Bought new, broke in using the motoman method (rode it like I stole it)
Changed oil at 20, 100, 200 miles then every 5K since.
55mpg all the time
Brought in for valve adjust, last time valves were adjusted were at 15K, Checked at 45K and 65K
NO ADJUSTMENT NEEDED STILL IN SPECK
40K miles since the last valve adjust and they are STILL in speck.
Between the MPG vs. my truck and the utter lack of repairs the bike has literally paid for itself more than once over.
Best bike I ever had and still going strong.

After a string of BMWs, I just got a new 2010 650 Vstrom, and must say, why did I wait so long.
This is a great bike, plenty of go, and great on fuel.
