125,000 km / 78,000 miles on my 2012 Custom.

Still running on the factory clutch and clutch cable.

Running as smooth as ever, the best bike I ever bought, period

You guys ride a lot.

I bought a 2019 FXLR Softail last weekend of February 2019 and it has 15,300 miles. I ride pretty much every week day 100 miles round trip to work since December 2017. 2 1/2 months working from home saved me some miles.

Bought the Sportster used with less than 5,000 miles October 31st 2016. it had 8,000 miles when I put tires on it in September 2017. I rode it everyday, just worked 2 1/2 miles from home then. Though sometimes I would take a 10-15 mile ride home.

dayypete,

Where in Florida?
