The problem is trying to sell a bike with higher miles, most buyers look at 2 thing appearance and miles (they know little else). where I live, its hard not to do 100 miles a day, and I live in the middle of a big city.... this guy was expecting bikes to have less then 10K miles, and thats just something I rarely see.

In all my years riding, I've never see a bike with 10k on it after about 2 years old. My oldest riding friend who is now 73 doesn't do many miles now, but his BMW R1150GS has a huge mileage on it and it looks like new, he bought it new. in 2000.
Don't know why but I feel very sad when people talk about having low mileages, makes me think how long has it spend not being ridden, either to not wanting to or its been a bit of a dog.
