Hi all! What would you say to a 1999 Honda VTR250 with 87 000km on it (9 months rego)? He wants $3000 for it and doesn't seem willing to budge on that (he bought it for $4000). It's been well maintained (service records for the last 5 years) and feels nice to ride (a friend who's been riding since she was 16 agreed). But ultimately I have very little to compare to, and the kilometres are scaring me off a bit. For background: I am female (= short legs) and have been riding for about 2.5 years now on a 1990 Honda CD250U with about 14 000km on it. It's been a good bike but I want some thing that handles highway speeds better, and a friend lowsided on it while I was overseas (but that's another story!). Seems like now as as good a time as any to get something with a little more oomph rather than pour money into an old bike. I don't particularly want anything bigger than a 250. The answer I've found on Google seems to be "it depends" (some saying they had 400 000km on their Goldwing, some saying they would consider a bike trashed at 15 000km!), so thought I'd ask with some specifics! Thanks for your thoughts!
