Questions about potential bike purchase
I was contacted by a seller on another site who said he has a '07 w/ ABS, with about 52,000 miles on it. He said it was meticulously taken care of, and just had the valves looked at 4,000 miles ago. New brakes, battery, and tires in 2011 and not much miles since then. No damage to bike. Most of the miles happened up to 2011, and then the bike only got ridden 2-3 times each year since around the county he lives in. Said he does the filter/fluids every spring, even if he only rode it 70 miles the year before.
It's priced a little under 3 grand, very lightly farkled, no luggage. I think the price is very good, and I'd be adding quite a few miles with some very long distance road trips planned in the next three years.
Does this amount of high miles scare anybody away from this type of purchase?
Should anything be automatically replaced in prep for a long upcoming trip? It's on original bulbs, battery has very little use but four years old, etc.
Does the stock suspension on the Stroms wear out about now and should be replaced/upgraded?
Any words of wisdom? Yes..I know nothing about motorcycles...at all...other than riding...but am trying to learn.
Lighten up, Francis. If you can't take some sarcasm, an Internet forum is the last place you should be.
