Hi all,
I was looking at a Vrod B from my local dealership, great price, really low miles. Kept having issues that service dept had to fix. Anyway, they have a 2005 SE set up with passenger backrest, and matching hard travel bags. Price is 9,999$. Not a bad price, I'm sure they will go down. Issue I have, is that it has 33,000 miles. Bike is solid, looks great, sounds good, I road it for awhile at highway speed and seemed fine. Should I be hesitant about a bike with that many miles, any questions I should be asking the dealership and are there any issues or problems with that bike.
Thank you

It's always good to have less mileage but 33,000 miles is not really a concern. Guys here on the site like RustyG have 175,000+ miles on these engines - if you change the oil, air filter and maintain it properly it will last you just about forever. Check the maintenance history on the dealers computer to see if the valve clearance check has been done at least once and when,how many oil changes - inspect the records and bike for abuse, corrosion, prior damage, age of tires, brake pad remaining etc. if it's all good and you can buy it for a decent price I'd go for it. Just the hard bags ( if they are the original H-D jellybean ones ) are worth $ 1200 in perfect shape. Good Luck !
