I have had a thread on ADV for the last two moto have had had documenting options added, PM, problems encountered etc. Here is a link to the 990 Adventure I am still riding if you are interested: http://advrider.com/index.php?threads/how-long-will-a-990adv-last-part-2.948231/ I am retired and from Mississippi, USA, but live in Mexico with my wife. We travel at least 50% of the time and will shortly be using the African Twin as our transportation. In the last five years I have ridden an average of 36,000 plus miles per year. Most of the miles have stretched from North Mississippi to the Darrien Gap in Panama. But, I might add our travel days are increasing, but our mileage is actually decreasing a bit. I have only ridden 19,400 miles this year. We fully intend on using this moto in South America. I don't actually have my African Twin yet, but it has been paid for and I am only waiting for my Mississippi Title to arrive to my MS residence and then I will go get it! I have had the moto on order since February, but it was held up by the earthquake in Japan. My dealer was recently told a Red DCT would not be available this year, so he found a silver DCT and is changing the tank and plastics from the red manual he had in stock to the silver moto.
