What is the most mile you ever saw on a KLR

My 08 has about 4500 miles on it and I was just thinking how I would like to have it forever...
What is the most mileage you ever saw on a KLR? I am hoping for atleast 60 or 70k.
What do you think?

The chief mechanic at Grayboy Kawasaki has reportedly got that much (60K + miles) on his. He's on his second KLR....

So I was curious about your travels with that kind of mileage and checked out your website but none of the links work.

My Kaw Barn - 2004 KLR, 2006 Concours (sold), 1997 Bayou 400.
