Default Motor-bike durability??

Hi everyone, my first post. I could not stand the curiousity any longer so I bought a BGF kit on E-bay. So far it is a gas to ride, have ridden it more often this fall than my old Electra-Glide. My question is how far have you guys ridden these things? I'm only at about three hundred miles. I was quite surprised to find a website for these little devils. Too Cool!

Yea - Venice has a point, there's a large amount of "randomness" when it comes to the quality of these lil motors, but having said that I've roughly 10,000 miles so far between two different builds & both of those are the lil Chinese two stroke kits... So odds are if it's not a "dud" and ya treat it right, you'll get plenty more out of 'em than ya put into 'em lol

Welcome to the place BTW

I almost wish I had put an odometer of some type on both of my bikes so I can keep track of my mileage, for this reason.
