I have 37k miles on my 2010. It'a been to South America and back and done a lot more. Great bike for traveling. Nothing has ever broken - nothing. However I did upgrade the wheel rims. I replace tires and chain as called for in the manual. Frankly there is one thing I don't trust about the 2013. They switched tuning to premium gas and got an extra 4 horsepower. But even in the US it's hard to get 100% premium due to our pumps having only one hose. I would look for a good used bike if I were you. (or remap to regular). Dave
Pavement! We don't need no stinkin pavement.
