I got mine 2 years ago and have ridden 4 big longhaul tours, clocked up 15,000kms, including UK local stuff. Love it!
A few small knocks and dings and some of the stupid stickers peeling off (hoorah). It looks more like a true workhorse now.
My main concern with your bike is the vulnerability of the gear (and maybe brake) levers stuck out on the front scaffolding. A tumble or a careless transport baggage handler (plane, bus, boat, train,etc) could wreck a tour. I don't imaging that they would be easily replaceable in more remote destinations.
