02 Standard

I bought this bike 7 years ago with 23K, yesterday she rolled over 100K Original clutch and Final drive
I need to review my maintenance records and see how many gallons of oil and Tourances she has consumed over the last 7 years

Here's my '02 Adv. Taken on my recent trip up to Alaska. On the trip it turned 50,000 miles. Only issue on the trip was that the fork seals started leaking. Easy enough to fix. Great bike!

That's one SWEET LOOKIN' BIKE!! I didn't even notce the black engine until something was said about it. DAMN, you just made my search more difficult. I already know I want an 1150, now I HAVE to find one with the black engine, that just looks bad ass!

I hope you enjoy riding her the way she was meant to be, like LA traffic won't be enough of an adventure!!

Good luck, now give us some pix of her dirty!
