    how many miles?

    whats up everyone ,Jmac here. was just wondering about mileage on sportbikes. I ride an 05 f4i with almost 90,000 and have never gone into the motor.I ride like I stole everytime its fired up, amd well, I was just wondering how many others out there have a lot of miles on original parts.

    I had 70,000+ on my 900rr before I was hit by a cargo van last year and destroyed the bike It still started up faster than any bike I've ever owned. And it also still rode like a dream

    I now have 2 1000rr's. 2006 for the street and a 2008 that's for race only. The '06 has almost 40,000.

    So keep changing the oil and riding like you stole it and you should get another 90 from that Honda.

    I have over 35k on my 2007 ZX-14.
    In 2014 I had the motor completely rebuilt, not because I needed to,
    but because I wanted to.

    I don't have many miles on my bike....I spread them around to a few. BUT I will not get rid of my R1 until it hits 100k +.

    “I guess it's because we all want to believe that what we do is very important, that people hang on to our every word, that they care what we think. The truth is, you should consider yourself lucky if you even occasionally get to make someone - anyone - feel a little better. After that, it's all about the people that you've let into your life.”— J.D.
