the bike should last a very long time, as long as you take care of it. change oil and filter every 4000 miles, etc. keep the chain lubed every 500-700 miles, adjust every 4000 miles or so, and i have got close to 30000 miles on a chain. but chains and sprockets are pretty cheap anyway. if you want some real good, real long lasting tires, get the MICHELIN ME880 high mileage cruiser tires. they come in pretty much every size. this is what i will replace mine with, and i have used them on a few other bikes as well. they last a very long time. i think i got about 27-28000 miles out of them on my vstar i had, and that was a heavy bike. on a light commuter bike, they should last alot longer. plus, they're michelin, so you know they're good quality.
