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. 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 <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 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 ~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 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 ~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 <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 ~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
