I'm knocking on 15000 miles on my 18 Turban. Bought it with 3000 on the clock last year in September so 12000 in 11 months. Covid has really put a damper on my riding but planning a 3000 mile ride out west in the US in three weeks. Heading to low Covid virus infection states. Have a couple of 500 plus days baked in t o get to the mountains, then 2 to 3 hundred mile sight seeing days. Hope it cools off in September.

Replying you this post again, as I recently hit 22,000 miles.
Surprisingly still have a lot of front brake pad material showing. It's not even hitting the groove indicators yet.
On my 2nd rear pad replacement.
I keep to the maintenance schedule.
Will probably spring for a new battery when I hit 24K, as the gas tank needs to be lifted for the air filter replacement.

I put 110,000 miles on my 07, a friend has 140,000 on his 2012. Neither has had any major engine work. Overall the oil head and hex head motors are considered very capable of high mileage.

Edit: both were GSA models with the same boxer style motor. The R nine T wasn't around in 07 and 12. I did 40,000 miles in the first two years with the 07.

3800km /2600mi, it is a personal disgrace for me :)
The bike was bought in 2019, but then for the last 6 months, I was marooned in a country away from home due to the existing pandemic.

12,500 miles on my 2020 R9T Pure, which is in the shop getting the front wheel bearings replaced, as well as its 12K service. Very unusual for wheel bearings to go bad at just 12,000 miles, and thankfully it's being covered under warranty.

12500 on on my 2020 Scrambler. I did my 12000 mile service a few weeks ago and have one exhaust valve right on the edge of spec. Other than that, just tires and standard maintenanc.

My RnineT 2020 (-19) has 12077 km on ODO - in my ownership 9500 km since September 2020 and no troubles except a low fuel warning indicator repaired as a warranty case. Regular service intervals are followed and I am planning new tires summer 22. Keeping battery level ok with regular loadings through the season and winter hibernation.

2018 Scrambler just turned 30K miles. Never had any dealer service performed. Motul 7100 oil changes every 5K and other routine maintenance. Noticeably smoother engine and shifting after 20K mi. and she just keeps getting better. Love to exploit the torque but it eats the rear tires !!!

10255Km on my 2021. Rolled 10000km a few days before my 1 year celebration. 10K maintenance complete by the dealer. Otherwise I've added 1.2L of oil in the year and somehow managed to go through a set of rear brakes (which is weird, and yes, I've gone down the rabbit hole in the "brakes" posts on this site). Love the bike.
