    DD750 Commuter?!

    Hi guys,

    Haven't been on here for a while. Saying hello.

    It has been almost 4 months since I bought my 2016 DD750 with 5 miles on it. I am loving every bit! It is so much fun. Couldn't ask for a more fun bike. I am currently at 3825 miles on my ODO. I bought the bike near the end of July. It is my commute bike to work. The commute is 26 miles (each way.) This means I am riding at least 52 miles a day. It kinda bums me out. Of course I did not come here to vent. I cam with questions.

    I come in search for advice on what my options are for extending the life of my bike. I would like to keep the bike around for a while. See the ODO surpass 50,000. I am doing maintenance on time. Already have an appointment for next service.

    What are your thoughts fellow DD owners?

    Appreciate any responses.

    Wrong forum section. Apologies. Unsure how I delete.

    I will just move it. Just stick to service schedule, there are multiple 750cc twin riders over 100k miles out there, a couple on this forum with early Shiver 750's.
    Diminished expectations is the key to happiness in life.

    Change oil and filter ever 3k, do the valves every 12k and change the coolant once a year - do that you are good for a long time; FYI tires as needed
