Lucky 7's
« on: March 19, 2016, 09:37:20 AM »
Just rolled over 77,777.7 miles on my 95 750 the other day.  What a great bike this has been  Thought I would do a short report and salute my NH for all the trouble free miles it has given me.  Other than routine maintenance, had to replace the valve cover gasket , which I did myself for cheap $$.  Here's the lucky shot.

It is appropriate for my report to cover my local roads as 90% of my riding occurs on the little traveled 2 lane back roads.  Nothing more relaxing for me than a few hours rolling through the country.
 
Lots of curves like this for the 750 to whip through giving me a thrill.

Spring has sprung in NE Texas.  Green pastures abound.

Spring here means an abundance of rain.  Too much of a good thing = major flooding.  This is the Sulphur River bottoms, which is covered in massive amounts of water.  Major flooding along the Sulphur and Red River, which the Sulphur runs into in Arkansas.

At the conclusion of the ride, had my wife snap a pic of a man happy with his motorcycle.  Like most of us, I consider buying a more modern bike, but I am quite pleased with the NH. 

 

I plan to ride this NH until it can go no more.  Hopefully that will be far in the future.  Happy riding!

Take care of your machines and they'll take care of you.  Congratulations on the milestone!

I'm hoping you get to take the same picture again.  ridn2

That sounds like my plan, too!

 Congratulations, that is awesome. Previous "record high" for me was a friend with 66000 on an old Triumph.

 Your bike sure looks great for that mileage, makes me more confident I picked the right bike to get riding again.

 I also ride mostly 2 lane roads here in SC...lots of them to explore.

Great post...thanks

You definitely picked the right bike NH.  Your NH is very low mileage right.  Years of enjoyment ahead of you.  NH750s just keep on rolling when maintained well.

 Yes, unbelievably it had only 3800 miles when I got it in December...around 5800 now.

Oil has been changed, chain lubed, tire pressures checked etc.... still have to pick up an air filter, but

other than that it's crank her up and go. Perfect bike for this stage of my life....joy riding.

3800!  With 5800 now it is only 94,200 away from the 100,000 mile service.  Oil change, air filter change, valve check(nope-no need with hydraulic valves).  Think we should go for a ride now.

77k is an impressive number! Prior to being interested in NH I was interested in Harley's 883 and heard nothing but bad thing about their hydraulic valves. Sure puts things in perspective.

It will if you stick with the NH and do routine maintenance.
