As of tonight it has 10,880 on it. When I bought it in mid 2020 it had a couple thousand. I feel like I'm doing pretty good for an old dude.

Rolled 120,000 over the weekend, warming up nicely so expecting a lot more now that we’re not dodging ice and snow!

Default 2004 1200R mileage update

23,100 so far. That's 13,900 since 2/18/2020 when I bought it with 9,224 on the clock. Not riding much till after 6/07 when I get the clutch replaced before it grenades. Another brilliant piece of engineering by the Motor company. Replacing with Barnett extra plate Kevlar, Barnett diaphragm spring and FAG 7200 bearing. Will use Bel-Ray Sport Trans in the primary.
