100K Day happens tomorrow!
« on: November 26, 2016, 04:35:52 am »
My trusty old steed sits 240 miles short of 100,000 after today's ride. Tomorrow will be the day she thinks she's brand new again.

I've been looking forward to this day since buying my C10 in April 2007. She was already halfway there, but I had no clue she would be this wonderful while taking me on her next 50,000. She's gonna get a well-earned brake & suspension service after this feat. After that...we'll just keep going. No desire/need/funds for a newer ride, and the Super Sherpa will handle the dirty work from here while Connie gets babied on the nice (and fast) roads.

 Congrats!  :motonoises:
 Yeah first time on my '98 it seemed amazing  mc would be this reliable and durable. Same with the '01
 The '03 aka the ZGRX 1200 is <10k to go on the frame but 40K to go on the engine.

Tom,
I hope I can get my old 91 to that century mark.  Congrats on that and a Super Sherpa,  lets get together and compare the Sherpas sometime.  Mine is a 2000 I brought back from the dead like the 91 Connie.

Lol agreed!  Problem is reducing size of pics so forum will allow posting.  Dern phone cameras are getting too good & I wasn't thinking of reducing size just for posting here.

Got some computer work to do tonight...we'll see what happens then.
