I think it'll go for another 100k. Long as the frame don't break, I'll keep riding it! Paul, I'm sure you will have another reach the mark.

My 09 hasn't made 23,000 yet. It has mostly sat in the garage the last 2 months. It needs a new front tire and probably new front wheel bearings. No time to do that right now as life moves on, may need to take it to an Indy.

WTG on the 100,000 mile milestone!

My 2007 sporty 883 low I just got yesterday has a tick over 3k original miles. Bikes had very little use in its 12 years on this earth. As soon as spring hits I plan to change that.

I am up to 22,501 on my 2004. I bought it last year with about 14,000 on it so it is getting used a bit more

Don't wait till spring! I bought my 2005 in February and between the extremely hot and/or rainy weather, I still managed to get in over 5K miles on mine so far. I'm planning on riding the next 2 days before we drop below freezing again.

If my garage is warm enough on rainy days, I do little projects on it. It gives me pleasure while I'm riding it or just working on it. It still looks stock but there are a ot of little invisible things I've done to it to make it run better and longer. So far, no burning oil, no drips, leaks or problems of any kind. However, it only has 15K miles on it.
