I've yet to purchase a motorcycle and have been spinning around in circles for the last few months trying to decide what exactly I want to buy. Now, I've seen and sat on 4 brand new motorcycles thus far starting with; Triumph Tiger 800XC, BMW R1200GS/GSA, KTM 990 ADVENTURE, lastly Yamaha XT1200Z Tenere. All very beautiful machines in their own right, and each highly specialized in their own unique purpose. After seeing all of this brand new machinery and thinking of price, and getting it outfitted with gear, and buying new gear so on and so forth I took a step back and thought again of buying used. Now, after looking through Kijiji and sifting through every single 2nd hand GS out there, I started thinking about the Idea of buying used. However, there is a BUT! the but is, most of these machines have 65,000 KM'S and are going for around $10,000 used. Now, me as kind of a newbie/outsider to the world of GS and ADV machines am thinking to myself, "Isn't that a bit too much for a bike with 65,000 clicks on the clock?" what is it going to cost me to get the machine all tidy before my long journey? What am I going to pay for fixing all of the necessary items before actually being able to ride the machine XC. ETC......... So, again I come to you and ask you in your honest opinion what do you think is better?
