Loved the notation of the 440,000 mile R11GS.
Makes my 50,000 miles apiece on my 2 R11**Gs very pale in comparison.
Yep, cold as hell - and humid when it rains
. Lovely scenery tho!
Hank is a decent guy himself too, we spent a good few days together with him in Santiago (
). He's currently over 450 000 miles
(720 000 km) with his R1100GS - all engine still stock! He rides it offroad too, he did even Southern-Bolivia (no roads - just trails!) with the same bike. Just plain stunning reliability per this mileage IMO.
