What happens when the mileometer hits “100,000”? Does it register the extra digit, or does it go back to “0”?

Wishing you well with the new bike 👍

I don’t think you were coming back on that one but, there’s no need now as I’ve just found the answer to the question anyway 👍

Africa Twins are great machines and I'm sure I'll be tempted by one when I get serious about trying the Adventure segment of motorcycling out.  Some of those BDR rides look like a lot of fun!

Good luck and be safe!

It sucks that you're leaving but your reasons certainly make sense. Best of luck with that new Africa Twin even though you'll likely not need it haha. I've heard nothing but good things about those bikes and I'm starting to see more out in the wild more frequently. Stay safe out there and don't be a stranger!

I bought a '17 Africa Twin in .. 2017 ... and I have to say the TTSE did not get much love after.  Many reasons, but mainly my back is going, and the long soft ATwin travel is easier on me, and that is exacerbated by the HORRIBLE roads we have in my locality, I think Beirut may have better tarmac!!!

and 101,000 miles is a lot on anything...

Moved up to the '21 to get cruise and electronic suspension.  Have to say the TTSE had a million times better 'interface' to the electronics, ATASES software seems to have been designed my engineers who do not ride a motorcycle and never asked any motorcyclists how THEY would like it to work...

Ah well.  Life in the 2000's....

I hope we aren't considered traitors, but it was a nice 250 mile lunch ride yesterday on our Adventure motorcycles!

Great looking scoots!  The Honda looks like a lean machine next to the BMW.

Good golly, 100,000 miles!  I sure am envious.
