+100k miles on '08 SDR

Postby No. 47 » Tue Jun 13, 2017 11:27 am

Just clicked on to 10k miles on the OE SDR so, by my reckoning, that's +100k miles in total, albeit on two bikes and three engines................

Well done! I just clicked 11k on mine, considering I might ride 5k miles/year it'll take me 18 more years to match you. Oy-vey ...

I did 47k on my 06 and another 15k on my 08. Only 1.5k so far on my 1290 so a fair bit of catching up to do.

Aye, a lot of fuel, oil, tyres, pads, discs, chains, sprockets, batteries, wheel and steering head bearings, parts, mods, etc, etc and, of course, standing by the side of the road but still riding every day and still smiling......

Didn't your 06 end up with a heap more miles on it than that?
