> 67,000 miles, its a 2010, and its taken me to all climates and altitudes from highest point in North America to sea level, 16 degrees arctic (rockies) to 118 (desert)

Typical "day 1 mileage" of a trip........... over 1100 miles, and I stop. gets me good and away from the southeast where I live and ride anyway

about the most fun I had was off-roading the beast...adventure-bike riding for the win! The dual sport BMW bike riders couldn't believe it.

Steve you just did it for me with these photos if I could get it done today my 14 would be gone and a concours in the garage! I just don't race enough anymore to need the 14r even though when I take it for short rides it's hell on wheels and a rush

You will NOT regret it!!!

I did a fly and ride to new jersey and picked mine up brand new in '10 for $12,800 with ABS and traction control

That place is closed, but there is a place in rockingham, nc that sells then on the uber-cheap: http://www.sportcycles.com/ <---call them and ask for a leftover 2012 and its mind boggling how that nice of a bike can be purchased for so little brand new.

I don't live far from Cherry Hill, and was shocked when I learned they went out of business. I hate to ride in the winter, lowest temp in Brooklyn Belt Parkway was 18 degrees back in 1985. It was freezing cold. Now I don't want to wait until the summer to ride, so I've been looking for winter accessories. I guess those photos did it for me too.

Its ate brake pads and tires - thats my fault.

I do the oil every 5,000 miles. Its had two valve lash checks (25,000 miles apart) thus far, thats to keep good graces for the 3 year unlimited mileage warranty.

This bike is zero trouble. Haven't even adjusted the idling or throttle cable yet! ZERO trouble. And I'd like to say I've been easy on it but its ben railed in the Rockies, Adirondacks, Appalachians, Catskils, and whatever those mountains are called in the southwest.

Its been through snow, and desert sands.

I'm about to do all the Kawasaki maintenance to it because I decided to keep it and extend the original 3 year unlimited mileage another 3 years and unlimited miles. Might get 200K from this bike with no trouble.

Here is the maintenance I'm about to do as far as the replacement parts.

Just don't have enough free time. :( My dad is trying to get me to do a ride to Texas and back sometime this year on the hogs. I did an ironbutt to IN and back last year on my ZRX. I was hurting for a week after I got home! No more 1k mile rides on the ZRX! :lol:

Within the next few weeks you can have mine cheap. 2010 with 67,000 miles (and ticking every day) for $7500, it has $800 in luggage and mods. Thats stupid cheap. Buy me a return ticket back to FL and I'll even ride it out to you for the fun of it =)

But if you let me go till feb 10', I'll have invested in the extended warranty and will be targeting 200K miles on this beast Image

Yer right, I need to shoot for 200K. First, I need to get the 50K sticker for the back from the "Concours owners Group". Several have over 100K on them, but no 2010s that i know of.
