never in all my years of riding Harley did I worry about adding up miles, in my little time of riding bmw I didn't worry about adding up miles
now that I am considering selling my lt and realize just how low of a resale value the LT carries with "normal" miles, I wish I had traded it in a couple years ago since it has 128 on it now.
The harley was just as bad with miles on it, my '01 was just over a year old when it FINALLY sold with 37k miles on it, I started advertising it around 30k miles , no one would call except those saying, I'd like to see your glide for sale, and I see there is a typo on the miles on it, that should have read 3000 miles not 30,000 miles, for the record I had that bike listed at 3k under book as well it finally sold for 12k with quite a few extra's and nice powder coating
I would say something nice like "unless someone stole one of the zero's off the odometer those miles are correct" then go on to inform them "it is a TOURING BIKE!"
When the wife decided to finally sell her '96 Bad boy a couple years ago, it had 72k miles on it the few calls we got for the bike which was listed at 12k 3k under book at the time folks called again and asking the mileage was correct ya know 7200 miles not 72k miles, the damn bike was darn near 8 years old!!!, one fellow got a tad nasty on the phone , I told him I wouldn't sell his poser ass that bike if he were the last person on earth.
but never have I worried about it, it's not a investment it is transportation and a way of life around this family
as I hate to see the cold weather move in on us here!
