I have an 05 that just clicked over 18k, I bought it last June with 5400mi and already more than doubled it in 10 months (yes, I can count, it sits all winter and I also had to end my season early last year due to a broken foot at the end of august) I should be well over 25k by the end of the season, maybe enven more since I just broken up with the ball and chain and been riding a ton more miles because now I have no one getting pissed that I'm hanging out with my friends instead of her because she too drunk to go on the back of the bike most of the time.

that sux. im going through the same thing. had surgery 2 weeks ago.

i parked the bike with just getting over 16k miles. i average about 50 mpg if I cruise at 65-70 mph. If I cruise at 80 mph I'll get about 45 mpg.

Thats amazing how many miles you have gotten out of your bike. When you say "take care of them" do you do anything different that is specified in the Honda maintenance intervals? How often do you change oil?

Pretty much, yea... and don't abuse the living crap out of them every time you ride. Besides regular oil changes, I usually change the fork oil, coolant, and brake fluid out once a year. It payed off with the forks, as my original fork seals lasted for 176k before they started leaking. Still have yet to replace a water pump, brake master cylinder or caliper... fluids are always clean. Chain is always kept clean and lubed, as close to every 500 miles as I can. Valve adjustments, throttle body sync, spark plugs, clean air filter..... pretty much follow the maintenance schedule and you're good to go

I change my oil every 5000 miles... Mobil 1 10w-40 and a Purolator PureOne filter (just changed it today as a matter of fact)

That means you've cleaned and lubed your chain almost 400 times. You could proably do it in your sleep by now. How many chains have you gone through? Tires? Do you still ride it hard?

Hahah oh man... I have no idea anymore on those. I think I lost count at a dozen sets of tires and prob around the same number of chains. I've learned a ton over the last couple years about making stuff last as long as possible. At one time I made the mistake of doing the 520 chain and aluminum rear sprocket thing... big mistake. I was replacing (properly maintained) chains every 12-15k. Got fed up with that and went back to 525 and steel rear sprocket, found a combination of chain and sprockets that works awesome, and even though it's a little pricey it lasts 3x as long. My last set of chain and sprockets had 40k on them before it got a kinked link. I've experimented with a number of different tires, and the best I've found for rears so far are the Pilot Road 2's. Great grip, and so far 14k on my current and it's still got good tread. Front I stick with a regular Pilot Power, got 13k out of my last one

I really don't ride it that hard anymore.... I've already had my 'young and stupid' phase when I first started riding, and rode like an idiot everywhere for probably the first 2 years. In that 2 years we went out every single sunday morning to the everglades and just rode wide open, throttle pinned for hours and hours on end (south florida = straight and flat everywhere). So needless to say, my bike has spent it's fair share of time sitting at redline, lol. I was very lucky that nothing ever happened to me, and after watching some friends go down hard in front of me, and a few others get killed, I finally realized how stupid some of the stuff I was doing really was, and it slowed me down tremendously. Now days I pretty much just cruise and enjoy the ride, and make it back home safely without anymore close calls. I might still get on it every once in awhile, but nothing like I used to. Plus now that I live here in the mountains, it's kinda stupid anyways... not the kinds of straightaways like there are down in FL. Throw me some curves any day!

I do plan on doing a trackday at some point before she dies though :)
