if someone is going to roll the odo back, they are going to wind it back from something like 80k miles to 20k miles.
You could easily tell if your bike had been used more than 20 or 40 or 60 k miles.
The Royal Star I bought last sept was owned by a guy who got it ten years ago with 22k miles on it, and he only rode it 2000 miles in ten years.
I put another 1000 on the odo within a month after buying it.
With less than 10k on your bike when you got it, it probably still had the original tires on it - you could tell from the date code if you had looked at them. The rear tire only lasts about 10 to 12k miles, so if your rear tire looked like new, it had been replaced because it was getting dry rot.
I agree with other posts, there are a LOT of people who buy cruiser bikes with a head full of being a rugged individual lone rider on the great american motorcycle road trip, and find out their hands and butt get numb after 100 miles in one ride, or they dont take a good MSF course and they scare the hell out themselves because they dont know how to counter steer, and they hardly ride the bike at all... then sell it years later.
