I thought I had a thread where I'd posted the same pic of my Multi when it was a couple weeks old and one year old... but I can't find it.

Yea... the third was just a chain swap while on the road. I screwed up the second chain on my trip (not paying attention and overtightened) and swapped it out in Oregon. Since I wasn't swapping sprockets I just bought the cheapest chain I could (was something like $100 installed) and figured if it got me home I'd be happy. It did that and has lasted another 3-4k miles on top - so not too terrible. I've got a new chain and sprocket set sitting in the garage but I think this chain will make it to the end of the season.

Just fitted a nice new chain and front sprocket myself DaveK, i went for another DID VX something, good quality chains, last one had covered over 50,000Ks and was still in quite good nic, but the front sprocket was showing signs of wear, and slight hooking. rear sprocket still looks like new. I see your a creature of habit, returning to the same spot each year. quite interesting actually seeing the slight changes in the scenery.

I see three different tire choices. Do you have a favorite that youd recommend for longevity?

There's a good tire thread around here... but for me, the Michelins have quite a bit more durability than the Pirelli's.

For me... the Scorpion Trail rears lasted about 3500 miles, Angel GT rears about 5000 miles and the Michelin rear lasted 8,000 miles.

On the front the ST's 6000, AGT's 7500, and the first Michelin I fitted is still mounted with about 6000 miles on it and is showing light wear (I expect over 10k).

However... IMO both Pirelli options are noticeably/substantially stickier than the Michelin's... you don't get that sort of mileage for free. I'm planning to switch back to AGT's (or maybe some other sport biased touring tire) for hooning around the neighborhood and keep the Pilot Road's for touring.

I also like the VX's... a bit more money but I usually get 15k out of them. I generally kill the chain before the sprockets, doesn't seem to matter if I lube the hell out of them or ignore them. Usually when I pull everything off at 15000 miles the sprockets still look really good... and the chain is rattling and cracking every rotation.

Still have not matched the light on that first year... which was awesome... and no I didn't forget and leave the key there... I have a tail bag that snugs under the pillion seat and I removed it for the pic (consistent).

Nothing like returning to the scene of the crime.
