Since January 28, the odometer on my 2012 650 V-Strom says 25,736 miles. Another 360 miles tomorrow with a trip to Herndon, VA.

Bought my Vee with 24k on it in feb. Its is now officially put away for winter(-12C and snow on the ground) with just over 30k,

6000 miles isnt too bad for only using it on the weekends

Less than 500 miles, twenty miles at a time.

I have osteoarthritis and other physical problems. I usually end up changing oil after only 500 or 600 miles per season. It doesn't look like things will improve in the future. After that 20 mile ride I'm pretty well laid up in pain the next day. But that little ride feels very exhilarating. I know I should sell both bikes but it's hard to let go completely.

I'm a bit over 42,000 km or just over 26,000 miles since I picked up my 2012 in March.

Replacing the wire harness took about 5 months, I didn't trust any of the used ones I looked at, they were all compromised in some way (tapped into for aux power?) New harness was backordered frm J A Pan, I really don't plan changing my riding habits, so exposure to corrosive conditions is something that will happen again I'm sure even though I've taken extraordinary measures

Now, I'm considering a PC, I never experienced the lean conditions that is common to Vees, now I am
