For those of you who think a bike with over 20K miles is a "high-mileage" bike... I give you my friend Jared, who just put 200K on his 2004 CBR 600 F4i and is still going!

The video is pretty cool...

That is some serious mileage regardless of it being a bike. 200,000 miles in 6 years is over 33,000 miles a year. Nice to know the engine can handle it even though only 1 percent will ever get there.

I own a 2003 Honda Element and I just turned 250,000 miles on it... 210,000 were in the last 4 years! I can't imagine putting the same miles on my bike... makes me saddle sore thinking about it.

Good stuff. Jared is a member at VFRDiscussion.com, where I waste (er, I mean "spend") a ton of time. He posted up the news, the video and some pix over there a few days ago.

200k mi. on any machine is a lot, and especially on a bike IMO. Makes the 55k mi. mark on my '04 VFR seem kind of lame! :swink:

Approaching 17K on my '06 650R. Probably going to trade her by Spring though - so I don't ever expect to get tons of miles on ANY bike. 200K - wow! I'm impressed.

Yes, but generally it isn't a major factor in used bike sales as most people don't rack up a lot of miles on a bike unless it is a commuter.
