Who has the most miles ???

This is for 06 + K1200 GT...

Wondering who got the most miles out there? I have been busy... Not much time to ride...

I got just over 3000 miles locally :o Other than the stalling/idling problem thingy, everything else is perfect !!!

I'm at 11,000 km (6,835 miles).

No issues what so ever. Best bike on the planet. Actually, my riding buddies call it a starship, so it may also qualify as the best bike in space as well.

Z6s look good for another 2-3000 km.

John don't forget pictures of your seat when you get it back.

Just had my 6K service done and no issues at all. Went all syn on the oils and added a remus slip on. I also had the dealer change the rear end fluid because I'm not waiting for 12K. That's just stupid in my opinion.

Did the 6K from July 1st until Oct 1st. Longest day was 700 miles when I went from Central Mass to Roanoke Va. Bike is awsome on the highway and all that I need on the curves. Also max'ed out (so far) at 144 mph by gps on that same trip.

I have reached just over 10, 400 miles. This weekend my brake pad warning light came on so I limited the riding.

Anyone else have this problem (my brakes do not look even close to being worn)
