Just bought my 1992 GL1500, it has 76,000mi on it and i've heard that if taken care of I can expect to get 250,000 or more miles out of her. I hope this is true, I plan on riding it a lot.

Welcome HDEater, up to 114k on my wing and she is running strong. Take care of your Wing and she can run a long time.

Highest I have seen was 146,000....definitely not the way bikes were a long time ago (only getting 35-40k). Enjoy the ride, should do well for ya as long as it was taken care of. And if not, this group knows a lot, can help. I am always looking in the "how to" section.
