Rolled over 30,000 miles last week riding home from our KYADVRiders Thursday night ride. I've put about 800 of those miles on it since purchasing from an inmate here. Lovin' every mile.

My speedo drive crapped out a few miles back, disintegrating the tabs in the hub that are used to drive it. My mileage is not entirely accurate, but when I put on my replacement Vapor speedo, I programmed in 80K Km (50K miles) as a reasonable estimate.

I'm now at about 81,500km. It runs like a KLR.

Two wheels and half a brain. <- BC to ON and back: KLR650 <- Inuvik 09: KLR650 and DRZ chronicle <- 3 months of moto fantasticity

My speedo cable pooped out as well, it took about a month for the new cable to arrive because they sent the wrong one. but I am now turning over about fifteen thousand. I'm headed to prudhoe for the UCC, yeah baby, I'll be pounding out more miles.

6k when I bought it in September.
Turned over 16 and 17k on my last little jaunt.

Probably sitting at around 17500 or so now. Fun times.

'08, 3200 mi when acquired last fall. 5500 when I sold it last week and it went off on its merry way. Let's hope it is a win-win situation, for the new owner, and for me, too. Sadly, I really didn't take to the beast. Instead I just got a bone stock sorted SR500 with 6k on it, and saved some coinin the process. So, its not Thumpers I don't love. But I guess we'll leave it at that, no need for any more KLR diatribes! I'm glad most people like them although, I admit I did like the tank capacity.

Just shy of 28,000 on my '02 after a 3,000 mile trip through Oregon and Nevada. Nothin' broke but a shift lever.

My 08' now has 22,150 miles on her. Just got back from a 5k mile 2 week trip a few weeks ago. My bike was loaded like a pack mule. She is a daily commuter and an occational road trip machine. She has worked flawlessly.

bought the 09 new last may with 1 mile on it, 10,700 miles as of now. It is my daily commuter. Longest single day has been about 200 miles. Longest period that it hasnt been ridden is about 3 weeks in the last year. Other than a broken speedo cable two weeks out of warranty it has been a solid preformer.
