For the price, you did well.. and as a commuter bike, it's perfect to beat around town on it and to go on trips.. A lady friend of mine has one and she has something like 45,000 miles on hers, no problems, except for frequent steering head bearing replacements.

I wanted to like this machine for the simplicity and the belt drive but I just couldn't deal with the looks when I nearly bought one (for $5500!) several years ago. I am tremendously envious of your find, a steal and so very very practical. I love belt drive, though the comment about this being the "PT cruiser of bikes," gave me pause. I've read the exact same description of my Bonneville from people who think the Hinckley twin is a heaving pig. People are hard to please.

That is such a smokin deal. Great gas mileage, belt drive, stone reliable, what's not to like? I put 25K miles on a Funduro with not a single problem, and 6K on a 2005 F650 GS and it was trouble free. Probably the most reliable BMW ever. You may find luggage options limited for the CS, but I'm sure there are work a rounds for that.

Red tape is slowing me down! I can't get tags until my insurance company electronically enters my coverage into the DMV database. C'mon Flo, get busy, will ya?

Very cool bike. A great deal for what you get.

What's the divot in the 'tank' area for? Some sort of pod case?

Kinda, it was an"interesting" idea that did not catch on. By moving the actual fuel tank under the seat, it lowered the COG, and opened up the traditional fuel tank area to be a storage area. BMW offered multiple options of soft case, hard case, and even an audio system. Seems like most CS owners use it for a soft tank bag or helmet storage.

My brother in law in Kentucky has a CS for sale. He's not an ADV member. PM if you want details. What great bikes these little scarvers are!
