My 02 V-Strom has 17,000 miles since April and the 03 FJR has 4,000. Tire dealers love me.

A few more miles to report. The FJR that I picked mid October now has 6600 miles on it and the '02 R1 has a little over 47,000 miles now. I will hopefully get the '99 R1 back soon with a new engine and tranny fixed under warranty.

Iím just over 121,000 miles on my 96 ZX-11. The bike isn't exactly original as I gave it a big power boost at about 44,000, although the mains and rod bearings were retained as they looked like new. Of course, no bike goes 121,000 miles without some things being replaced. Not bad, considering I seldom get to ride it.

I was at a Harley shop last year when a group of four Harley riders started bragging about the 'incredibly high mileage' they had achieved. I immediately claimed that my Kawasaki probably had more than all four of their Harleys put together. They said something about cow manure and seemed to resent such a claim. I took my trusty pen and paper and jotted down each odometer reading. I beat their sum by over 20,000 miles. I admitted that their total was much higher than expected though.

This subject always reminds me of the guy who was bragging about having an axe in his family for over 200 years. His great, great, great, great grandfather bought it at a hardware store. And in all that time, it's only had three new heads and four new handles.

Below is a current photo.

I'm at 43,000kms (27,000 miles) in two years on my GPz1100. We only have a six or seven month riding season in the interior of British Columbia so I ride every chance I get.

I see this thread got brought back to life. I made the 70,000 mark on the way to a track day at Carolina Motorsports Park a week ago. That was on top of three track days at Beaverun this summer. It's had a new timing chain and tensioner at about 50,000 as well as steering head bearings just before last track day but otherwise just good maintenance. It's bone stock except needles shimmed .017" and still runs, drives, and looks (almost) like new. BTW, second track day at Beaverun it was advanced to the "fast" group so it's not like it's getting "putted" around. It's been an excellent bike!
