So I went through every CL for all of CA, plus Vegas and Reno NV. Holy crap...There are not a lot of bikes that meet my criteria, ha.

Anyway, I'm less obsessed with that 923 mile bike here in town, and am in talks with half a dozen sellers that all have <6k mile bikes for me to think about. They will all require me taking a bus to go get the bike and drive home, but I may yet find a good deal, and end up with something not covered in mud and rust...or full of either one.

http://losangeles.craigslist.org/wst...589466650.html 5,600 Miles, never gotten wet, quite clean, regularly maintained with Motul full synthetic, all mods included, high quality aftermarket Konica fairings with no damage, but I want OEM, and I don't like the color scheme. Would have to deal with selling those on .net, and sourcing decent OEM ones for anything I don't have in my spares box - - - $6000

http://losangeles.craigslist.org/wst...594593267.html <5000 Miles, very clean, not rain ridden, has Yoshimura RS-5 full system, Power Commander-V, dyno-tuned to 111-BHP on pump gas, might come with an extra helmet - - -$6200

http://sfbay.craigslist.org/scz/mcy/3599790452.html 6000 Miles, exceedingly clean from what I can see, not rain ridden, adult owned, oil only changed once a year, 1 owner, well cared for, would be sold in stock trim, aside from upgraded chain and sprockets - - -$6000

http://sfbay.craigslist.org/pen/mcy/3551194194.html ~5200 Miles, has tipped over in a garage, professionally painted white mids, looks pretty clean, but still waiting to hear from seller about pricing if I have him keep the 800 dollar exhaust - - -$6800 OBO

http://fresno.craigslist.org/mcy/3546661237.html 2,200 Miles! Looks decent, has tipped over once, awaiting pics and a reply from the seller. Comes with free helmet, which I would sell. I really like the color scheme, and it's OEM bodywork - - -$6500 OBO

http://inlandempire.craigslist.org/mcy/3617251443.html ~7,000 Miles...Supposedly. He says the odo/speedo sensor is busted from a tip over. Same colors I like, but I'd have to pay to fix that issue, at unknown cost. Has some scratches, awaiting pics of damage - - -$5500

http://orangecounty.craigslist.org/mcy/3546650144.html <1000 Miles! Never dropped, barely ridden, garage stored, clean title, colors I like. Same concerns as the OP bike though...Dunno if it's gonna be troublesome from long term disuse - - -$7000 OBO

http://lasvegas.craigslist.org/mcy/3624191494.html ~13,000 Miles...Very knowledgeable owner, nice guy. Occasionally gets rained ridden. Well cared for and maintained. Has probably seen the track some. Comes with a lot of mods, namely 4000-mile young Ohlins TTXHO789 rear shock, worth $1300, but sprung for a 190lb rider. I'd have to ride it home from fuckin' Vegas - - -$6500, maybe less
