    2007 w/ 71k miles good deal for buy?

    I came across a 2007 Speed Triple for sale for $2500. From the pictures it looks like it has aftermarket handle bars, new tires, and an arrow exhaust; doesn't look like any cosmetic damage. The catch is that it has 71k miles. I haven't contacted the owner but what are some questions or things I should be looking for on the bike?? I'm wondering if this is too high of mileage for it to be worth purchasing, or if I could talk him down even more on the price and get a really good deal.
    Thank You!

    Judging from what I've heard from other members, these motors can go past 100k. If you got a good feeling from the seller, I would think a good plan would be to try and talk him down to 2 grand, possibly even lower. Many buyers are turned off by high mileage; as a result, I would think bargaining would be in your favor. One nice thing about a 07 with that many miles is that the charging system more than likely would have been upgraded by that point. Also, generally speaking, most machines that make it that long have been fairly well cared for and have often racked up those kind of miles commuting.
