How many miles on your TW? Curious on how many miles you can get from these engines. I called on a few that have 10k to 15k on them.

2008 -- 5300 miles, totally stock. Still have same tires, chaings, & sprockets.



Average 83 mpg since I bought it. I got it used, and have put 2300 miles on it.

You make me sick!
No, actually that is encouraging, I just bought my first TW (2007) this past Summer and love it, but just when it turned over 4,000 miles it started to show a small leak near the base gasket. so far it looks like just a few drops, and I expect if that's all it is I will just keep an eye on the oil level, but this is a bit discouraging. The local shop said about $300 rough guess to replace it.



I should mention it runs great, have hit 70 with a passenger... all stock.



I can forgive it if it doesn't do much worse or if I do have to get it fixed if I get anywhere near your mileage without major overhaul.



I wonder what your "final mileage" will be...

I bought my TW about a week and a half ago. The VIN plate says it's an '89 but the DMV thinks it's a '90 so I guess I'll go with that. The PO switched out the tank, seat and plastic for a more recent vintage so it looks like this:

Can we tell by the color scheme which year the new body work is from?



Anyway, it had about 2100 miles on it then and I've only put about 40 miles on it since then.

We own three 1995/1996 TW200, mileages are approximately 17k, 27k and 18k. They all leak oil and make weird noises now and then but they all run fine!

Just got my '99 "Baby Tenere" in late June with 6 K on it. I and a friend put 400 more on it over the past week and had mucho fun riding dusty dirt roads in Virginia. No, not two up! Now have a hair under 6,700 miles.



What a fun bike.....I can't wait till I have it out in a foot of snow.

I bought my '89 about a year ago with 500 miles on it. Just went over 6000 a couple weeks ago.
