Used 2014

A 2014 V-Strom with 12,500 miles is for sale. They are asking $4000. I want to use for transportation to go hiking up dirt roads locally ( ~ 1 1/2 hr ).
Is this a fair price? Is this thing beat up?

Looks like a bargain. Almost too good. I found the listing on CL and it's been up for 30 days. Ad mentions California. Is it registered in CA or Oregon? If it's not too far away you should have a look.

That is probably $2,000 worth of luggage, an after-market seat, plus the original as well. Then there are the crash bars and hand guards (is it an XT?) and at 12,500 miles. It is barely run in.
I am not a fan of somebody else's used helmets and gloves but why not if they are free.

My only concern would be if it has been sitting for the last year or two as that can result in rust in the tank, or varnish in the injectors. I would want to take it for a ride - or have the owner take me for a ride as pillion.
