That bike now has 431,000 miles on it. The new owner completed his month-long tour without issue and is extremely happy with his 'new' ride. When he bought the bike it had a Chicken, Alaska sticker on the trunk and i jokingly told him he had one year to get to Chicken or I was going to remove the sticker, so he and I may be heading to Alaska this summer!
For the record, there was nothing wrong with the original engine when I replaced it at 250k miles, but it was jumping out of second gear due a bent shift fork and it was easier and cheaper to replace the whole lump. The second engine/trans is running fine. I had planned to replace it at 500k just for piece of mind and had already bought a third lump, the new owner has it now and it will be up to him if/when he installs it.
It was and still is a wonderful motorcycle, I miss the big v-twin rumble and creature comforts but I am very happy with my 400 lb lighter Tracer GT.
