Congrats.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.

Ya got me beat. Sadly, I traded in my Honda Shadow last summer at 71,493 miles.
I loved that bike and to be sure, it was mechanically still rockin.' I had hoped and was confident I could get 100K miles on it, but it developed some electric problems during a trip that I just couldn't track down when I got back home no matter how much I tried.

Got it fixed? Yup. Hit the road. Crap, there it goes again.

With a lot of other maintenance soon due and only another week before departing on a multi-week trip, I traded it in and bought a C50 (Which is why I'm here now), already set up by the previous owner for touring (though from the looks of it, it rarely left the garage. )

The C50 had about 19000 miles on it when I took it home...

...Now I gotta start all over again.
Looking foward to it, too.

Have you had any major repairs - new rings, clutch, etc?

You cats do a lot of riding. My 2007 has about 11,000.


100,000 looks out of sight for my bike.

There have been a handful that made 100k but most are long dead by that point. I think the bikes that did were all carbed and not FI.
