I put 37,000 on my X when I had it, and it went most of those with very stiff, lowered shocks (almost like a hardtail.) out back and dragbars. I still walk upright with no problem and never needed a chiropractor.
I love all bikes! Wait... let me clarify that.... I love all bikes that you can RIDE! Be it Cruisers, Sport bikes, Motocross, Touring, Rat, Bobbed, Chopped, Race, Antique, Jap, Euro, Metric and even the good ol American bikes..... I will never understand the allure of a trailer queen. Either building or admiring while discussing the latest trends in fashion over an overpriced cup of latté. Not my thing. Ride it! Ride the sh*t out of it!
Best ride this year for me was going to the NMM in Ohio. Rode there in the pouring rain and had a blast of a weekend! That was heaven for me.... Motorcycles, and I'd bet that 99% are rideable there! Not at all the type for the armchair American Chopper aficionados. It was an adventure!
That's my take on it... You can have yours.
