Reading Mattyr6s thread about Ex demos. I got to thinking how long bikes last.

We talking KM or Miles?

I have 27.xxx KMS on my 03. Loved every meter (foot/yard) of the way :)

I have 9K on mine. Bought it with 4700 in Feb of this year.

It better last to 35K, I'll probably be up to 11K by year's end with the cooler weather and rides coming up. I would like to see it go further since I'm starting to customize. I haven't owned a vehicle for more than 2 years in the past 17, but my buddy has 56K on his Harley and I would think the R6 would be just as reliable if not more so.

Shouldn't these things last 60K or so with good maintenance and no racing, stunting, wheelies, etc. ? (Miles) Am I living in a dream world?
