These pics are a couple of years old, but it looks exactly the same except that the peeling area of the tank is b***** now, and the seat is coming apart.

I have a special place in my heart for a red Monster! I aspire to reach your infamous mileage that Motogpfan just told me about. I have 3,000 miles added since March. Riding a bike is one of the most amazing discoveries I have ever made for myself.

Excellent. I've met a guy a couple of times around my area who has over 500,000 miles on his 1970 Triumph 750 Bonneville. He's my hero. At my current rate, I'll achieve that when I'm about 80. Gotta keep riding!

It's redundant, but I must say it:

Really?!

I'll need more info!

I crossed 20,000 this past month -- a small but significant milestone. It's never run stronger! (Or looked rattier :dblthumb )

I'll try to find out more details. A quick internet search didn't come up with anything about it.

I met him first at an event at a Ducati/Triumph/Victory dealership in OC a couple years ago. Last year, the San Diego auto museum had a motorcycle show, and his bike was there. Also, several years ago, Cycle World did an article on very high mileage bikes, and his was featured (it only had 400,000 or so then).

It's about the rattiest thing you've ever seen; makes my and your bikes look like show bikes. It's blue, with a lot of dents and surface rust and all. Big white Vetter fiberglass fairing, with stickers all over it, from everywhere.

Very cool.

Nice ride. I like the wet pavement for full effect.

always liked those exbox(?) exhausts
The bike became way more flickable too. That exhaust weighs next to nothing. The header diameter is way overkill for a 620 though, but that actually fits with my master plan.
