Most miles/kilometres on a scrambler

These bikes have been out quite a while now. The other day I stumbled across a Youtube video (it's in Spanish, so I couldn't understand it) of a woman's trip to Nepal on a Scrambler Urban Enduro. It got me thinking about the durability of these bikes. It's an old-school engine, and I see no reason why it couldn't get to a very high mileage. Who on here has put much mileage on their Scrambler. Has anyone got to 50,000 miles/80,000 kilometres?

Hello


Oldest Scrambler have no more than 2 years now, so I think that Scrambler with 80000 km are not numerous... knowing the very low mileage average of bikes, in general. In France, for example, it's less than 5000 km per year.


My Scrambler has got now 13000 km, after 18 months.


My previous Ducati, an ST2, with a similar engine went to 120000 km with me, in 12 years. I rode 100000 km in the 5 first years and then, I stopped riding a lot for personal reasons.
This bike is still running well with lot more km with its new owner.


So, I'm not all afraid about the engine longevity of our Scramblers.

I know a guy with a Monster S2R, which has basically the same 803cc engine, who has done over 120,000 miles here in Scotland. I also know of a few older Monster and SS bikes with over 100,000 miles. If they are serviced regularly these engines last a long time.

Hello


The woman you talk about is Alicia Sornosa. She has a web and a youtube channel if you would like to follow her adventures. I don´t know if she always uses the same Scrambler or she has more than one, because I remember to see differents registration numbers in some pictures. But I´m sure she is one of the few women going around the world on a motorcycle

Good to hear about the high mileages/kms on a couple of bikes. A friend has had three air cooled Monsters and his wife has one, and they have had no mechanical problems.

I passed 4,000 kms today.

Based on my last post in this thread, I took 5 weeks to go 1,000 kms. That is a bit low for me - probably because I haven't done any long trips on the bike. Having a dog now means I have to drive!
