Breaking the 12k mile mark

Well, my pops 07 Prowler has officially broke the 12,000 mile mark. And here I'm barely over 2500 miles on mine! How many miles have you all accrued on your machines?

Of course, my father did replace the motor in his at 9,000(ish) miles. He had ordered in a new crate motor from Babbitts and put it in. He just rebuilt the rear shocks this summer and is looking to rebuild the fronts as well. All other parts are pretty much original. Other wear items that are looking rough are the underhood storage bin has pretty much broke off and he's had to rig up an alternative way to mount it. His hood is getting near the end of its life as the plastic is getting some pretty decent cracks. But overall, I'm pretty impressed with how well his machine has held up.

09 Prowler 700 XTX, Dynatek FS cdi and coil kit, Maxxis Bighorns, Warn 3500 lb winch, factory windshield/wiper and roof, Trail Armor doors, cage chopped 4", BEARD rear bench seat w/ 4 point harnesses, custom built extended cage. Rockford Fosgate RFX9400 marine stereo, Scosche 6.5' 3-way speakers in custom built overhead console and MB Quart NAU260 marine amplifier. Cobra CB. Sunpro volt, oil pressure and water temp gauges. Custom gauge plate built by RD. Peel 7 Seal lined doghouse.

Damn Chrome browser on my tablet crashed so I'll try this post again. I've got 6,700 miles on my '07 Prowler but I did put in a crate motor also after the famous oil pump driven gear failure at around 3,000 miles. Body is still in good shape with a few battle scars.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE NEWBIES ...
1. Bring in a good load of firewood for the pit
2. start the morning coffee , strong but not burnt / boiled down , IMPORTANT start it early as many of us old farts get up early !!
3. sit a spell and swap some lies with the best of us

Nope no atv anymore. Had them all my life though. Started riding when I was about 4yrs old on a lil honda 3wheeler. Thinkin about buying a Can-Am Renegade or outlander. If the prowler was a lil faster I would drive it back and fourth to work. So I am also lookin at the wildcat trail. Not sure yet what I will do??? Im one of those guys that hems and haws about things for a long time then one day just decides to do it. No wife no worries!
