There are quite a few 100K+ LTs out there, and coming across some with 150+k isn't that hard. Don Arthur had over 300,000 miles on his LT before it got flattened by a car on the way to the Iron Butt Rally a couple of years ago. 117+K of those were put on in 1 year.

And +1 what Dave Dragon said - ride it, maintain it, fix it when it needs it, ride it again.

The shortest distance between two points is for people who don't ride!

I will out last most cars if maintained. They don't call it the brick for nothing.

You have to grow up to have a mid-life crisis!!!!!

I could play with women or with cars, I find cars are cheaper and you can write a book about cars a guy would understand.
