Broke 90,000 Miles Today

Yup, 90,000 miles. '90 CBR-1000F, all stock, all original, good maintenance. It's been an excellent bike! Maintain them and then run the snot out of 'em.

Dam, and I thought that 1000 mile ride we were alll talking about last week was a long ride.....

I was up to 68,000 miles on the Katana until I let the dealership do the maintaince on it ONCE!!! I still find parts in the garage from when it blew up

Congrats with yours...

I bought it to ride and that's what I do with it. How's that crazy?

I went up to Erie and had lunch with BlackbirdXX from Buffalo. Getting some use out of the middle of that tire as the sides are RIPPED from the track. A nice "tour" type day.

Keep it up Dad,
100.000 miles will show up on youyr clocks in no time!
The most I ve clocked on a motorcycle was 130.000km (around 80.000miles) but it was on a Honda CB250RS!
Those were the times...
Nowadays I don't even have time to ride, except the 6kms to work and back, and since last week when my wife gave birth to our first baby riding time is even more scarce....

Wow, that's a lot of happiness miles. I've done several times that in cars, but certainly can't say they've been happy.

Looking forward to the 100k update

This winter I'm doin' all that preventative maintenance stuff. Regap the plugs, look for the air filter again (never did find it, maybe behind the mouse nest), and take another link out of the chain. Nothin' but the best for my baby.

That'll be next year, late spring or early summer. Hope to turn the 100k on the track!
