Question on milage

#1 Unread post by NorthernPete » Sat May 18, 2019 4:06 pm

Hey gang, quick question about milage. With my virago being a non runner I’m still kind of looking at the market. I found a 2004 Honda VTX 1300 for 2400 in the area but it’s sitting at 89000 kms. With that sort of milage should I keep looking? I know Honda’s have a good reputation, owner has done oil changes every year, tune up 2 years ago and a new tire and battery. He’s the 2nd owner (purchased 5 years ago)

Opinions?

Also have a line on a 1988 Vulcan 1500 with just over 26k Kms on it. Just shy of 2 grand for that and is running. Do I go lower milage on an older bike or newer with higher?
