Did a brief search for something along these lines but kilometers and age - funnily enough - are both fairly commonly used words on a motorbike forum

This is a bit of a hypothetical situation, and also fairly open ended. As a matter of openness, I'm not in this situation, nor am I expecting any particular outcome or determination from any of the ensuing discussion.

Essentially, when buying a second hand bike that is in average condition (average is as good as any really, the condition of the bike isn't how we're discriminating to pick one) and you need to work out which one you wish to buy, how and why do you do it, assuming all other things more or less equal.

Bike 1: Newer model somewhat more kms on it.

Bike 2: Older model, somewhat less.

I suppose what I'm driving at is this, what do you put more value in, the odo or the age and why?
