My car just clocked up this milestone today.
However it it still looks and runs perfectly, as do most cars at this mileage now.
Is 250,000 the ‘new’ 100,000 and what is the equivalent on a motorbike? 50,000??November 13, 2012 at 5:25 pm #64667imperialdataKeymaster
I think it depends on the state of tune of the bike. It’s certainly not unusual for cars to do > 250k miles these days.November 13, 2012 at 8:15 pm #64668
My blade has done 58k and is in great nick, despite the coils packing in. Simple fixNovember 13, 2012 at 9:13 pm #64669

My FZ600, aka ‘Baby6’ had 57,000 on it when I sold in 09. The lad still has it, but it has barely turned a wheel sinceFebruary 21, 2013 at 10:57 am #64670
Aye s’all good nowadays with good quality lubes and what not. Even if a bike did get up that high as long as you notice any unusual vibration or whatever before it goes bang, just rip it apart and fiddle inside. Bearings, seals, shells and piston rings, maybe shims and jobs a peachFebruary 23, 2013 at 1:14 am #64671
I have ridden a bike with 108,000 miles on it back when I was a courier during 1985. It was a 1979 CX500 and I have to say the Honda was absolutely knackered!February 23, 2013 at 12:27 pm #64672
That’s cos it was a cx500….May 12, 2013 at 3:02 pm #64673SneakyPeteParticipant
