New (to me Bike

Just got this on Saturday.

It's a '90
96,929 miles on the clock right now.
Two Brothers full system, right exit low mount.
The wheels are powdercoated pearl white.
front wheel is a 4th gen.
Front forks with gold valve emulators, installed by Catalyst Reaction.
Racetech front springs.
Bitubo rear shock. It was sprung for the previous owner, about 170 lbs.
RK X ring chain with Sunstar steel sprockets installed at 90,000 miles. Stock ratio
Corbin saddle
I have the solo cowl, but one of the tabs is broken
It is a 19 year old motorcycle, and you can tell up close, but it is not trashed. It still gets compliments everywhere.

That's the most miles I've ever seen on a bike. I wouldn't worry as it's a Honda

It was very well maintained. Unfortunately there's an electrical problem that I was warned about and it broke down on me on the way to work.

It's my fault. It should have been on a charger last night.

I can't wait to turn 100K miles

I am freaking shocked
Thats a 13k bike easy... I think there is something to that deal though. Doubt you could walk out of the dealer paying less than 9.6-10.5k
Thats cheaper than a 600...

Yeah, it was going for 2600 but I traded 2 guns, a compound bow, and a broad sword for it. Probably all worth 1500.

I'm taking it to my shop tonight.

I wouldnt doubt if there is no title or no engine... There is no way that a new rr1000 is going for that price or maybe i am in denial...
