    I only have 13000 km (8100 miles) on mine but I've been averaging 1000 + km (600 + miles) per month for the past 8 months which means my @&& is getting used to it by now.

    Over 23000 miles and ran great, traded it for a BMW f700gs, missed the little TW after 2 weeks, so I bought a XT250 to keep the BMW company.

    I looked at a used one with ~22,000 miles (~35,000km) once. It was in surprisingly good shape. Not good enough to buy; but good enough to convince me to buy a new one . I was confident of the TW's reliability potential after riding it around a bit.
    Used bike allegedly was a former shore patrol bike for Naval Base Coronado, San Diego so probably had lots and lots of low rpm hours patrolling the bars and beaches.
    I forget the year but it had an unusual aluminum rack with quick disconnects that probably coupled with a box of duty related equipment

    I think member "longroof" has 60,000 miles on his TW and "spudrider" has to be getting close to that on his Zongshen TW200 clone.
