:D I would take it you are not the gas and go type. What kind of routine or periodic maintainence is done and have these been trouble free miles beside the normal brake, tire, etc.
This is what I do
Local and need repair help with your 1500, Valkyrie or ST please PM

This 96SE I have has been a rock. Normal maintainence for oil, fluids, filters and such. Replaced timing belts at 80,000 and 160,000. I did also replace the alternator with a Surefire and replaced the water pump once. Also replaced about 85% of my lights with LEDs. Longest trip we took was a 24 day 6600 mile run from GA to CA and back, pulling the Bunkhouse camper. Looking to do more camping this year now that we are in PA. I really think if I had to get another bike...it would be without a doubt another Goldwing!

I have a 94SE, with 90,060 miles on her. I ride it to work every day a whole 2 1/2 miles. I think I need to find a job farther from home.

Ride Safe,
Rich

My daily commute was for quite a while at least 30 miles one way...I now work from home so my commute is about 20ft..from bedroom to "office".

Had my new 2 me 93 out for a ride yesterday. A balmy 44 deg. Did about 85 miles. The more I ride it (my 2nd ride on this one), the more I like it. It had 32,xxx when I got home. Hope to do 15,xxx this year. I will be doing my normal 30 m 1 way commute asap. Aren't we Wingers blessed?

I have found out that my odometer on my bike must be wrong. I drive 35 miles to work and for some reason on many days the odometer says I traveled 60-80 on the way home. Haven't figured out why yet, hoping to never find out. Have 29 K on my 95 Aspendcade that I bought last March, Only put about 10K on last year hoping to do 15-20 this year.

I have right at 95,000 on my '06. Do the regularly scheduled maintenance and have never had a problem. For 5 years before I retired I rode it 35 miles one way to work daily if it was not raining. I already have my trip for this summer planned out. I will put a bunch more miles on it then. Maybe by the time I get back it will be broken in.
