Wow...that's crazy mileage. Congrats on that milestone. Makes me feel bad that I only have 43000 on my 93 750 and I thought that was fairly high miles.

Nothing special concerning maintenance; just very religious about oil changes. And I only use Motul 300V 10-40 full synthetic.

But it does have a couple expensive parts that fail regularly.
I'm not including items such as chains, sprockets, wheel bearings, my fat a$$ wearing out stock fork springs, or self inflicted damaged such as road debris poking a hole in the radiator.

1) It's on it's 4th stator. -- they cost about $150 each -- first one was under warranty; hence free.
2) It's on it's 3rd STV actuator. -- they cost about $450 each.
3) AND it has a (free to me) replacement frame. Because a jackass backed into it in a parking lot and cracked the original frame.

Actually that was 28500 miles per year for 7 years.  Wink
(I've slacked off since then. 2008 = new job = no vacation and shorter commute. 2009 = unemployed.)

Wow!  Those are 'miles' not kilometres!    Hail

I am impressed.  Just completed trip #5 to BC, back and forth, and have only 91,000+ kilometres.

Do you have a long commute to work?  

I ask because the only person I know with high 'mileage' uses his bike as his daily commuter, from outside of the city.

I've had multiple commutes with this bike:

'00 through '02 = 65 miles each way; from Califon, NJ into midtown Manhattan NYC.
(Almost all interstate and city driving. A lot of lane splitting and filtering in NYC and at Hudson river crossings.)
(For a while after 9/11; only motorcycles were allowed in downtown NYC and through the Holland Tunnel.)

'03 through '06 = 45 miles each way; from Califon, NJ to Princeton NJ.
(All two lane roads that I have known all my life.)

'06 through '07 = ~95 miles each way; from Allentown, PA to Princeton NJ.
(This was the most enjoyable commute; all two lane back roads for at least 3 hours; but usually closer to 4 hours; per day. Smile )
(On very rare occasions I had to work in Manhattan. I-78 the whole way. Boring Sad ; and very cold during the winter. EEK! )


'07 through '08 = 55 miles each way; from Allentown, PA to Horsham, PA.
'09 = no commute = unemployed. Sad
