Re: What would you choose?
My preference would be the higher mileage bike that was ridden and maintained regularly. I have bought low mile vehicles in the past that I thought were a 'steal'.....and poured a lot of extra cash into replacing seals and things the like that had dried out and hardened from lack of use. I doubt that would be a problem with the LT, but I would still lean toward the bike that had more constant use and owner involvement. Plus, I really like my '05, prior year bikes are just fine, but I like my dash and few extra HP.....and the power centerstand is actually useful with a heavily laden bike at the end of a 700 mile day.
'05 Dark Graphite LT - now
In the past......
