Anything over $12k for that bike is amazing, IMHO.

a couple months ago, one with mileage in the high teens went for 15k. It all depends on whether the right buyer finds it.

While mine still has few miles on it, I have no desire to part with it. Nobody would pay me what it would take to change my mind.

No...but it's nice to know that if I had to sell, I wouldn't take a beating.

That's a rare thing for me.

You riding yours up to WetFest to hang out with all those filthy hippies?

I just wanted to state officially that I miss my 04'R1150GSA. I replaced it with a used 08' R1200GSA after my 1150 was totaled in the driveway by my wife crashing into it while parked about 1 year ago. I had ridden it 80,000 miles and I loved that bike

I have ridden the 1200 for about 15,000 miles now and like the extra power but may go for a nicely kept 06' 1150 GSA next time I "upgrade".

I don't own a BMW, but just the other day I realized how fewer and fewer 1150's I'm seeing on the highway. Don't get me wrong the 1200 are sweet machines as well, but I miss seeing the 1100 and 1150's on the road. To me, the 1150 GSA was one of the coolest looking bikes ever built.

When the time is right, I'd love to pick up "an old" 1150 GSA and give it a home! They are already a classic in their own time.

Someone is getting a screaming deal on this one. At least they are with 2 hours left.
