I have a 2008 1100 custom. I have about 13K on it now. How many miles do you have and what problems if any have you encountered?

Bought an '02 650 back in April. The previous owner put 300 miles/year. I'm putting 300 miles/week these days, and feel like I'm buying gas every day!

I'm up to 7K miles, so the 1st major service is coming at me.
I've had to replace the battery only so far, but need new tires. Suggestions?

12.5 k

Hi,

I traded a non-pristine (but very cool) '75 FJ40 for a pristine '03 with 12k miles about 3-weeks ago. This is my 1st Cruiser bike after many sport and sport touring bikes. I love the laid-back style and of course the sound. At first it was hard to get used to the busy-ness at higher speeds (85-90), but I soon learned you don't often ride cruisers at those speeds for very long anyhow. Now, I'm enjoying my 15 mile commute more than ever.

Got a brand new 2010 V Star 950 T in May with zero miles on it.
So far this season I've put just over 5200 miles on it. We've got
about a month left of riding weather here in Buffalo, N.Y.. So
if it ever stops raining I can put a few more miles on it befor
I have to store it away.

'02 1100 Silverado. 21k when we rode it home this past March (at a balmy 33 degrees), 29k on it now. I'm hoping to hit 10,000 for the year before it gets parked for the winter. That's pushing it, I know, since we've already had a couple of sub-40 degree mornings for the ride to work, but we'll see...Wisconsin can be unpredictable this time of year!
