Rhys Lawrey did 56,800 miles on his round the world trip on a Tiger XC. Didn't even get a puncture I believe.

My 9/2013XC is just shy of 30,000 miles and waiting for Muddy Sump todo the  next service.   These are just pleasure miles, not commuting . No problem so far

My 2011 had 42,000 miles on the clock after 3 years of ownership before I sold it about 18 months ago, dealer serviced and used almost every day  :028:

November 2011, first owner, my own 93000 km's, and still doing great. Every 20k dealer service and in between self service oil and filter change and usual checks. I think the 100000 km will need a cam chain replacement and head bearing renewed.

Why?

The best I remember there are no "head bearings".

My 2012 is at 44,4xx US miles.  Haven't ridden as much as I would like to in the last couple years.

60000KM on my 2012 Roadie.  Had the 30k km done by the dealer and won't be back to them.  Need to balance my throttle bodies this week but other than fork seals and regular parts (Chain, sprocket, brake pads, etc..) I've had no trouble.

One of the riding regulars around here has 67,000 miles on his Xr, no issues to report.  He did need to install a new shock, as well as swing arm bearings somewhere around the 50K.  Chains seem to go for him about 10K between replacements, tires need to be replaced in the 6 to 8K range, just regular stuff.

I think it's safe to say with regular maintenance I'll last until you don't want to ride it any more and are lusting for something new.  :031:

My bike has 23k on it with full history and lots of extras. I am trying to make a decision whether to change or get a 24k service and top suspension  :465:

Well, then the question is:  Do you want a new bike?  If you do what would you replace it with? :300:

It's safe to assume that your bike has quite a bit of service life left, I think, so it would be cheaper to just give it what it needs, but not if you are going to trade it in on something new.
