118,490...I beat the bike up on the TAT in September, rode 2500 miles back home and haven't touched the bike since. I blew the fork seals out on the trip, bought replacements and still haven't put the new ones in.
In fact, this last weekend, I washed it for the first time since before the TAT trip. It is rock solid and feels better riding now than it did when I got it. I have no doubt I will see 200,000 on this machine.
