Looking at so many bikes they are only at like 10k or whatever so whats considered high mileage for a bike?
I guess I wasn't clear in my post--30k seems to be on the higher end of what I see on a regular basis and that's why I added:I wouldnt say that 30k is high mileage. I sold my 94cbr900 several years ago with 80k on it and it ran like a top. Mileage really depends on make, model and maintenance. I wouldnt shy away from a bike with higher k until ive checked it out.
FWIW, my current ride has 187,000km on it, so I know that a bike isn't worn out at 30k.but not high in terms of how long the bike will run if given proper care
I've got a sport rider magazine from apr 99. There's a story about a guy who bought a cbr900 brand new in 93. At the time of the article the bike was six yrs old and had 322000 orig k on it and I mean all original. The motor had never been rebuilt and the owner only did routine maintenance.
Ah. Yamaha owners. So optomistic. In eight months, will it have 47,000 Kms on it?dr_kno said:If its any consolation, I picked up my first bike, a 2003 R6 with only 1800KM's on it, exactly a month and a half ago, as of today. The odo also turned over to 7000KM's today. Thats roughly 5000KM a month (as I couldn't ride much the first week). I maintain the bike well, and don't generally beat the shit out of it (I think I've seen redline once) and I expect to get what I paid for it when I sell it next summer.
