    Hi Pod


    I think Skins down under has a similar high miler

    That's some impressive mileage and just shows that Dukes can be ridden I know a few Monsters that have eaten up the miles and my own did 30,000 in just under two years.

    You have your priorities well sussed too with just five posts in over seven years............ :thumbup: :thumbup:

    I wonder if that was the Blue 750 I used to see regularly around North Wales at the weekend several years back?

    You've done well, Pod.

    My white one has done just over 60,000 km, half of them by the first owner.

    My 1st 907 did 70,000+ miles (changed speedo so probably 75,000) before something down below started making horrible noises in France. It just about got us on and off the Dover/Calais ferry before dying completely at a fuelstop enroute to Essex. I had been thrashing it on the final 100 or so miles through France and when I pulled up at a toll the oil light was flashing on tickover so I presume it was ends. When trying to remove the motor the swing arn spindle was siezed so I aborted amd bought Fatbike II which is still running well with 43,000 miles on it.
