Highest Mileage
« on: October 20, 2014, 06:32:30 pm »
Sorry about the double post. I missed seeing the poll link.

I am conducting an informal survey on high mileage TTSE's in order to make some assessment of reliability. I have a 13 that has had some issues (most recent was catastrophic engine failure) and I am wondering if it was due to being an early model or high mileage or both.

There are 3 of us Iron Butt types here in the US that have the clocks over 40,000 miles.

Are there any other members with mileage in excess of that?

Are there any other members that have had a major engine failure? If so, at what mileage?

thx much,

I believe you will find that donmoe is over 65,000.  But I don't believe him to be an "iron butt" type.  I think he is retired and just likes to ride

I only have 16,000 miles.  Bought it three months ago with 6,000 on it.  I usually do 20,000 per year so will be interested to see how many high mileage bikes are out there.

Later

Only 14,000 so far but that was in 18 months and considering it took me 6 years to do that on my last bike I think I must be enjoying the TT! LOL

The Beast is a little over than 1 year old and I have about 11,500 mile on her.
My mother asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. I said "a biker". She said I'd have to choose one or the other.

I am just about to turn over 50,000kms since mid November 2013. After the ECU change at 13,000kms no issues. I just completed a ss1600 (metric) on the weekend, riding 1600kms to and from the start point.

I bought mine two weeks ago with 7152 miles on it...now has 8643.  It's in the shop right now, but only to get the fork seals done and a few other minor things...engine ran fine for the first 1500 miles I put on it.
