I think I've hit 30,000 a few times but I rarely keep a bike more than 6 years
They were all in great shape when I sold them, too

I didn't know about the problems with the 30 year old Hondas.  I've changed a couple of stators that were 2 screws and a wire.

Of my six Hondas, four have to have the engines removed and the case split to get to the stator.
