78000 miles and running strong

WOW!!!!!!!!

That there is mileage. I am guessing you are the benchmark for wear items on the bike.

Tell us what you have HAD to fix/replace and when if possible.

You have just officially become a data resource.


Go forth and modify my son...go forth and modify...

Wow, this is awesome in so many ways. Im excited to see someone hit 100k. Sounds like itll be in no time with that commute. And i agree with gregjet. Your bike may be the benchmark for longevity.

That’s about $4,500 dollars of gas at 50ish mpg.  While my lifted jeep would be $15,500 for the same haha

Daium!! Hows the bumm holding up on that stock seat?!

 

When you say stock I take it you mean all stock, stock pipe, stock suspension, etc, etc.? Is that right?

Wow! That's a lot of saddle time in 2 (?) years. explains why you haven't posted much - too busy riding. 

 

The shock was sad when it was new. Hard to imagine it has any hydraulics left after that many miles. 

 

There was a guy on the Aprilia forum who put 150k on a Futura in Arizona doing daily long commutes like that. Modern motors are wonderful things.

Here the fuel would have cost $11,000 - your fuel is cheap!

I actually tried to guess California gas prices without googling so I assumed $3/gal ($.79/liter) but here in Texas it gets as low as $2.20/gal($.58/liter)

 

At the moment gas is pretty expensive (for us) cause of summer

a lot of gas stations here in sf are going over the 4 dollar mark, which is insane. how much is your gas faffi? I’m too lazy to do the math 😎

List price for a litre is just above 2 dollars, or almost 8 dollars for a gallon.

That's amazing, assuming you've owned it for 3 years that's roughly 71 miles per day every day for 3 years. You've got my average of about 40 miles per day for the last almost 7 months beat a tad. I just got to ~8,180 miles after having the bike since 2 November 2017.

At my current rate it'll take me 26 yrs to get that many miles. :(
