how many miles is too much for a 2014?

Is 8300 miles on a 2014 F800 GSA too much? I have not seen the bike in person yet, but that seems like a lot for a 2014. I am essentially a rookie right now trying to find the right bike so I ask lots of questions.
thanks

Its a rental When did he buy it? It's a new bike, my second bike gathered dust for a year, I was in love. Why did he buy it? Maybe for a trip to Alaska and back. The only other question I would ask, was it a demo bike?

Irregardless of the mileage during a short period of time, it's barely broken in. It has the remainder of a 3 year warranty. It probably has never seen a dirt road.

I see a lot of posts coming from you, once you buy it.

Its from a dealer. Salesman said the owner got in over his head and needed to get out of his payments. The thought of it being a rental did cross my mind. Does CARFAX works for bikes as well??Hmmmm

Did buy my 1150GSA in february 2014, rode 18500 kms with it since then. your poor 8400 miles are a drop of water on a hot stone. count to that my 8GS with which I did 7000kms since beginning of this year and I live in europe not your big state where you need to ride 100kms to get a bottle of milk. Guy just likes his bike and rides it. Moreover it's still under warranty, what more do you want?

C'mon. NOBODY rides 100kms for milk. 60 miles maybe, but not 100 km.

Sounds like the owner bought it and failed to return to work. Was busy riding instead. At least it wasn't in for warranty all summer.

given the 2015's are just coming out... means it could be nearly 12 months old... 8,000 miles in 12 months... pfft... one would hope if you buy it you use it a bit more than him...

But a double quarter pounder is bigger than a Big Mac right?

Hmm

Here's the real question: If a Double Quarter Pounder is bigger than a Big Mac, is a Big Mac bigger than a Royale wit' Cheese? That's the question I need answered.

To the O.P. and just to beat the horse a bit more, I have almost 20K miles on my 2013 and it's been trouble-free and a blast to ride, if you can get a good deal on the bike in question... go for it, don't let a few miles worry you, it's still a new bike.
