Is 2005 1200GS (55k miles) worth $9.9K

Hi.

I'm looking at getting a used 1200 GS. I found a 2005 with 55k miles for $9900. It has Jesse bags and looks well cared for (garaged, etc.).

Is this a good deal? The miles seem high. It's being sold by second owner -- they don't know if the recalls (3 in 2005) have been performed.

10k is pretty much my price point, but I could be talked into a little more. Is there any reason to get a later year with less miles for a bit more (like 11-12k)

Thanks!
Matt

I just sold an '09 without bags and 34k miles for $11k. That price is stupid high. A friend just bought an '07 without bags with 42k for $9k.

Realize the 05 was the first year of the 1200 series. It had the stupid-ass servo brakes, and also had each and every problem that the 1200s series is known for. I wouldn't buy one. But if I had to, I wouldn't go mre than $7K for an 05 with 55K miles. Look around on this site. You can find an 08/09 with low miles for $10K-ish. Much better deal. Much better bike.

Also depends on where you live.
Bikes go for drastically different prices around the country.

CA seems to always be at least 1k if not 1.5k higher for a GS/GSA.

This is absolutely the wrong place to ask that question. IMO, ask what to look for as far as things that go bad, check for some comparable prices, then ask yourself if that is the bike you want. Seen this type of thread on all kinds of forums, if it is your bike you think you are giving it away. If it is someone else is selling it, they want want way too much.
