207,000km on courier\'s K3

I talked to a bike courier today who was riding a K3.
He told me that his bike has 207,000km on the odometer. Motor has never needed repairs.
I found this amazing and thought I better share this with the guys at Gixxer.com.

That's about 129,375 MILES! i think... if im right, that is a lot, but when you say courier it brings thoughts of someone put putting the bike around. Then again i don't know what a bike courier IS. But, They will last forever if you never ride them hard.

In the early '90s I put 105,000 mi on a Honda Hawk V-twin (which wore out that engine) and then 24,000 mi on a 600F2 (which did nothing to it, was still like new) doing courier work around LA. The miles add up quick. Good for the K3. That was a few chains and tires I bet.

Regular maintenance, synthetic oil. and not redlining the shit out of the motor when it's cold will go a long way towards a motor seeing a lot of miles.
