I’m finishing my MSF course tomorrow, and chomping at the bit to get my first bike. (I’m 52, 5,8” and average strength.) I’m looking at a 2009 V Star 950 tour with a little over 4000 miles for $4500 on Craigslist. The bike looks immaculate in pictures, and the ad says it’s a one owner bike, it’s always been garaged and covered and on the battery tender.

My question is, does this seem like a good price, in general, and I’ve also read a few things about bikes not being ridden enough can get all gunky and corroded. Do you think that’s some thing I should be concerned about?

Thanks,

David
