After a Lap Of "The Big Paddock".. Nothing Broke. It was So Comfortable for All Day Riding. 600 to 900 KM days. For 5 weeks.... 1 trip was a SS1600 ( Saddle Sore 1000 mile IBR) Across the Nullarbor..
I did 1 oil change in Perth WA.. I had a new set of Pirelli Scorpion Trail II put on before I left Home.. They were still on the TEX when I got back home.. 18,778KM
When I got home, it went in for its 64K service... They went over it for everything. Valve clearance was getting close to out of spec. Head stock Bearings felt slightly Notchy ?? I couldn't feel it . So I asked to have them redone as piece of mind... Expensive ? you bet... But it was the only expensive service it ever had and ever will in future... "THE ONLY BIKE out of 5 x 1200cc Adventure Tourers that Had Nothing Go Wrong all trip"

Anyone can make it complicated..... Its pure Genius to make it Simple....
