Highest mileage

Who has the bike with the highest mileage here?
My 500 has over 102,000. Can anyone top that?

On a side note:
It has the original engine, and does not burn any oil.

Good job, it's good to see you enjoying your bike to the max, keep riding and smiling

I've been riding motorcycles since I was thirteen years old and now I am almost forty, so that's 27 years of riding fun, and my total mileage estimate would most probably be a crazy number!

When I was younger I remember being literally glued to the saddle but now it's more quality time since I can walk to my job and use my Er as a joy machine to leave the city buzz behind and clear my head

Wow, trusty machine! What kind of maintenance schedule do you run on? Motor oil, brake pads, fork oil?
I have a 2007 ZX14 and it goes like a freight train but I've been considering a second, smaller bike. A 500 seems like it would be a handy lightweight weapon for those quick trips around town.

The only motor oil I have ever used is Spectro4 non-synthetic. Change it every 2000 miles.
Been using Bel-Ray fork oil. Change that every 25,000 miles.
In the past I have used EBC brake pads. Also Galfer. But the last few years I have been using organic Caltric pads.

I follow the maintenance schedule pretty close.

Mine's only done 48000, but looks like (at times) that it's done over a million.

Yeah, riding in the rain can get it really nasty.
