That was a trip !!
« on: August 31, 2019, 01:24:55 PM »
Just got home from a cruise and the odometer read 40,080 Km

THAT IS A TRIP AROUND THE WORLD   8)

Tomorrow I'll change the oil, spark plug and give Wolfie a good inspection ..... get him ready for another world tour.

A living legend. How many K's do you think a Wolf could go before it needs a rebuild?

I don't know ..... it seems the longer it runs the better it runs  ;)
Not sure how long a timing chain lasts.
I'm not on Facebook so I can't communicate with the members there, maybe someone there has worn a Wolf out.
I am very pleased with the reliability and "fun factor" of The Wolf.

Me too Papa Bear.
My Wolf has exceeded my expectations for sure!
The BMW has hardly moved all summer, and I just sold the MZ. I liked riding the Wolf more and decided I probably only needed one small motorcycle.

Rolled over 44,000 Km today. Wolf is purring like a kitten.
The only thing I've changed since buying Wolfie, other than oil & spark plugs, is:
1 set of tires at ~ 25,000 KM - tires are Duro HF319 and are great, still lots of tread on them
1 set of brakes, didn't really need them but I had the wheels off for tires anyway. I saved the old brakes ....
1 headlight bulb.

Still running the original chain, original cables.  I have no complaints with this bike - it is a blast !!  8)

Glad you have had such a great experience with your Wolf.
I noticed Iím up to 12k miles now. I have a way to go to catch up to you, but I love riding my Wolf. Tires, brakes, headlight bulb for me too. Otherwise no problems.

 Holy cow.  Do you ever get off that thing?  About 600 miles/wk is a good long ride in my book.  I think my butt would be sore.  Keep it shiny side up.
 I'm about 5 years behind, don't know if I'll catch up.

 Vertical and above ground!!

It's not how hard you work, it's how much you get done.  Vertical and above ground, daily.
