I got it with 250,000 miles on it when it was only 7 years old. My estimate is I've put 100k on it, and about half those miles with $1/gallon fuel. I bulk purchase fuel when prices are low, 500 gallons at a time. Usually that's somewhere around $2.20/gal. $1,100 every few years isn't too bad, and I rarely drive it anymore. Back when I was young, it was fun to load the quad into the bed and head to the woods with the girlfriend.
