Just bought a very clean low mileage 2007 (650).
Second 650 TA I have owned.. The first a 2005 came to a sticky end in 2008 but that is another story.
Since 2008 I have worn out a few bikes travelling 250 000km around Southern Africa
Come full circle back to a TA.
Pic is from my shake down ride this morning.

Greetings StuartC and welcome to the forum. Have fun with the inmates and enjoy the ride.
[edit]Crikey, 250,000km in 9 years, I thought I'd done well to cover about 180,000km on bikes in that time. That's a big effort.[edit]

Worn out a V-Strom 650 and a DR650 and put a dent in a GS800 doing it.
It's actually 11 years, started filling in the map in 2006 with a Transalp but that got written off in 2008.
Courtesy of a drunk car driver who jumped a stop street.

Even since 2006 I'd still only be able to claim 220,000km at best I'd reckon.
