When I was looking for another bike in Canada, a European friend that knew my riding style consisted of highway travel combined with rough road exploring recommended the Varadero. He told me that many European Varaderos had very high mileage on them and not only continued to run fine but continued to be in demand as well. I didn't believe the mileage claims at first, but found many that were over the 200 000 km mark with nothing more than oil changes.

Check.

My Mrs owns & rides a 2000 model MK1 - currently 160.000 km (100.000 miles) done with no substantial overhauling. Only the cam chain tensioners are replaced (prevention)

My 2004 model MK2 (ABS) has done 90.000 km (56.250 miles). Both bikes are bought new - with zero mileage.

My very first 1998 model MK1 still runs within the Dutch Transalp & Varadero club, the owner who bought the bike from me, is a close friend. The bike has done 280.000 km - at that mileage the engine needed replacement. The bike (Frame, electrics, etc) has now an total mileage of 320.000 km (200.000 miles) since the engine was replaced... Amazing!

Little Varadero.

Gonna cheat here. :) Here's my Varadero.... 125! :P Twas my first bike, and got me into biking. Twas a great little bike. Everyone thought it was bigger than a 125, shame it went slow :P Here's a photo of it (& another bike) before my very first bike tour, when we just went around for a few days. Now I have a Honda Transalp 650. Either a 'big' Varadero or new Transalp will be my next bike in a year or two, shame there isn't a 700cc ish Varadero...

Eventually traded it in for 2 panniers for 2 bikes. :)

Hi, guys and gals
This is my first post on the forum and I wanted it to be for the Varadero thread.

I bought my 2008 XL1000V last year(March2011) and did around 12000 km,
I did some trips with friend and my Vara was perfect but mostly i used it to go to work and for every errand that the old lady wishes.
Unfortunately in Quebec we have a Winter tire restrictions that forces us to park the bike during most part of the winter or at least the most extreme part (dec15th until Mar 15th). cant wait. for the next season. BTW I live in the Montreal area .
I will post my pics in a few week once she's groomed for the camera and ready to role.

Until the next post


Carlos.

I am lucky enough to have 2 varadero now - an 07 and a 98 (one of the first)

Both I love for different reasons.
The orange 98 model has some Ohlin rear shocks which are fantastic and at 120kms its still sweet

The 07 is a lovely bike - need to save up for ohlins though

Pic of my Varadero taken a few months ago. That`s right, it`s a Honda Varadero not available here in the states. I had it imported from Canada. It was worth the wait. More pics to come.
