    Yesterday I hit the 100000 mile mark on my Trophy. It has been a great adventure, but I still love the bike. Having said that if has taken me two motors to get to this mark. I had valve problems with the first one starting around 30000 miles and it continue till about 47000 when it got so weak and hard to start that i pull it and found burnt valves. Found a replacement the was low milage and change it out. It never used any oil during that time. New motor now has over 55000 miles and is running as strong as the day i put it in. So now at this point the bike is worth nothing for trade in or resale value I will continue to ride it till i can know longer ride. (old age) Here to next 100K.

    Congratulations.

    I only have 65,000 on my 2016 from new bike, been out today for another few miles of smiles.

    Ride safe and enjoy.

    100,000 miles is impressive (and you’ve still got 2/3rds of a tank full left, so it should be good for 300,000 miles then :007: ).

    At least we now know that it doesn’t go back to 0 at 100,000 miles 👍

    Congrats, Quentin!  Hopefully we can get together for a ride this year!

    I got a ways to go to catch up for sure.  The only bike I have put a 100k on so far was my last 'Wing and it got rear-ended and totaled at bout 130k, almost all (120k of it) mine.

    But, 30% of the way there is better than 20%.

    Happy riding!

    Congratulations, what a great milestone; few have the desire to ride that much and fewer yet on one machine.
