24,000 miles too much? (Miles, not kilometers)
« on: February 01, 2019, 11:56:54 PM »
I'm looking at buying a 2012 XC with 23,000 miles. Assuming regular services and about 15% time off road, should I consider that high mileage, or not worry about it?

It's barely broken in.  With a regular service record it is good to go.   :028: 

BTW:  My 11 XC just turned 30,000 miles - and I consider it a low milage bike ...

There is a thread on here for highest mileage, if you have cencerns for 23K you will be shocked at some of the results!   Mine is a 2013 with 56K miles, a mix of long distance all day and local ' popping to the shops'  . With a service history and clean presentation it sounds like this has been just a recreational bike for its past (1?) Owner.

23k in 7 years = sunny Sunday rider. Cyclists do more than that.

The PO is likely selling 'cos it's coming up 24k service, at a main dealer that is big 's.

My 2012 Rodie (bought & owned from new) has covered 31,000 miles and whilst I won't be selling it if I did I would consider the buyer to be an extremely lucky person.

Most motorcycle owners pamper their bikes and most have them regularly serviced and are well looked after, so if it's got good history and is well presented that mileage won't be a problem.

If you keep it for 2 - 4 years and add lets say another 16,000 miles the depreciation will probably be less than 400 per year and you'll still have a bike with less than 40,000 miles on it.

Go buy it  :028: :028: :028:

My 2012 Roadie is having its 24,000 mile service done, by David Muddy Sump on 14 Feb. She's my true Valentine you see. I had a bloke come up to admire it at a garage about a month or two ago and he wouldn't believe its age.  He thought it was just a couple of years old. The key thing for any bike is to make sure that it has been properly serviced and looked after.

My three year old (April 16) XRX is coming up for 20,000 miles and I only ride it a few times a month.
