Depends on your perspective I think. That's only an average of 4,500 miles per year so it's not truely a high mileage bike, but at the same time so many HDs were bought by guys who were sucked into the HD craze a few years back that never really rode them much after they bought them, that you could easily find one that has 1/3 that many miles. Are you capable of doing your own wrenching on the bike or would you be taking it back to a dealer every time something goes bad? Not making a suggestion one way or the other here, just giving you some food for thought. We all approach these decisions differently. Have you looked around quite a bit in your area at other bikes, or is this one being considered only because it was conveniently owned by someone you work with? Don't rush into a decision until you're confident it's what will work for you.
