I have put 124,000 as of August 2016 (8 years of ownership) but was not riding for 6 months, broken leg, plus put 8,500 on my Royal Star Venture in the nine months I owned it before last August when I broke my leg.

Back to riding as of March with 125,000 on the VTX and 12,000 on the RSV.

Bought my 1800C new in 2006. Current mileage is at 171,400. Still runs like new.
Ride On! You're my freakin' hero man. Besides chrome, tires, brakes and oil changes what kind of work have you done on it?

I'm on my second VTX. My first was an 02 R 1800 model and I had right at 60k when I sold it. I only changed tires and fluids. Never a hiccup and even pulled a trailer with it. Went down the Harley path for a couple years. Came across another VTX this month and couldn't let it pass me by (too good of a deal). It's a 03 R 1800 (same color as my first - Orange) and it has just over 11k miles. I'm the third owner and the last guy had it for 12 years and only put 8000 miles on it.

I got this 2007 1800F this time last year with 14599 on it.

I'm crazy about this machine. It never lets me down. I'm having the time of my life.
That's a healthy year of miles, especially on a bike! Nicely done!

04, 1300s, bought while it was in the crate in August of 03.
0 on the odo. 65k now. But I'll admit I took some time off.

When I bought this bike, I had NO expectation these would run this long.
I'm planning a tear down this coming winter for a face lift, and new lease on life.
Lookin forward to another 65k and more

04 1300 with 45k

I bought mine last july from and older gent, he bought it new, that had his hip replaced and could no longer get his leg over the seat. She had 44k on the clock, and right now I'm at 45k and climbing. She still looks amazing, and she runs like a champ!

My 1300C had 18800 on it when I got if a week or so ago. I've only put about 100 miles on it since, but that's because I've been working alot, getting parts, and the freaking rain. It'll rack up the miles real quick before too long.

Just curious, why no riding trips? I always look forward to them as well as the guys I ride with.
AGE and CASH.. and the fact.. all of my riding buddies have Died....all of them.
also this past winter.. I spent it in South Texas... with the bike..
Summer riding Local in Ohio.. and
Winter riding Local in South Texas..
.
I take the bike to Texas in the back of my F 250... pulling a 30 foot camper trailer.
except for my Wife.. I have no relatives... and been to most places I wanted to see by motorcycle.
