WHOAAAA ... that's impressive LP !
It should be the first CT with 100.000km  :047:

And I thought I changed my Varadero with lots of km ... and I had only 108.000km !! And you did 265.000km !!

Mr. Honda will be happy about it ...  :305: :305:
It doesn’t matter the fast you go, but the far you arrive ...

LP, maybe you should explain how you fixed the topcase. Many here are struggeling with water infiltration in their TC.

I have said on a previous post that I rubbed silicon grease into the zip from both sides. It has so far proved to be 100% waterproof.

Hi LP,

Have you had any issues with the engine making knocking noises throughout ur 100k? I seem to have this weird knocking sound but goes away after warming up.

respect to you

 i had a ST1100 that i had from nearly new and i did 92,000 Miles on it without even a bulb blowing and it used no oil , just a few wheel bearings and one set of head-stock bearings and it only needed 4 shims changing in 92k , did 48k on my Africa without a glitch , i also did 50k on a early triumph Daytona without a problem , until a Pissed up french driver rear ended me at some traffic lights and totaled it
