My 2011 103' motor has 40k plus on it, and runs like a Singer..... if maintained properly, you should be fine. Any maintenance records available?? If not, just pull the dipsticks, and just look at the "condition" of the oil, give it a smell if needed. If it's black and smells burnt, not a good sign....for ANY machine. :laugh

For the right price I'd say follow his advice and go for it. Older guy probably didnt ride it hard when he rode, most of the miles I would say may have been service miles, which most Police Dept try to maintain their vehicles pretty good cuz they don't have a budget to buy alot of new.... mileage will have a factor in the price. And as soon as you get it I would check the cam tensioners, just to be safe. Thats the only fail point that I have heard of at that mileage.

66k on my 2010 RGC. Runs better than new. Didn't see where it was a police owned bike. A brother has one and the main problem has been compensator sprocket,three done under warranty. It's got 40k.
