Thank Bdesj! Too Kind. As I've been out in the mountains searching for photo opportunities I am dreaming of riding. There is actually a hi mileage, 80k, 2011 AbS with a $3k asking price. Reports good care (of course), stator replaced at 30k, left fork seal weaping. In my mind, there are a fair number of bikes with 8-20K miles on them for that price. How low an offer is acceptable to throw out there without being a disrespectful tool? Seams, compared to others with much lower milage, it might be worth half that?

Hope you had a good wander, JPT. Check for a PM I sent in the interim if you have not seen it yet, notifications from Stromtrooper are not particularly reliable. As far as the bike you mention, it seems kind of high priced for that many miles to me, though I`m not very up on pricing (also a decidedly bad buyer/seller of stuff). The fork seal is not a big deal if you are willing to tackle the job yourself.
