You probably need forum member richard-7 to speak up.
Last October he posted an image of his speedo with over 7,000 miles.

1963, these bikes have been in the US for less then 1 year. They are not tourers or even sport tourers they are sport bikes! One guy did do more then 5000 miles in one month but that is an exception. Also everyone I know who has a 961 has more then one bike and I don't know anyone who bought one to commute on. In the UK where they have had the bikes for three or more years there are several owners reporting in the 15000 to 30000 mile range!

My 961 is an expensive toy, or at least its supposed to be, with a Tiger 1200 XC as my daily ride, but unfortunately from the day I got the Norton, everything else in the garage took a back seat!

I can see a fair few miles going on the 961 next year..... Happy Days :D

I just passed 1000 miles on mine. Running great. Only had the first scheduled maintenance. Besides that no other service needed besides checking the tire pressure and oil once in awhile.
