    You should be able to pick up a 2nd gen T with less than 15k miles for a song now. Less than 10k if you're patient. Picked up my 09 with 3,100 last year for a song.

    My 07 just ticked over 102,000ks, has never need a valve clearance adjustment and still runs as good as new.
    I have never done more than 5,000ks without an oil change.
    I think a high mileage bike that has been well looked after is better than a low mileage bike that hasn't.
    Do not go gentle into that good night,

    Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

    This.
    I change my oil every 3000 miles. It takes 20 mins start to finish...easy.
    Given that waste friction materials from the clutch are suspended in the oil, it's not a bad plan to refresh sooner rather than later.
    A few extra oil changes is pocket change when compared to a rebuild.

    My '08 purchased new in May of 2011 will have 31K miles by the time I roll into my driveway this afternoon; looks like FZ1Joe is taking the cake here! Mine would probably have more, but it's splitting time with my 2007 V Strom 1000 with 131K on the clock.

    These rotax motors really are bullet proof! Surprised to see that many miles on these.
