78,000 kms on the clock of my 2013 roadie great confidence in the bike as this is the most reliable bike I ever had... Russian Roulette? yeah maybe but there is no bullet in the gun drum

(1 chain was ruined by a dealer pressure washing the crap out of it)
That may be a new 'low bar' in dealer service ineptitude?  :187:

Don't want to tempt fate but...

No issues with my 2012 Roadie other than
  • briefly cutting out when cold - sorted by getting the throttle bodies cleaned out
  • rusty mirror stems
It's my daily commuter and I've got no intention of replacing it. I understand the newer models are better in various ways but if I ever drop this one I would be less gutted than dropping a newer shiny one.

Just get on and riiiiide (and check the chain occasionally and get it serviced now & again  :002:).
For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much - the wheel, New York, wars and so on - whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man - for precisely the same reasons. (Douglas Adams)
