So the remaining question is how well it will hold up over the long-term. When I read about how much trouble Dag Jensen has had with his (olde) Tiger in his world travels, I shuddered.
But I read one of his earlier installments and somehow he got saltwater in the engine due to improper shipping.
Ack. That might do it for any engine.
Once upon a time I ran across a site that did an expose' on a Triumph 955 engine with 100,000 miles and the internals showed no wear. But I can't find it on the web anymore.
