90k miles - yea baby!



To answer most of your questions, yea I have done most of the fixes and repairs spoken here on Orange Crush.
The things I have always kept consistent with is, Warm my motor before riding and change the oil every 2,500 miles.

I seem to have slowed down a bit and only added ~10k in the last year.

Very cool! I almost don't want to know but what is the most major work you've had to do? I assume all the ussual stuff like water\fuel pump, clutch slave, etc. Anything more major that those?

Nice. I'm about 35,000 behind you. However, with the hell I have put my bike through I'm surprised its not a pile of parts. Its been hit by a pickup, slid down Mexican asphalt at 70 mph, tumbled down rocky hill climbs quite a few times, ridden hard to the bottom of the world and back, buried in amazon mud bogs, and, well I better shut up now or I will never be able to sell it here.

The 9X0 has got to be the toughest big adventure bike out there, except for the SE of course.

Check back in at 100K! That's great news, keep it up!

I've slowed up too. Did 20K my first year, now at 50K. The miles are coming more slowly, but are getting more and more gnarly...
