The 2004 R 1150 R listed on Phoenix CL , 18K miles looks unmolested. If he's motivated then you might score a great deal. Use the left over cash for gas, motel?
edit: The 2000 R 1100 R looks pretty sweet as well. Has the final upgrades that BMW made to the 1100 engine and gear box.
If you are determined to get a 1200GS then look for newer, but imo, either buy 2012 or wait for price drop. Lots of these are ridden hard. Unless gas drops you will see more 40 mpg high $$ maintenance motorcycles for sale soon.
