have never failed in anything less than 50k miles and thats very early.
Having gone through the final drive failures thread on Adventure rider website seems that when it happened it looked like it was a faulty machine!
now my own little GS has only 9k miles (2 year old) on it and is well serviced, if it was a faulty one it would have showed up by now.. so I am a bit confused..
don't want to carry all the stuff if it is once in a million change that something may go wrong in which case I might as well stay at home with my slippers and pipe..
on the other hand it is like "waiting to happen" I want to be prepared..
any thoughts on the above??
(as I said my trip will be tarmac only - hopefully!! 4,000 miles 20 days)
