What milage??

Hey guys
I'm looking to get my second 929 and am wondering does anyone know a way of telling if a bike has the correct milage, the bike in question is a 2000 929 with only 13k on it.
My last one had 16k but as it goes around after it reaches 100k it really had 116k.
Is there a way to check?
Thanks

Your location would help, because in the UK there is a way. Simply check the DVLA website: https://www.gov.uk/check-mot-history

(For non-UK readers, an MoT is our form of annual roadworthiness check. The mileage at testing is recorded. Using my bike as an example (R900 TAD) you will note mileage history back to 2006)

Other means would be trying to back trace service history from previous owners.

To use your example though, @Mac09 , there would be hell of a lot of visual difference between a 16k bike and a 116k bike! I recognise that you've used that only as an illustration, but the pertinent point is looking for signs of corrosion; frayed cables; dates on tyres; condition of oil; sponginess of suspension; and the big one that I never fail to do when looking at a purchase is to lay on the ground and look beneath the bike. If the bike is caked in muck, you will know that the bike has been superficially prepared for sale and not owned by an enthusiastic devotee. In my view, time to walk away at that point.
