I know exactly what you're saying! But I love BMW. This will be my 9th BMW and my 3rd boxer. I always regretted selling the big GS. I thought about the 1200 as I rode one last summer but I just have...

Well, yes of course, it's a flat twin. Don't you know your bikes?




I have lots of issues when it comes to motorcycles. One of them is that I change quite often.

The seller is a BMW dealership.

Brakes, bags, windshield, top case... It won't be such a good deal once I'm done with it. But it will have all the accessories I want.

Back in Da Club

I just purchased a pristine 2003 R1150GS Sport. It's got 8,200 miles on the clock. No farkles on it other than the crash bar. But that's ok. That will give me time to figure out what I want to add.

Fluids need to be changed even if the bike is not used. Rear dif, transmission, brakes, oil. If the bike sits for longer periods of time, the gas should be flushed or add sta-bil.

Yes it is super clean but it lacks maintenance records. Who knows what was done and when. So when you factor in the price he is asking plus the required maintenance, that's a lot of dough.

Ok, then how about the 1998 R1100GS going from $5,500 (May) to $4,900 and still not selling?

At least I am using some example.

Apples to oranges: the GS is not a rare bike. The Paul Smart was a limited edition.
