    If the machine has been treated well and had regular maintenance, it can go another 30k+ without an engine rebuild.
    It's a Honda.

    on an unrelated note my xs 400 has 54k on the stock engine. Treat them nice and a Jap bike will run forever.

    I've put about 106,000 miles on my 550.
    had numerous rebuilds though, main one was at 30,000 when I did 591cc kit, cam, exhaust, porting, etc. Second gear went a bit funny around 96,000 so I fitted new selector drum, selectors and gear

    I dabble in rocket science, when I\'m not picking my nose
    The other night I gave my girlfriend an orgasm, but, she spat it back at me
