So I had a quick scan thru that extensive list and all of it seems to be normal maintenance. Unless I missed something there is nothing exceptional on the list and that is the good bit. I am assuming You are talking miles as opposed to kilometers ?

Anything exceptional during the final 25000 ?

Some of it doesnt make sense to me. You replaced the rear tire at 7000 and 8000? And you replaced the rear brakes pads and chain at 3500? And the front tire at 10,700 and 12,900?

Looks like you've rolled up good mileage.
