thanks giodog , it looks like this is the bike to be on, what is the highest milage you guys heard for those to turn with no many issues ? i know this question would fit better on a older 640 adv bikes. I heard 50k miles as far as longevity. True? Not?

Mine has close to 9000km on it and no issues. Blinkers and mirrors are crap BTW so thats the first thing that needs fixing if you go offroad and tip over a few times...Otherwise , no problemo.
