High mileage F4

Hi. I'm a journalist doing a feature for Bike mag about high mileage exotica and I wondered if you guys knew of any F4s that would fit the bill. What do they mean by 'high mileage'? Well, I'm taking it to mean maybe 3 or 4 times the average annual mileage, so anything approaching 10,000 miles a year. I'd then want to talk to the owner about why, how etc. If anyone can help, I'd really appreciate it if you drop me a pm. And of course we'd give the forum a mention in the mag.
Cheers all,
John Westlake

Eh... I think that there was a lady on this forum who did 14000 km in a year orso...

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.

My F4 has done around 43,000 kms. around 30,000 done in the last 2-3 years if that helps.

It is 13 years old now.

Who's the Aussie bloke coming up to 100,000 kms on his brutale??

Bad case of premature posting Keiran?

They've got pills & sprays for that.

Hope you are well mate

Well...my '08 Brutale 910R has 22K miles since purchase in August 2008....should have more, but I don't get to ride as much as I want. Some of that is race track miles. So 4K a year?

I don't consider MV an "exotic"....just a well made bike with limited production.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.
