    If it was in New Zealand it would be 'C' - and at only 20,000 miles!

    I'm with JohnG. The first answer is once every 35-meters (or yards). I'm in the city and don't have any RR tracks. So, the first answer is too high (for me).

    How long of a stroke are we talkin'? Cracks in the cement? They might stroke 1/4", or not at all, depending on the softness of your tires.

    Cement driveway approaches? One inch.

    Country washboard dirt roads in the spring? A thousand times per mile.

    I am going with answer C. Having driven on your Californian roads, I dont think 87 million would be enough either.....

    I would say 50 x per mile or one cycle every 100 feet of driving which equates to 2.5 million. The 25 million seems a bit high which would be every 10 feet of travel. The 87 million cycles would be a schock movement every 3 feet of travel which seems a bit too high.

    Ray, I'll go with the low number - 2.5 million.

    This answer depends on the bumpiness of the roads. The ones in New England would cause this answer to be upped by a factor of 100 or so! Down your way it might be lower.
