Thanks for all the nice compliments everyone, but anyone here can reach this milestone you just need to ride!  :motonoises:

One question I have gotten often is how far do I commute? I have never commuted & never well, nor do I run errands on it. Every single mile has been traveling or nice long day rides.  :)

Curious, at what intervals did you check the valves? Ever change the gas filter? Any oddball repairs you can think off?

Valves were done at 64,000 - 120,000 & 195,000.

Changed fuel filter around 140,000.

Nothing but the one little electrical glitch I had a few years ago.

Dang man....that's over $6,000 worth of tires you went thru doing your 200K. You must have an amazing old lady to put up with that. :) Congrats.

You're a little off, installed my 38th set yesterday. 38 X $250.00 average = $9,500.00!  :'(

She's the one that does my tire buying, never let's me run out of stock. Knows my brand & size!  :)

This belongs to my friend Denise:http://www.ridemsta.com/mstaforums/index.php?topic=1805.msg11537#msg11537
posted November 2016. I hope one day I can learn to ride "like a girl" ;D  Her local dealer through a big party for her at the 200K mark.
 
Is this miles or kilometers?

Wow! Congrats.
I've always said that these things are way under stressed considering what it was designed for, and you have proved it. I do wonder though. Besides great engine maintenance, what else have you had done as far as seals, bearings, electronics, and suspension to get to that milestone.
