High mileage bikes...100,000 on a 2010 Kawasaki Concours

My boss' 78 year old father just rolled past the 100,000 mile marker on his 2010 Kawasaki Concours. He also owns a Ural w/ a sidecar, and a BMW GS650. What's your highest mileage motorcycle?

Wow! Even more impressive is where he and that bike have been in those 4 years! Pretty much destroys the misconception about sport bikes and how many miles you can rack up!

My 88' FZ600 hit 86k before I sold it. I rode the out of that thing for 2 1/2 years back when gas was 87 cents a gallon. Bought it brand new when I was 17.

have over 100k on my '87 venture, about 25k of that was over the first 2 years I owned it, probably haven't put more than 7k on this year (no long trips, using the Sprint to commute primarily the last month or so, also had the Venture with a sidecar I used on weekends)

That C14 sure is a mile eater. Really liked my '09 but don't go on long enough tours to justify keeping a big rig around.
