Even if you hate the bike, that one's worth buying just so you can make a few bucks.
Like the others said, if the odometer hasn't already gone around once before, 16,000 miles is like barely broken in. And if it's on it's second trip around, it's still a good deal if you have maintenance records available, in fact, maybe even better because the one big gotcha of that particular year is soft valve seats. If it's still running past 50,000 miles, it means the problem has been addressed.
I don't know if there was a recall to fix those, or if people dealt with them under warrantee, might want to find out about it.
