What do you think of this R1?

Thinking about getting this little guy. Looking at it tomorrow. I think I can talk him down on pric some more judging by the phone convo. The only thing that concerns me is the mileage. What do you guys think? http://treasure.craigslist.org/mcy/3445775176.html

That's a pretty good deal actually dude!!! 10.5k miles is nothing on a bike... My Honda has 30k miles currently and still running as strong... Just saying

Go for it. As long as you keep up on the bike, 10K is nothing. Good luck and let us know if you pick it up.

Too late, I just called him and bought it....

Just kidding. Nice bike! I have a 2010 Rossi, but I'd take that black over my color scheme anyday!

Good luck

Got it for 6k! Beautiful bike. Only thing I don't like is that it was lowered a bit, but I can change that.
