Thanks, I'm sure I wil hit 200k with this one, then who knows, it all depends on what kind of shape she is in, or if it ever gets wrecked, which I'm really hoping not!

This is the first other brand bike I have owned since i was 18 and to tell the truth, I'm begining to be quite pleased with my choice of ride this time, But that Darn Jinks keeps telling my about the K1200GT he saw in Daytona and then there is the much lusted after (by me anyhow) R1200GS, nothing else on the market seems to have my interest at all.

but i still think I _need_ to hit the 200k mark on this one befor i get another bike. I figure $10k per 100k miles is not a bad investment <grin> then she will become a secondary bike uh well actually I guess it would be a third bike since i still have my '58

Good memory, Dick. I need to do a 36K service on the LT, and one of the tasks will be mounting the new 200K brass roundel in place of the 100K disk.

(I'm now wondering if miles with a cane and/or a walker will count... )

well if you attach one them little mile reading things to the end of the cane and let it drag next to the bike, well then YES

<grin>

I'm not far behind you.

She had her problems in the begining as you can well remember but seems to be pretty happy lately, I'm hoping to surpass one of my Shovelhead FL mileage by a ways with this bike, it had over 250k on working speedo's there was several times she had no speedo though (go figure huh)

I thought I remembered that Bob Menton had his award roundel installed on the license plate hangar, below the plate. Butt, I just searched for a pic and can't find it, so it may have been someone else. That location won't work on Toad, cuz the Tejas state inspection sticker goes there.

Anyway, congratulations again on the mileage accomplishment. Even tho you've not ridden much this last year, you've passed Toad's mileage @ 106K, which seems to be stuck there! Hopefully, we'll catch back up with ya this year! Ride safe, Tom.
phew I took her to fl last week and she told me she was pretty ticked off at me for the lack of miles since our return from CCR, I'm going to start changing that again. yesterday was about about 17- miles to the dealer and some nice back roads back home, next week FL again. then who knows <g>
