Need 2nd opinion

I'm looking at a 2006 BMW K1200S in great shape, but it has 48k miles. Dude is asking $5400. I could really use other's advice on this one. Seems like excessive miles to start dealing with, even though I could probably get him down to $5k.

Any second opinions on this bike?

The bike is 11 yrs old, that just over 4k a year- average. I would always recommend a used bike with average or a little more miles than a garage queen. Ask for all service records, recalls etc. see who did the last service and give them a call to see what they think of the bike. They might have said you need to put in x dollars and decided to sell it. Then, if possible ask to ride it for a few hours to see what's what.
