Came back from Eureka CA to Portland OR, probably doing 80-90mph most of the way, over 400miles. Loaded with enough gear for 3 weeks. No issues. I have over 20k miles on my V, most of it hard miles, whether on or off road (logging forest etc). This bike is almost bullet proof.
Change the oil on a regular basis every 2000-3000miles, lube the chain every 300 or so (I'm still on my original chain and sprockets).
I recently abused it above an beyond the call of duty (thanks Al & DW) riding miles through trails and ending up on 20 miles or so of heavy sand. High revs, numerous falls (that would be you DW) and clutch slipping. V is as good or better than the day I bought it.
If you can wear it out, treat yourself to a new one-you'll drop before it does!
While I type this in the comfort of my home, sipping a glass of cheap wine, Gary a fellow Northwet Versys guy is riding from here to Tera Del Fuego, currently in central America somewhere on his Versys, Guatemala I believe.
