We took this very nice machine in trade recently from a long time customer. We did not sell this one to him as he found this one himself acquiring it from the original owner in 2011 with just 7,000 miles. He obviously rode it much more than the first owner did. He also did a fine job of keeping all the maintenance up to date and in general the bike arrived at our door step in overall excellent condition. It is also nicely equipped for some local or long distance riding and adventures but like most machines there are more goodies you may wish to add to make it your motorcycle.
This one left the factory in Munich around February 2008 and was first sold in December of the same year so it’s actually been on the road just five (5) years; that’s an average of only 5,700 miles annually which is on the low side which brings some extra value to the table for the next owner. It comes equipped with the factory installed on board computer for temperature, mileage, fuel remaining, etc. plus cross spoke alloy wheels, heated grips, hand protectors, saddlebag mounts and of course integral ABS. It has long been a standard on BMW that their bikes are equipped with the tele-lever forks and the para-lever rear suspension for increased stability on any road surface. This bike has also had all of the required warranty upgrades performed including the ring aerial (key) and the fuel sensor, in this case both the sensor and the transmitter.
You can see in these fine images that the paint is in excellent condition as are the driveline components, the wheels, the exhaust, frame and basically everything. It arrived with a slightly scratched non-stock windscreen so we replaced it with a near brand new stock one. The stock grips were beginning to show some wear so we’ve added a set of the very nice Grab on grip covers which are much more comfortable and still allow the heated grips to work superbly; in fact we install these on about 75% of the new machines we sell too.
The added accessories are also in great shape and include a GIVI top case, a set of BMW’s expandable saddlebags (with a few small scratches), a very nice Sargent front seat which is a very nice upgrade to the stock seat, ROX machined aluminum adjustable handlebar risers, P3 front and rear LED running lights, a set of SW Motech engine/cylinder guards and a nice aftermarket throttle lock mechanism (alas it’s not a Bob’s Wrist Rest) to round out a very nice package.
And of course, as one would expect from Bob’s this bike has been recently and fully serviced. We’ve just performed a full annual service including the brake bleed and installed a fresh master cylinder diaphragm, we also renewed the alternator belt, installed a new front tire and put Nitrogen in both and then took it out for an extended test ride to confirm that everything functions exactly as it should and that it now qualifies for the exclusive ADVANTAGE CERTIFIED program which provides greater peace of mind and benefits. It also has a fresh Maryland State Inspection certificate attached to it. This one has 2 keys for the ignition, 2 for the GIVI top box, the factory tool kit and the BMW owner’s manual included.
We then washed it up and down and gave it a full detailing. We are confident when you see it you’ll be duly impressed with the overall appearance and value offered. Bob’s consistently delivers fully serviced, ready to ride and enjoy, turn-key used bikes in the greater DC, Virginia and Maryland region that set the benchmark few other dealers can match. And of all models, the GS’s don’t last very long so consider putting this on the top of your 2014 Resolutions List and just get that newer BMW you’ve been wanting for too long now; you know you’ve earned it.Color:
