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

Here's my information after recalling my drives so far
I got my LMV license in 2008. Started driving on purpose from September 2009 though after I got a job.
First drive (alone, without a backseat driver or guidance) was in 2009 September when it rained heavily and going to office on bike was just not possible, dad gave his car keys and asked me to fill some petrol in it. That time I finally got that sense of 'standing on your own feet' and being 'responsible'.

Dads Zen: ~5000 km
My Car: ~30,000 km
Wife's Car: ~13,000 km
Brother's Car: ~1000 km
Other relatives/Friend's cars : ~2000 km
Total = 51,000 km in 6 years

Bike/Scooter : Started riding from 2005 (12th Std college)
Activa : ~20,000 km (Junior college)
Pulsar 150 : 56,XXX km (Engineering college: remember exactly as her maintenance chart was shared while re-selling)
Yamaha R15 : ~17,000 km (Office)

It will be great if we can also share the time when we started driving.

Thanks !

I got my MCWOG licence when I was 16 and I had a Hero Honda Pleasure then on which I have done about 40,000 kms till I sold it last year

The TVS Jupiter has about 7,500 kms on it and my contribution to it can be accounted for at least 4,000 or more.

Got my LMV licence made on the day I turned 18.

I've done about 5,000 to 7,000 to the Maruti Esteem and 23,000 on the Honda Amaze!

Back of envelope calculation for me gives about 1,86,000 km. 1,44,000 of this is in USA in various cars. 40,000 in India in one car and 2,000 in India in a motor-bike.

From the poll trend it seems I am in the biggest bucket

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

This is what I could recall.

First drive- In the year 2000, when I was in class 3 and could barely peep through steering. I drove about 100m in a field early morning by just clutch and brakes, and surprisingly enough, didn't stall even once.

Then I got my license in 2010 at the age of 18. One of my close friends here was the son of an influential businessman who owned a Maruti dealership. So drove extensively on the TD SX4 in which we used to roam about. Had driven a total of about 5000kms on that car.

Coming to our own cars which I have driven for some considerable distance-
Dad's 800(my current daily ride) ~65,000 km
Mom's Old Swift ZDi: ~5,000 km
Friend's Indica at college: ~10,000 kms in a period of 4 years.
Other relatives/Friends' cars : ~2000 km

Total driving experience=approximately 90,000 kms in 5 years( TDs excluded )


2 Wheelers : Started riding from 2011.
XCD135 : ~37,000 kms
CBR 150 and Apache 160 at college-approx 5,000 odd kilometers

Total riding experience-42,000kms


One thing I would like to mention is that I never learnt to drive/ride. I used to sit beside my father while he was driving, and somehow was at complete ease when driving on the first day!! Ditto for bikes.

Regards,
Shashi

Interesting thread GTO. I used to think I have a lot of driving experience. Your question and a calculator brought me back to earth. Here is the data:
Fiat (1986-87) - 10000km
Omni 1 (1987-89) - 60000km
Omni 2 (1989 - 2002) - 50000km
Zen (2002-2004) - 56000km
Ikon 1.6 (2004-2009) - 70000km - shared with my brother (total mileage 97000)
Fiesta 1.4 (2006-2009) - 68000km
Optra (2009 - 2013) - 72000km
Scorpio (2009 - 2010) - 20000km
Pajero SFX (2010 - current) - 85000km
BMW 320d (2013 - current) - 25000km (6 Delhi-Mumbai trips included)
Pajero Sports (2015 - current) - 2000km
Motorcycles (Assorted) ~ 10000km
About 5,28,000km.

This doesn't include the annual Manchester to Scotland trips in the United Kingdom for the past 6 years.

Cheers
