if car/truck motors can go over 250,000 miles then 40 for a bike is nothing

Much maintenance along the way, besides changing fluids? I have 27000 on my '12 Nomad just changing tures, rear brake pads, went k&n air filter, 1 battery, royal purple oil & k&n filter every 5000 or less, tires every 8 or 14k.. Hate the thought of changing radiator fluid & thermo, dissemble & grease swing arm & neck bearings. Not bleeding brake fluid either. Garage kept & driven daily. Whatdyathink??
