have 36K miles in the first 15 min of spring riding. 35,985 mi on bike. Last summer took the month of August and did a four corner. Maine, Florida, California, and Washington St. SO rode back northern route from Eugene, OR.
12,025 mi in 4 weeks. Had no problems at all, well except one with a stealer of a dealer in Orlando, FL. (long story) I have over 100K on the R80RT and when it was reconditioned a few yr ago, was told engine was still in original Spec.
Ride it like you stole it, and if you are concerned about maybe a problem down or on the road, get an extended warranty
