    I'm certainly jealous. That's a lot of riding. I doubt if I'll ever see 100K on either of my rides. Not from lack of desire though and I intend on keeping them for the long haul.

    Congrats,

    Congratulations! Any secrets to your (and Igors') success? What oil do you use? Any major overhauls along the way?

    Talking Igor success

    Roger....nuttin' special.......bike has rarely been ridden for less than 30 minutes, usually 1 hour or more......very easy on any engine....

    -religious oil (only) changes every 2500 miles (Spectro 20w-50)
    -oil FILTER changes every 5 or 10,000 miles
    -religious valve lash check every 3K miles
    -shut fuel off3-5 minutes before shutting engine off....consumes most of fuel in bowls.
    -now using Stabil "blue" (marine applications) for eth gas....use REAL gas most of the time
    -new valve seats ages ago by Oak, trans o'haul by Oak years ago (circlip).

    ,,,thanks fer askin'!!!

    Threadus resurrectus. My R1150RTP has been down for a month. I normally ride every day. I hate putting miles on my R75 (well, I enjoy puttin miles on my R75, but like the odometer where it is), but I'm about to give up and start riding the R75/6 every day, at least for the next week, 90 miles round trip. This bike is normally reserved for weekend spins close to home.
