Saw this thread again. July this year I finally broke my 31 year no crash record and threw the CBR down the road at a pretty good number. It's at 122,500. Not clear yet whether that's going to be the end of it or not. It definitely needs a swing arm and rear wheel as well as a lot of typical crash components... and a paint job.

Dad,
Sorry to hear you dropped the CBR. I know you must have quite a bond to that machine! Hope your not as banged up as the bike.
122,500 miles is pretty impressive, I hope my '04 VFR lasts me that long. I have about 12,500 on it now. Let us know what you end up doing with the 1000 etc.
Peace

Dad,
Thanks for the link, I don't know how I missed all the fun! I guess I need to visit SBW a little more regularly. I'm amazed that you came out of this so well. You're very fortunate.

I had a 2000 katana 600 I bought it with 3000 miles on it in 2003. I sold it 2 weeks ago with 27,000. Now I have a ZX9R. I love the low Rpms on the highway. I am putting sport touring BT020 tires on it very soon.

yes., about the same as the BT 020's for me....like 7500 miles for a rear and a couple K more for the front....I didnt like the stones especially the front one...I got a Pilot Sport on front and an Avon Azaro on the rear right now...the Avon tends to spin a little easier accelerating out of a corner than the Pilot road did , it stuck better but the avon will probably outlast it
