How many is too many?

How many miles on a use bike goes over the limit when looking to purchase? I hear 10,000 on a bike is a lot... but with the way I have been riding I think I could easily put 10k on a bike.... plus some. :?:

The 10,000 mile rule can be described in only one way: an old wives' tail. No offense to old wives. It may have originated during the era when motorcycle engines, mostly HD's, needed to be rebuilt every 10-15,000 miles. Then Japan came to town, and that nonsense ended. Now, even HD makes engines that last a good long time with regular care.
