In over 50k miles on street I've only oiled a chain once. I replace them every 10k, and the sprockets too if needed.

I may head out tomorrow. Wish I'd have seen this thread sooner AJ because I had no idea it was this week and my bike isn't really setup for longer range rides yet. Booooooooo. I'll see what I can do.

Where is this 700 Ten? I hadn't heard any rumors about that. I'll poke around and see if I can find some poorly drawn images and made-up specs somewhere.

So...you're saying the DR line won't get an update? Most of these manufacturers are breaking new ground, including Yamaha. I'd expect nothing less from all UJM this year.

I don't mind the styling on the XJR1300, but I still don't see the point of it. It's like a retro drag bike with limited use.
