I stopped by my buddy's house last weekend that bought my Strom in early 2014. It was sitting in his garage on a tender and had not been ridden since last spring. I think it was me who lubed the chain last when I sold it to him. This bike had the valves checked twice and only adjusted slightly the first time. It has 105,000 miles on it (less than 6,000 miles since he got it). It started better than my much pampered and highly maintained Tenere. The tires had some air so I took it out for him and spanked it proper to blow the dust off it. She is running damn strong for her miles/age.
He doesn't know how to perform any maintenance and if he did he would not be interested. He is the kind of guy where machines go to die. I will let you know when it blows up.
