    Way to go Don, just shows that how long a XR will last when it is well taken care of.
    Don't know how you avoided the tickets though. There seems to be a lot of police out lately.

    Congratulations but how many times have you been stopped? I’m approaching 50k miles with no tickets but I’ve been stopped a few times, mostly with MaddogXR. Oh and I won’t mention that one accident I had. 🙂
    Keep up the safe riding!

    Illegal here, quiet pipes and you are not noticed.

    It is mutual, I faithfully get maintenance done and she has been faithful to me.

    Ah but I don't get to fly between bike trips, that has to count some.

    Never been stopped on this bike, did have a cop on Trans Canada hwy do the bike slow down hand signal over his dashboard to me last year. After meeting the California bunch in Colorado, I am not surprised you get stopped a bit. Seem to remember you guys got a spanking riding up Pikes Peak to fast and another curious event that I won't mention. As long as we are all having fun it is all good.

    I put a Thinkware M1 motorcycle dashcam on bike a few weeks ago. Nice to have footage available when something happens, or just to review a great ride during the winter freeze. Set up to record all the time bike is running or ignition is in Accessory with engine and lights off (if ever I do get stopped by police I can shut engine down and have it record video and audio in stealth). It also shows charging voltage and speed if you opt for it in black bar on bottom left of videos.
