    Shadowfax: 75,000 miles old (milestone)

    It's shameless to post this really but Shadowfax has broken his 75,000 miles barrier this week, bless him.

    We celebrate next week with a 16,000 mile service; the only service I won't do myself now. He's going to have his thermostat pulled, SMC serviced, and rounded-out front caliper bolts and pins exchanged. And then a pair of stout PR2s is due shortly after with another dose of Puncturesafe.

    He's an expensive old nag but I love him.

    It's my Wife's birthday soon, too. The budget's gonna be tight this year, I think.

    Congrats on the miles Pat! These "milestones" are often taken too lightly! (My wife always tells me that I take them too seriously

    My bike turned over 78,000 yesterday while I was on the RTE to Kernville!

    I missed seeing the 77,777 by 2 miles!

    Thanks, Bob. It's reassuring I'm not the only one. (Whew!) I hate missing them. I caught the 66,666 - just - and would loathe to miss all the 7's. I feel your anquish but just imagine missing ALL the 9's!!

    Pat,

    Nice!

    How many have you put on Shadowfax yourself?

    Mark

    If you love your bike, let it go.
    If it comes back, you high sided.....

    Yes, I too got the 66,666 on camera...but missing the 77,777, it was all I could do to contain myself!

    I'm lagging behind a bit here.... my '04 hasn't even made 25,000 yet!

    Congrats to you both.

    30,000+ miles odd between us, I think, Mark since Aug '08 with 3-months we barely rode while redundant last March to July.

    We should achieve 50K between us by New Year if I don't do the sensible thing and find a job closer to home (unlikley in my 'industry' or this climate).

    Commuting's become my hobby. Neat.

    Just because you're not the only one with this "affliction" doesn't mean your not crazy, Dan. (I mean, you not only stopped near a bloody great buffallo but dismounted, too! My suggestion below: )


    Buffallo HERE............................seen it, here ...(Broom)..........Shadowfax and I that-a-way _____
