100,000 miles!
« on: May 25, 2012, 10:14:46 am »
  Hit the 100k mark on my 08.  And just 47 months old!   Now I got to figure cost per mile....  What ever it is - IT'S WORTH IT!

Have to make an appointment for her first valve check too!     Stay extra safe this weekend.

That's awesome! Makes me miss my Silver '07  :'(

I'd prob have nearly that many miles on it as well.

Glad to see it holds up well to that many miles!  ;)

Congratulations on your first 100K    :chugbeer:

Maybe you can get your next 100 within 45 months.   Great Job.

That is a lot of rain to ride through if you do most most of your riding in Washington. 
Keeping the economy going, one tank of fuel and two tires at a time.

Am I right in reading that you rode this 100k miles and never had the valves checked?

WOW!

How's it been, otherwise? Any issues?

WTG.  The best I ever did on a bike was 88,000 miles in 3 years on my 72 Guzzi Eldorado.  44,000 miles the first year.  I now own a 94 Connie and hope to upgrade to an 06 in the next year or so.
