Which one would you get?

Wondering which one you guys would get and what's too many KMS on a bike (I'm in Canada so seasonal riding only)

2007 gsxr 1000 with 18,000 KMS for $5500
Or
2012 gsxr 1000 with 30,000 KMS for $6000

Is 5 years newer worth the $500 extra if it has 12,000 KMS more?

Let's assume both bikes are in mint shape and all other variables are equal . Which would you buy out of the two?

Is 30k clicks too much for a bike?

The 2012, it's been ridden rather than just keep in a garage and hardly used.

I'd probably buy the L2.

Guess that one it is. I'll try and scoop it up tomorrow. He was asking 7500 but willing to come down to 6k. Not bad for a 2012 I think...

K7, because dual exhausts are better

Buy the one you like the most, or feel the most comfortable on.
