Hey Honda Ho's-
Just wonderin if you folks have put miles like this on your 650L--
I bought mine, Mar. 2003, as of 7/20/06, I have rode 19,736 miles!! Thats an average of 16.5 miles every day for 40 months---If I keep this aver. up in 319 days I'll click over to 25,000-!- Goin on my 7th set of tires,do basic maintenance, on a totally stock bike except for a smaller drive sprocket. Still runs like new and is as reliable as it gets.

My 1995 XR650L has to be over 60,000 miles by now. The speedometer cable was broken for over a year once, and I kept riding and abusing it. On the odometer right now, it is at over 55,000 miles indicated.

The first three sets of speedometer cables didn't last for more than a year each. I do not know why. This latest one was installed in early 2003 and it hasn't broken yet.

Smog and snorkel removed, foam filer installed. Stock jetting. 87 octane gas, Quaker 10w-40 oil. New oil filter once a year, oil is added as needed. :thumbsup:

My 03 was bought stock and mint from original owner in 04, It had a mere 600mi.

It now has 3800+ with about 80% being put on in the dirt.... I ocassionaly take a lil street cruise or ride it to work. But I bought it for the dirt, so I try and keep it there. Just do you oil and valves when your supposed to should last for many many years.

There really isnt a more rounded and fun bike overall on the planet in my retarded opinion. Dave had it right ALL ALONG !!!

My riding buddy has a 91 XR600R, plated, has a aftermarket speedo and ODO, Has been plated and a basically daily rider since 91, has about 60K on it with only a new cam chain, and he also replaced the cam.. But he didn;t replace the cam becauuse he had to, just wanted more power. It worked, thing still runs great. I think my 96 has about 3 K on it or so, don't know for sure.

I assume the reason for asking this question is to reveal how durable the bikes are ... if someone has already posted their bike went 60,000 miles, why would anyone post they have 5 or 6 thousand miles on theirs ??? ... 'scuse me, but seems pretty lame, and desperate for post-counts ... :thumbsup:
