32k+ on my 2012 and heading out in a couple of weeks to Assen via the Chunnel for the MotoGP. Planning to avoid motorways as much as possible so should get a 1500 miles minimum on the clock.

Need to plan an NC500 too for this year.

Bike still going strong, noisy as a bucket of bolts in a tumble dryer when you start her up but she's been that way since I got her (even post recall work).

My 64 plate has 33k on it and I'm off to Spain and Portugal again in August. Fork bushes and seals just done, previously front wheel bearing disintegrated and I had to put a cheap bearing in, that collapsed and so did the free replacement. Triumph bearings going in the week after next. Some paint has peeled of the lower front engine casing and OEM foglights, and the cockpit mounting bracket and gear selector were replaced under warranty.

Still a great all-round bike that always makes me smile.  :028:

I agree - great all round bike - I thinks its holding up pretty well to the elements considering I'm not cleaning it every day !! My mates Kawasaki looks really bad after only 12 months.  My exhaust headers are in great condition - and I've never cleaned them really apart from the jet wash. Fab bike.
For info Demon Tweeks have a sale on front discs - 25% off so I've ordered a couple.  :001:
