After the disaster last spring at 112,000 miles (engine broke), I've put 8000 miles on the rebuild, now & am very pleased with it. She has a bit over 120,000 miles on her now.

Made a run down to “sprink”’s house yesterday, a balmy Michigan cold weather ride. Rolled past 115,000 mile mark,(115,075 on the tripmeter in his drive), time to change out fluids, again!

Black Beauty made it to 120,00, then ate the roller on the front cylinder exhaust lifter. Debris everywhere, looks like she’s done, may she rest in piece. Progressive Insurance “totaled” her last year so I’ll pull some of the upgrades off her and turn her in. Still got three more bikes here.
