The final drive on my 02 goldwing went out at 62K. They have transmission problems, alternator drive gear problems, frame cracks and so on. No bike can claim "trouble free", although BMW does like to claim "lifetime lubrication" on key components that end up failing due to lack of it.
Never the less, I have the ability to turn a wrench and as long as I have the means, I'll ride what makes me happy and work on it when needed. It's just nice to know where trouble spots lay so an eye can be kept on them.
