I'm almost @ 90K on my 03 & was wondering if anyone out there has over 100k on their ACE.

It is not unusual to see them with over 100,000 miles in states with year round riding.
On another forum I sometimes visit, a guy has just past 152,000 miles on his '98 750 ACE with just regular maintenance.
My insurance agent told me that the average Canadian rider puts about 3,000 to 4,000 km on his bike annually, so in Canada it could last forever. (-;
The thing that seems to have them end up as recycling are accidents and it does not take a whole lot of damage for Insurance Companies to write them off.
Similarly stressed Honda car engines just keep going and going, and I see no reason a 750 ACE won't be capable of the same.
