Last weekend I hit 11,600 miles. The most miles I ever put on one bike is 11,5?? on my Bandit 600 back in the mid '90s. Typically I only keep a bike about 2 years than get the itch for something else. But I've had the 650R for 2 1/2 years and have NO intention of getting rid of it. It's paid for, reliable, comfortable, and alot of fun to ride.
