total damages 15000 rupees to treat the poor guy and my car. Scooter guy was careless.
  • Fell from Hero Puch on 3 occasions and had a hair line fracture and stitch inside my lips (Lesson: Don't wear half helmet)
  • Rammed into a pedestrian's while overtaking a bus from wrong side on Yamaha YBX. No damages or injuries.
  • Minor crash with a cyclist on my CBR. It was my fault since I was doing 100 kmph+. The cyclist (Local villager) panicked and went to center of the road due to confusion. My stopping distance fell short by some few meters and I rammed into the cyclist (at slow speed). No damages to the cyclist but my right-wing mirror was broken.
  • Crashed against a dog while driving my CIVIC at 140+ kmph on golden quadrilateral (AP zone). I was over-speeding but the dog crossed my path unexpectedly, and it was beyond my control. The poor dog lost its life (came to know later from Golak). I had pulled over after some distance to assess the damages. My front bumper had loosened up and cracked, which was fixed using nylon tie-cables.
