I look for the 'high mileage' bikes.... and get them 'for cheaper' because it scares away other buyers. To me, it means that the machine has been maintained well enough to make it this far and will most likely make it further without major make over work.... But I do all my own work too.

I have a Aprilia RST1000 with 76000 miles that runs like a clock... its just everything else, like the loose rear wheel (fixed) and the failed clutch master (fixing), that make is a PITA.
