I have 72,000 on my 2007 Bonneville, but I live in a year-round riding climate. It surprises me to measure that as three times round the world. The high mileage thing bothers me on a couple of fronts. One is where forums seem to attract a lot of advice from a lot of readers but there is rarely any discussion about how many actual miles they may have ridden the bike in question. "I have just done my first thousand miles with absolutely no problems..." Well, no shit, I don't rate that as much of an endorsement for any machine. The other thing about high mileage questions is the re-sale value thing that some buyers get into. I'd buy gold if I were seeking a physical investment rather than second guessing the value of a motorcycle a few years down the road. That said I know my Bonneville has no value at all in a market with used Bonnevilles racking up a thousand miles a year if they are lucky. I have no idea how long it takes to ride a Hinckley Bonnevile into the ground, but I guess I'm going to find out.
