Heck, mine ain’t even broke in yet. It was 10 yrs old at 275. I think I got it up to 1,400, but it’s to chilly and wet outside to go look. Lord I hate fall and winter.

Default Miles, or lack thereof

1,354. Not bad for a 2009. I checked it today during the shakedown run with the new 32/66 pulley setup, the DK 828 Air cleaner, and the ViEDs. She's not gonna stay low mileage very long the way she runs now. Long trips into the city are gonna be a lot nicer with 500-600 less RPM under my buns.
