    Though it should be good for the odd wheelie.
    Trying to think of a wise and sincere signature quote, but the only words that leap to mind are, "TITTY SPRINKLES"

    I had a Z1000 back in Victoria that I got up to 105,000km. And it still ran perfectly. The only reason I don't have it anymore is because I dropped it a couple of times before moving here. I then left it too long, the rego expired, and it wouldn't pass a road-worthy anymore (bent handlebars....). So yeah, they're pretty bullet proof if you treat them well.

    My 2011 Honda CBR600RR is about hit 121k kms. I got it at 100k.
    At 104k it had a perished/cracked HISS ignition wire cause some funky behaviour.
    Very worn grips, sticky head bearing, regulator possibly on the way out (sometimes won't start when hot and resets the dash clock - can push start fine) but motor is solid, no issues with it and last time it had a major at 112k nothing needed adjusting.
