    on a Harley engine. I know that it depends on how the engine is taken care of and maintained, but I was just wondering.

    No reason you can't get 100K out of it with decent maintenance unless you beat on it.

    I ride over 20,000 miles a year, now days I have more then 1 bike so they are spread out some but a not to long ago before i retired i had 1 bike a 1987 FXR, rode that bike for 9 years and put 177,400 miles on it.
    It was not babied but it was well maintained, and the current owner is riding it daily but he did a full frame up rebuild on it 2 years ago.
    Harley's will last as long as you let them.
