200,000 miles I finally made it!
« on: April 30, 2018, 11:42:51 pm »
As the title says, I made it to the 200,000 mile mark!  :) Gotta say it was a good feeling.

Bike runs as good or better than new, I credit that to the EVO flash. I still like it as much more than when new. So I guess there's nothing left to do but keep riding it.  :motonoises:

Think I'll have my 1st. oil analysis done & see what Blackstone Laboratory has to say.

I need a new sticker, who's the keeper of the stickers now?

That’s awesome Cliff.  At the risk of starting another oil thread  ;D what are you using for oil and filter and how often do you change it?

Wow, then I shouldn't worry I'm wearing my engine out as I hit 20K? Congrats on that many miles, and think of all the stories you could tell.

That’s awesome Cliff.  At the risk of starting another oil thread  ;D what are you using for oil and filter and how often do you change it?

I use OEM or K&N filters with Rotella T6 oil. Change it every 5,000 miles unless I'm traveling, then I just let go the length of trip. Typically no more than 6,000 - 7,000 miles.

Cliff gets his OWN sticker!!  :great:

Thanks for all your contribution here Cliff.  I'm sure it was tortuous riding ALL those miles!

Your penance is a seemingly never-ending trip to the tire machine.  :rotflmao:

Very impressive, Congrats!
As I am fairly new here, may I ask what year is your Concours and how long did it take to reach 200,000 miles?
