2009 NAVI with only 946 miles on the ODM. The new owner says it was poorly stored :( There is rust all the way down the fork pipes. Lucky for the new owner, it seems to start and run well.

Florida salt air?
The current owner lives more in the middle of the state. It is my understanding that lived under a carport.

Very possible it had a cover on it the entire time. The cover probably trapped the moisture.

Unusually low mileage and rust. Conclusion - flood vehicle/insurance salvage.

I believe the history on this one, was that the original owner had health issues shortly after purchasing it new. I think he might have only road it about 100 miles. Eventually he passed away, and it sat where he last parked it ... under the carport. Although I agree with covers trapping moisture, especially in humid climates like Florida has, but I'm told that this one didn't have one, and it might have benefitted from it. The current owner says the rust was caused from sideways rain.
