Claudio the LWD cameramans 1200ADV was on sale on ebay here in the UK last year...............It had a new beak and headlight but everything else looked much the same.........Even the blue tape on the Touratech crash bar bags was still there.

The seller( a car dealer) was asking around 11,000 for the bike but i reckon it was worth no more than 6500 as it was beat to shit and not really any different than any other 1200GSA that'd had a hard life.

Ewans 1150GSA was originally sold at a charity auction in the UK for around 80,000 You could make an identical replica of that bike with the same mileage, dents and all the Touratech/ohlins accessories for around 7000 at the time.

Even the faded red 'twat suit' is a sought after item and if you have one of the original Rallye 2's in grey or red it shows that you're an 'old timer' as far as ADV riding goes.

The grubbier the 'twat suit' the better!
