82 gl1100a odometer

Just trying to confirm actual mileage on my Goldwing. Does the odometer return to zero after 100000km? I bought it with 27,000km indicated, but as it is an 82, I suspect 127000 may be closer to the actual number. Any body know for sure?

You are correct. It returns to zero after 100,000 (km or miles, depending on your market version).

It's possible to have only that many miles on it. It's not unheard of and one way to try to figure it out would be to do a compression test and see where you are at. Welcome aboard.
Thanks to all who answer and help. It is greatly appreciated!

I guess it's only 76,000 MILES, not so bad for 33 year old bike
