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!
