I feel like the better I get to know my bike, the more fun it becomes.

Coast2Coast I wish I lived in a place I could get that much riding done in, I'm so damn jealous. I managed to put 43000 miles on an R1 in 5 years but to do that I had to take the damn thing half way across the contentment a few times. Its way worse than riding in florida here since our nearest "okay" roads are 2-3 hours away, nearest "decent" roads are 6 hours away and nearest "good" roads are 14 hours away. Everything near is perfectly flat and straight, like 10-60 mile long straights and the riding season is only 6 months.

-end rant, I hate winter and where i live. Last year I ended up in North Carolina for the first time, going back twice I hope this year (24 hours of driving one way :( )

Do you buy them new everytime ? You're especially losing money on all that extra "first maintenance" stuff we do in the first thousand miles. Changing oil 18 times a day and everything

Whaaaaaaa? That's just part of the game. Get your maintenance done and rip it!

Eagerly awaiting March so I can start riding again (Winter is harsh in Canada), looking at snow through the window right now.
My first thought then second notion was he's on slab only. I get between 15k and 17k on this chain:




super street; oem chain almost as good but about one click down. Ek chain is junk but only stretches and stretches and stretches yet hold up, thankfully. Sprockets depend upon how easy rear spins. If met rr on rear, rear sprocket wears out fast if not oem or vortex.

Experience indeed counts. But experience also tends to avoid 'rider' sites.
