100,000 miles, 86,000 of those are mine after I bought this bike back in 2010.
The cute thing about this milestone is that it happened EXACTLY at the Colorado Wyoming border, a border I crossed many times before. I hope to make it till 200,000; I bet the bike has a better chance than me to making it.
With apologies for the dirty windshield.

That's awesome. That's a great achievement. Most people don't ride that many miles on a bike in their lifetime. They own one but really don't get to experience the road. I've been putting ten plus thousand a year on three wheels now looking to do that on two.

Congratulation....

I am working on my second Honda to go over 100,000 miles..
1983 Goldwing to 149,000 miles from New
2005 VTX1800F @ 92,500 miles from New.
when I purchase the VTX, I knew it would be my last motorcycle, getting to crippled up.

other 2) Goldwings I rode over 60,000 miles each from NEW.

for a total of 394,000 motorcycle miles since 1969,, no skipped years of riding


few motorcyclists ever total ride over 100,000 miles
reason so many VTX's are for sale with less then 10,000 miles over 15+ years.

Congrats, Henk. Many more miles for you! I'll never see that. Like Silver said, the spirit is willing but the body is weak and getting frail-er.

nice.... I just started on the journey a year ago. Bought a 2003 VTX1800R with 17000 miles, about 1000 miles a year. Long story short, she's got 34000 miles now, 17000 first year. Hope mine blows past 100000 easyas pie like yours did.

I got 70,000 miles on my 2005. Starting to wonder how many more miles I can go.

Congratulations! I just passed 100K original owner miles on my 2005 VTX1800R, which I bought out of the box in 2007. My 100K pic and moment wasn't nearly as dramatic, but I surrounded it with rides over the N Cascades Hwy, which is always fun. :)
