Hi there, I live on the NSW Central coast. Only be riding on the road a couple of years but have done quite a few K's in that time as I have about a 90km round trip to work. I had a Hyo GT650s that I brought brand new in 07. Put 35,000 k's on it. Didn't have too many dramas with it, but had a lot of dramas with the Hyo dealer up here but thats another story. Just got a Caspean blue Triumph sprint ST a couple of weeks ago. 07 model that only had 5000k's on it. What a bike!! Absolutly love it! A major upgrade from the hyo.
