Unhappy Sold The Old Grey Mare

Well, I sold the '99 with 223,500 miles on it. So now I'm riding a low miles 2000. I'm not sentimental at all, but I swear that old bike is smoother, and handles just a little better!

Thumbs up Sold the Grey Mare

Wow! I need to start riding like that. I envy all the riding you have been able to do.

Enjoy the new (to you) bike.

Some people swear the engine is not broken in for at least 30-40K miles... So with your apparent track record there should be no problem getting there, give it another week or 2.
