I'm averaging 5k miles for the last four years.
Other than tires, bulbs, oil and adjustments it's been pretty straight up.
I just rebuild the carb but the bike is 17 years old and probably hasn't had much done prior.

Amend that last post: shifter return spring broke at 27,700 miles.
I'm grounded for a while.

I've had no problems in 35k k's, as of Aug'18, on my Sportster (bought used in Jan'16 at 8k k's)...apart from an addiction to changing things out! But I don't really see that as a problem. Even my clutch is still going fine!
I'm grounded for a long time!
