I would not consider a 45,000 mile bike to be HIGH MILES if it has been properly taken care of!
Would I assume it has been properly taken care of, no fucking way!
I assume everyone is an asshole liar cheat and an idiot until proven otherwise..most of them prove to be worse than their starting point!
Further, if you want to take it (or any motorcycle) to the track I would also want to go through all systems and check it all and make damn sure it is functioning well, is very unlikely to break, and will perform as best it can.............reality says that could be a few thousand dollars or more right there to fix and service the entire bike front to back........... You are looking at a 14 year old bike!
And yes it has likley bottomed out on what the market will bear on a functioning decent looking 600cc sportbike (assumptions because we don't know what it looks like or how well it runs or the condition of any of the consumables)
But I would not expect to pay anymore than $2000 for soemthing like this unless it has high end aftermarket suspension, new tires, new(ish) chain/sprockets a brembo master cylinder and service records/receipts...........
woohoo we are having fun now
Stupid people say stupid things on the internet, so be wary of who those people are. If you solicit advice on the internet, just keep in mind 99% of what you'll receive is not based on fact or science-and likely atleast 95% of it is based on bullshit and bravado regurgitated from some other schlub who also did not experience any of what they claim and are also full of shit. If you don't like my bluntness- too bad. I am not here to please you, so move along, your approval is not desired nor is it needed. So before opening your pie hole and adding more stupidity, perhaps sit back, listen, absorb and learn something. You know that saying, it is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!
