20k Miles and purring like a kitten.

2007 R6R + MJS header, Akro Slipon, BMC filter, PCV

Bike is running absolutely perfect. Better than new, its just a joy. This is mainly for anyone having doubts about high mileage bikes.

Re: 20k Miles and purring like a kitten.

Just broken in!
I've got 20,000 miles on my '04 R6 now.
40,000 miles on my '06 FZ1.
96,000 miles on my Goldwing.
I put over 20,000 miles on a 2002 R1. The current owner has it up to 40,000 miles now.

Bikes nowadays are strong.

Re: 20k Miles and purring like a kitten.

There was a Honda Pacific Coast on my local CL recently that was rocking 98,000 miles.
