  8. Record mileages for the Transalp

    Hi Guys, What are the record mileages for the Transalp without any major engine overhauls on this forum? Ones that you've done or know for sure and not urban legends? I have a friend who claims he made 100,000 miles on his Transalp without even changing the clutch. Is that realistic? BTW: Hi...
