I bought this bike with 3000 miles on it. It has a little scratch on the right front plastic and on the pipe but both are barely noticable. Everything on the bike is stock. A doctor owned it, put some miles on it and then left it in storage for a few years.

Kelly Blue Book says it's worth between 3500 and 4000. However, there is no place to enter the milage on their site for motorcycles. Anyone else think this is strange? Anyway, I figured that the low milage made it a good buy. Anyone else agree?

Seems fair to me...maybe a little high, but definitely in the ball park. Any aftermarket goodies? Is the Doc the only owner? Approach it with whole if it's too good to be true theory...the bike has something wrong with it until proven right.

Have you started it or ridden it?

hmmmm

Depending on how much you paid for the bike it sounds like a good deal. First, it was owned by a doctor not not by some punk kid. So I'm thinking that baby was pampered cause a Dr. has the money for maintenance and upkeep. Also, he was probably an older gentleman who didn't ride it hard, like wheeles n' stuff. Lets see a pic!

wait a sec

you said the blue book was up to 4000. I think you could have dropped the price 500. Anyway, what's done is done. Hindsight is always 20/20. All that matters is that you're happy with your bike.

I'm presuming that the bike does run, otherwise you would have stated something about it? I'm asking because the bike sat in storage for a few years, the carbs and the gas tank may be gummed up, unless the guy drained all the gas before storage.

If you already got it, quit worrying about what you paid. If it runs, just start riding it. After all, it what it was worth to you to have a set of wheels. The experience of riding a bike in itself is priceless, IMO.
