How many miles on your R1100S/R1200S?

How many miles have ya got on that R1100S or that R1200S parked in the garage? Any high mileage rides out there? And what have you had to do to keep it on the tarmac? My 2000 R1100S has a bit over 37,000 without any major repairs. What about yours?

2002 Boxer Cup Prep.....54,000 miles no problems. Have checked the splines twice and had zero wear. Had to weld the frame tabs back on in New Mexico, when a storm blew it over fully loaded on a trip, while parked on the side of the road. I love this bike more than all the many many motorcycles I have owned. I have never kept a bike for 15 years.... usually one or two years then upgrade. My R1200GS has 45,000 and gets ridden more often, but washed, and loved less.

Just turned 69k on a 2001 R1100S (only a few thousand of that is mine, though). I've only done the oil so far, valves are next.

'04 BCP with a mere 15,000 miles, of which 8,500 are mine in the last 3 years. Have had to replace the spark plug coilovers and rebuild the starter, due to it eating its own grease shield. Other than that it has run like a top.
Previously had a '99 1100S that I took from 60 to 66K in the 18 months I had it. Needed a fuel pump to get it running when first acquired but no major work. It had spent a lot of time outside so had more oxididation than its age might warrant, especially of the sheathing on the wiring. Would have kept it but thought mistakenly I'd get better gas mileage out of the dual spark '04. All I really got was a more complicated ABS to bleed. A nearly new bike at 6.5K in that tarty two-tone was hard to pass up though.

I've put 3000+ miles on my '03 Boxer Cup Replika in 10 months. The previous owner put 1200 miles on in 8 years! It's got a total of 13,300 miles on it now. It was and is a pristine example of a "Randy".

2006 R12S with 25,000 mi (40,000km). Only problem (other than standard recalls ... fuel pump, rear wheel flange) is a perished front driveshaft rubber gaiter replaced and now the rear one is showing signs of perishing.

2000 R1100S 108,000 miles. Kind of stopped putting miles on it in 2012. I still love the way it looks. The Halls sensor replaced, throttle bodies rebuild twice and two clutch replacements. Trans input shaft splines are okay. The final drive pivot bearings have been replaced every 25,000 miles.

I think my 12S has 50,000km's on it. 6 Motorcycles to ride and 7 bicycles that take up most of my time limit the time spent on the 12S.

Cheers

72 K miles on my '99. Only needed the Razorback Magic on the splines. But she's been a garage queen for the past 4 seasons.

My wife and myself each have 1999 1100S models with 193,xxx plus miles on each bike . Obviously we ride a lot together . As far as failures, the usual items such as hall sensors a few input transmission shafts , throttle body shaft, new drive lines in both bikes at around 190,000 mi. I have replaced the fuel pumps as preventive maintenance . Her bike has ABS and have had no problems with it , but I flush the brake and clutch fluid every year . I had the large bearing start to go bad in my rear drive and replaced it but her's is still original. Just change fluids and take care of them.
