Kawasaki Builds 'em Good
Don't know if anybody here follows the Iron Butt Rally but it's a ride that lasts for 11 days and covers a minimum of 11,000 miles. Held every two years, this year's rally (which ended Friday) featured an old 2003 Ninja 250 that finished in the top 25% of a field of about 100 bikes.The vast majority of these bikes were 1100 cc's or greater.
Such a small bike, going all over the United States in 11 days in the middle of the summer is a story in and of itself, but what really stands out is that this bike had a bit over 100,000 miles on it at the start of this grueling rally! If a little EX250 can take that kind of punishment, I'd bet a Versys that is kept well maintained is capable of easily doing 200k+ miles.
