How many miles does your V have?

I'm just curious - how many miles can you get out of a Versys? I know the guy in Santa Fe that has his listed for sale on here has 52k, anybody beat that?

I KNOW I've read of someone OVER 100,000 miles, which I can believe. (Me? 43,000 miles on one, 24,000 kms on t'other.)

27,400 miles. Plan on riding it until there is nothing left which means I may not get another bike, ever.

870 miles! Got a ways to go but glad to see the V is up to the challenge.

Every time I check my mileage I'm amazed. I'm sitting at 3500. I'm amazed it isn't more.. I ride this thing all the time. Then again I'm mostly just a commuter and my ride is 8 minutes one way to work.

Passed 30,000 miles on our 17 month anniversary last week. If I'm gonna put a lot of miles on a single bike this would be a great one to do it on. Though I might eventually change the windscreen.

Sitting at over 40K on the odo, with the various sprocket swaps I've done, it's probably closer to 43-44k.... With a nice chunk of those off-road.

43k km.
I rode 13k km/yerar, but since my baby 2 years old Elettra was born, I ride only for home-work-home commuting that means about 3-4k km/year: no more ride for fun.

Nobody thinks that something is so easy like who is totally unable to do it.

Amir - NICE to read a post from you (don't believe I've seen another for about a year or so...).
