How many people do you know That actually wear out a bike. And I mean wear it out. Not trading in a 2003 for a 2006, and the 2003 has just 50K miles. When I was a kid I put 40K on a 71 Yamaha 350 R5-B and it was not wore out when I sold it in 1974 .3 Overhauls(top end)many tires,chains,ect. But it still worked. Sold it for half what I paid for it $400.00. I see many bikes 2001(any brand)<3K whats up? Newer is not in many cases better .
