For sale - BMW R1200GS - outstanding condition, full service

Recommended Posts

*Edit* Now also here on eBay

Hello everyone,

The time has come for me to sell my BMW R1200GS. It's a late 2004 model (54 plate) on 24,283 miles and has a full service history. It's up to date with all recalls and I have all documents for history.

Some pics:











The bike comes with:

- Carbon wrap petrol tank

- Givi Airflow adjustable touring screen, and original standard screen

- Spare plastic key (for getting spares cut from if you lose the key)

- Akrapovic exhaust (sounds great!)

- Garmin Zumo 350lm sat nav, hard wired into bike's wiring loom. Also comes with car mount and charge cable

- Full BMW Vario expandable hard luggage set (panniers and top box). The top box has the safety mod to make sure it doesn't fly off when a pillion leans up against it

- Throttle palm rest (avoids hand cramp on motorways by resting your hand on a throttle clamp)

- SW-Motech Daypack tank bag which mounts to a petrol cap mounted ring (so doesn't scratch the paint). Excellent size for carrying gloves, wallet, etc.

- Odyssey high performance battery - never fails to start the bike on first press, and always kept on an Optimate battery optimiser

- Grip puppies (foam grips on handlebars to stop hand cramp from engine vibrations)

- Krauser engine bars

- Front mudguard which protects the front of the engine really well

- Braided brakes

- 2 level heated grips - warm and hot!

- Servo assisted (powered) ABS brakes (which work extremely well) - I don't think I'll buy a bike without this ever again

Selling because my partner and I are buying a house...and getting married. And they're expensive! The house doesn't have a garage (yet) so I want the bike to go to someone who'll get use from it, rather than me storing it at my parents until I can build a garage. With plenty of meat left on the tyres and a fresh MOT less than a week ago (with no advisories) it's ready for a big trip around Europe - I bought it for this to take my partner away but we never got round to it.

The bike had a full service less than 250 miles ago by Roy Gardner of RGM Croston, who is the go-to guy for BMW bikes (I'd take my bike to Roy over BMW any day. He's previously won BMW Technician of the Year and BMW Master Technician of the year so the bike has always been in safe hands). The only thing the bike needs looking at are a couple of brake bleed screws that Roy has advised probably need a bit of penetrant spray soaking to loosen up.

I'm looking for £6,500 for the bike and all extras. It's a dream to ride and whoever buys it will not be pleased as punch. I'm based in B98 0SA area, if you're interested please PM me.

I've relisted the bike on ebay at £5,999 - £500 off the original asking price. Just about to move house so need the bike gone, but won't go any lower than that price. If it doesn't sell I'll just hold onto it.
