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. :?:

I guess it depends, if you know the bike, 40K-50K if well maintained should be no problem.
I have heard of some sport bikes going 60K, 150K on touring bikes is not unheard of. I would think that some of these had some major work done, but thats to be expected. I know 1 guy who put 6K on a honda espree (50cc scooter) just driving around town, in 3 years. Now I'm sure there are those out there with more mileage than that. Usually the reason for selling them is ther'e bored with them or they want something different.
Like a car with 150K on it, if properly maintained should go to 250K.
