Yes sir 2006 is when I bought her, brand new.


I think you've had a bit more fun with yours I just went over 17k miles.


86k is a good amount of miles, have you done anything besides changing out the fluids, new plugs, tires and valve adjustments?

flange bearings at 45,000 miles..

clutch springs at 50,000, slippage in 5th gear.
all brakes at 50,000, just because.

front fork seals and bushings at 83,000

as for spark plugs.. still original.. Iridium are 100,000 mile plugs
I pull them every 2 years.... just because.
