01 f4i with 90k. never ran right but I could't kill it. had been dropped like 5 times by 5 different people. recently passed it onto another friend. absolutely the most reliable vehicle ive ever owned. even the battery refused to go bad. ran whatever oil i had on the shelf, rotella if i felt generous.

recently bought a 675 with 45k. runs and shifts like new - i plan on running it into the ground. we'll see how far it goes.

73k miles right now. Currently on Rotella T6
Thing still runs like new. There is a little rumble coming from the clutch basket.
Best bike I've ever owned.

If your nose runs and your feet smell, you're built upside down.

~My 02 zx-6r currently has 98k which I currently use to commute on (gets about 38 mpg), use Lucas semi-syn 10w-40 from oreilly and wix filters
~Have a 15 fz-07 with about 5k miles on reserve (want to hit 100k on the zx-6r) before I start riding this bike lol. Haven't changed the oil since I bought it a couple months ago but I'll use the same Lucas semi-syn oil and wix filters due to convenience.

125,000 miles- still running great when I sold it.

I ran Amsoil Synthetic in it from 600 miles on. Never had a drivetrain problem.

I can't wait for Whodat to come back from the Iron Butt Rally and post his bike.
