55k+ Miles
« on: January 09, 2013, 02:44:07 PM »
January 2013
We still have both 2009 HD125's and running great
I have 55,471 miles with no problems
(except waiting on a small o ring in the cooling
system; minor)


Left brake lever end separated when the scooter slid off the side stand.
Should have a new one coming in some time this year.
Don't laugh, its not easy getting parts over here!
(east coast)

Yea, the left lever used to be for drum, but now they are all for disc brakes.
Those look like Pirelli's - you like?

Yep, I have those on my HD 200...ever since my son took over that bike I have had to replace the rear tire every 4,000 mi...gotta talk to him about his riding style....
I have Michelin City grips on my Citycom 300i - they wear longer but not as grippy

LOL...you know that little plate cover that goes over the left
handle bar to access the reservoir for the brake?
Mr Skootz had that fly off today...we went back and tried to find it,
but the cagers were extra obnoxious today.

Mr Skootz says there are probably better tires out there, but cost vs
ride and durability on the Pirelli's its about right.

It was almost 72 degree today and we actually saw a trio of scooter riders...
(not common in the rurals here; I got a few photos and will post them in
a shortly)

We stopped for break and saw these (3) guys
ride by. They pulled over to check GPS or something,
and I was able to grab a few candid shots.


The 3rd guy had already pulled out and was off and running

I have a Michelin City on the back of my Citycom with the front stock Maxxis and the grip is comparable even in the wet, which means the Michelin's are decent but nothing fantastic.

However after 6000 km (3600 mi) I can't detect any wear.
