    Milestone 20,000

    When I bought my TW it had 2,305 miles on it. Today it has 22,305 miles.

    I bought it Sept. 26, 2008. It is an '87.

    Congratulations, that's quite an achievement! It's especially cool that it's an '87, and that we know a lot of those miles are cruising the trails and backroads. More miles = more smiles. Keep it up!

    That's awesome. Do you have any cool stories to share about repairs or maintenance issues you dealt with in those 20,000 miles?

    The worst thing was I had to replace an intake valve because I hadn't adjusted it correctly for a long time and the end of the valve was concave. At the same time I did the base gasket and installed new rings. So far all seems good with about 2,000 miles on the new valve.
