30000 km on my 08, hasn't even coughed once. No 'extra' things found that need doing at the services. Never even slow to start or anything. SOOOO glad I got rid of my F650 Beema, best bike ever!

... but we all knew that right?

Just about to do 2200km in 3 days (with no riding on the middle day!) and I'll check the tires, lube the chain and thats the last thought I'll give her mechanically. Hopefully I haven't jinx'd her!

33,200 miles on my 09. I know the number is actually higher as I had put a 44t rear sprocket on at around 11,000 miles which changes the acuracy of the odometer.

I have about 36,000 miles on my 08. My riding has slowed down a little bit as I have been doing more track days on the weekends.

44k miles as of this summer on my 09, however, I am now troubleshooting an oil consumption issue. Compression was low at the #2 cyclinder, 110 psi. It was consuming the amount of oil between the sight glass hashes during the last two oil changes (38k to 41 and also 44) when I started to troubleshoot.

Edit: Had the head serviced and re shimmed. Also replaced the rings. Soon as I can get another 3k on it, I will advise on the oil consumption.

40,000 miles so far. Not many issues. My fuel filter clogged once which required an entire new fuel pump.:eek: It was slow to start at one point but after I cleaned the air filter it perked right up. I learned you have to do that every 30,000 miles or so.

Angst is probably around 70k miles by now and since there are probably 2007 European V riders with more since so many use it as a primary vehicle. Even riding to work this morning in the rain I was grinning on my little gal zipping around semis.

A2RON: Really impressive!! Your statement makes me happy!:D
I gotta ask, what have you done to your bike so far? I mean except regular maintenace replacing chains/sprockets/tires.... Any major break down?
What is your oil consumtion now?
I bought my bike in October last year. Have put approx. 10 000 km's so far. I'm planning to keep it for a while. If it lasts as long as yours we are talking at least 10 years.. :)

Justgettingit: Same questions to you.
What have you done to your bike so far? Except for regular maintenace replacing chains/sprockets/tires....

I want to find out the weak points (if there are any) when we are talking really high mileage. So far I understand that the fuelpump/filter could be an issue.
