My bike was 12 years old and only 690 miles when I bought it. They just parked it in the garage and never got around to selling it. Bad for them, good for me!

exactly...2 years, not 10...one would think after not riding it, you'd get rid of it....why let it collect dust for 10 years? the thing is depreciating, not appreciating....I wouldn't give more than 4500 for it....:/:
