She is finally broke in!

It happened on the way to work this morning. Was lucky enough to be able to pull over safely when this happened to get the picture. Am now a member of the 100000 club-is there such a thing? But I suppose this now reduces the value of the bike for resale, as if I was considering that, anyway. That's ok, it'll be around for a long time.

I am going to say 'no' to lessened value and here is why: When mine got totaled they contacted me with a dollar amount that was fair. He then confirmed details and when I told him it had 128,000 miles he went ooh- wait. The new number offered was WAY lower and unacceptable to me. I asked to speak to a manager/adjuster. Easy since it is common. I explained about GW's not being normal motorcycles and 100k plus was common, and I emailed him links to bikes with comparable mileage as mine for around their original offer. He agreed with me almost instantly and I got the fair payout price.

As for the club, kind of! I did a web search for stickers and put one on mine showing the 100,000 odometer turning to 100,001. They are common for diesel Volvos and Mercedes. I liked having it on there and it started more than one nice conversation.
