Thanks, w8d4it!  I'm currently in Idaho Falls, ID at the Concours Owners National rally and my Trophy has just turned 29,290 miles since I took delivery in early January. I always take my laptop along on tour so that I can check email and the various forums.

Thankfully my bike has not had any of the early-model glitches that have affected others' bikes. It's been running very well. In another 1,800 miles it will be time for the third 10K scheduled service and also another new rear tire (Michelin PR3 is my current favorite).

5,500 miles since March. Mostly commute miles. 64 miles round trip. I find the bike so comfortable, handling and weather protection so good, I dint even look at the weather any more before going to work. I used to have 30-40-50 rule.  I would take the bike to work if, 30% or less chance of rain, it was 40 degrees or greater in the AM, with the promise of 50 degrees or greater for the commute home. NOW. I dint need no stinkin rule. My wife is horrified to see me leave for work in the rain, or with huge heavy ominous black clouds and the distance rumble of thunder. Ok, maybe 30 degrees or snow will be my new limit to commute on the TT.

~64k miles... Yeah I know, second hand old 900 model!! But I like joining in!!  :158:

Just over 6k miles Since buying it 3 months ago. Technical problems, where do I start?...  :745:

Head rocker cover leaking
Carbs majorly clogged up
Carbs out of balance - A LOT!
O rings on the starter and generator motors leaking
Clutch master cylendar leaking - badly!
Forks aren't leaking, but very low in pressure, could bottom out the front suspension standing with my body weight!!  :183:
Overheating - Themostat valve wasn't opening... simply cut it off and with a hack saw and put it back in as an O-ring gasket!

Have spent £1400 on Doris since I bought her and I'm stillconvinced she's a cracking bike!!
...on an old 900  :164:
