This machine arrived looking very nice but also as a not ridden often enough and it was simply not running very well. As expected by our technical staff it was suffering from old fuel, a clogged filter and a few other small ills. Upon closer inspection we found some slightly rusty hardware, a fuel strip that was not accurate and a fuel pump that had seen too much sitting verses riding. There was also the issue of a worn out front tire and it being due for a full bi-annual service. We offered the prior owner fair compensation and then set about making it a perfect used BMW, which is exactly what Bob’s specializes in and so we turned the techs and the parts team loose!
This one was built by BMW in November of 2005 as a 2006 machine. It was originally shipped to BMW of North America in December of 2005 and then delivered to a retail customer on December 23 of 2006; that sounds like a Christmas gift to us. We are unable to confirm if the person we acquired it from was the first or second owner, but we he told us he was the first and only. The BMW warranty service history tells us that the bike remained in the DC area during its entire life and that a little warranty or service bulletin/recall work was performed by all three dealers in the area.
It came from BMW with Integral ABS, Electronic Suspension or ESA II, the On Board Computer and Heated grips. It also has the quickly detached BMW expandable saddlebags, frame sliders, dark tinted BMW screen, the BMW security alarm, a beautiful Sargent seat, white signal lenses and rear Hyper lights.
Now, after the work has been completed and the bike runs flawlessly what you see is a stunning example of the K1200R, a 150 plus HP machine that is amazingly fun to ride and not just on those short hops near home but anywhere your heart desires and your schedule permits. We’ve done the following in addition to our standard very inclusive and detailed MSI/PPI process which results in both a Maryland State Inspection Certificate and the inclusion in the ADVANTAGE CERTIFIED Program: full 12,000 mile and annual service including brake fluid, engine coolant, air and oil filters, new Michelin front tire, Nitrogen in both tires, Powerlett addition, new fuel sender kit, new BMW fuel pump assembly, reprogram alarm, replace an assortment of rusty hardware on wheels (very typical) and a few other places around the bike, replace the front ABS sensor, install new left and right heated grips, install a new BMW battery and then take it out for yet one more good test ride to insure it’s as perfect as it looks and we want it to be.
It’s ready for a new home and comes with a spare key and the owner’s manual. These special machines have been hard to come by, especially in such perfect shape as this one is in so don’t wait too long to stop in at Bob’s and check it out!Color:
