My sorry attempt at humor.

Have you put 100K on other bikes? With reasonable maintenance I cant' see why it wouldn't make it.

One of the first ones they sold at Romney Cycles is now happily running along with over 120K miles on it now.
They see it for some service calls, that is about it.

Owner uses it for work travel, gets paid mileage.

Wow, a useful thread in 'beasts', go figure.


I've been eyeing the Super Tenere as a possible commuter now that it has cruise control. Splitting lanes last night in the dark on the Goldwing made me wish for a narrower bike, but I need longevity from an engine since it's got to do 60,000 miles per year.

I don't think I would worry a bit about putting that sort of mileage on that bike/engine.

Split lanes enough with that Goldwing and you'll have a narrower bike.

With just over 86.000 km on my completely OEM S10 I can honestly say that this bike is absolutely the best. Not once has it left me standing by the side of the road and I have done days on end on grueling off road terrain with some very hard drops.
Thus far I have only done regular maintenance and had a differential seal replaced under warranty, all in all not bad I would think.
So if you can handle a big bike and you’re looking into buying something of a pack mule that will take you everywhere and then some then look no more.
The reason that I say big bike is because she it not some under 400lb lightweight and when down while being fully loaded with gear, can be a real challenge to get up. This of course applies to all the big bikes out there.

Hope this helps you out.

Jeff

Smileage you wouldn't be worried if your Toyota or Honda car had some miles,It's not a big deal if you get something for a good price it's a Yamaha they make pianos,guitars spy helicopters quiet generators and a ton of other really awesome stuff so you can sleep at night .

I've been skimming the big Super Tenere thread and noticed the wheels and spokes don't last as long as the engine. WTHeck is up with that?

There's one REALLY old guy, who keeps breaking 'em. I can't recall his name.

At his age, though, it's probably "operator error".





P.S.- I think he just had a birthday...as if he needed another one.
