Well if you want proof of how tough these old beasts are, try this on for size
Thought I'd better change the oil & filter on the 'White Beast', no probs, dropped the oil out - 'shit this is a bit dark??',
pulled the paper filter out, using a MikesXS system, 59,500kms marked on the filter, 70,787kms on the speedo, only 6,000kms overdue!!!
I really need a good kick up the arse sometimes, gotta start running logbooks again!!!
