Os comparto el momento mágico del pase a los 600.000 kms de la f800gs.
I am sure that many inmates here would love to see an update of the maintenance log that you have posted at previous milestones.
Awesome to see our motors go that far!
Stock valves and pistons?
Impressive to be sure but really, a lot depends on the type of miles put on and, of course, the maintenance schedule and how well it was kept up. There is really no reason a modern motor should not go that distance or more. It does require an attention to detail and the skills to pick up on minor problems before they become major ones.
That’s way more impressive of you than the bike. That mileage makes an average of _at least_ 165 km/DAY over the entire ownership of the bike!!! Respect!
On a STOCK SEAT?
How many timing chains? Congrats, very impressive!
Thanks for posting, very impressive.
As asked above, would be great to see you updated maintenance logs.
Also, generically your riding? Obviously given your rare brake pad changes you’re not dodging goats, speed bumps, people, etc in Africa.
Finally any special tips for us mortals to get some fraction of your miles? Synthetic oil? Etc? You can’t start a joke and not deliver the punchline...
Por si resulta de interés.

Thanks for posting.
Even more impressive is your record keeping.
I only just passed 42k miles arriving in Cape Town, but over 40 countries. Quite a beating on the ride south from Cairo, with the only non scheduled items being a leaking K&N filter, an easily cleaned weeping fork seal, and my chain guard broke off. The Namibia terrible gravel roads must have shaken it to death.
PLEASE post a picture of your machine.
My math says better than that!
Are those Canadian miles? :)
Wow, and I thought I was doing well with 130,000 miles on my 2010 f650gs!
