"high mileage"?????????

Just what is considered to be high mileage for a sport bike?? I know with cars the general rule is 100000. Which obviously isn't the case with sportbikes. LOL

Well according to Kelley Blue Book,

750cc's or more = 5300 miles/yr
450-749cc's = 3700 miles/yr
350-449cc's = 2000 miles/yr
under 350cc's = 1500 miles/yr

If I am looking to buy, I would say anything over 30K is quite a bit but that's my preference.

30,000?...that's a lot of mileage! You should pick up a bike with that many miles at a very, very cheap price! We put on a lot of miles out here in Cali and when you buy a bike take advantage when the bike has 5 digits!

Kelly Blue Book is right!

Some will say oh i put 10,000 miles in one year, well, there are posers out there that put like 1,000 miles a year! Makes a good flower stand....
