2008 BMW R1200GS FACTORY LOW CHASSIS

Demand for clean used R12GS remains strong, that’s because it is one of the most popular bikes BMW ever built . This one  was originally sold by Bob’s to the only owner it’s ever had – a longtime friend of the dealership in fact who is now riding an even more exciting BMW. Hmmmm; is that possible? Oh yeah – desire and the level of fun on two wheels is only gauged by the person in the saddle.

This machine has seen most of its exercise in the greater Washington, DC – Northern Virginia and Suburban Maryland region but has been outside the area on some shorter weekend excursions. It has been lovingly cared for and regularly serviced and maintained at Bob’s the entire time. But when it arrived in trade we did find a few items that we elected to spend good money on so that the next owner would truly have a perfect machine and one that offers far greater value than most comparable machines could provide. Read on to understand why. 

It came from BMW with Integral ABS II, on board computer, heated grips, hand protectors, BMW saddlebag mounts and luggage rack, the easy to care for cast alloy wheels, hand protection, factory LOW Suspension on top of a wide assortment of industry benchmark standard features like an adjustable windscreen and riders seat, accessory outlet, drilled dual disc front brakes plus a drilled rear disc brake and the patented Para-Lever rear and Tele-Lever front suspension components which allow the machine to handle the variations in road conditions better than most any other machine in the world.

It arrived with a full service having been completed while he was shopping for the new machine so the annual service was just completed at 14,219 miles. The Bridgestone tires are pretty recent and the front offers about 70% of serviceable tread while the rear offers about 80%. But where we really added value was in the brake department.

The rear disc, even with such low mileage was right at the no pass level according to factory specs and the Maryland MSI guidelines. That is not unusual for discs manufactured back in this era. Further we noticed under hard use we could feel a slight amount of warpage on the front rotors. Again, this is not terribly unusual on these earlier discs. While many riders would never notice we did and our high standards dictate doing something about this.

We took the high road and now all three locations sport brand new BMW discs, pads and hardware. That’s at a cost of roughly $1,500 to Bob’s and of course represents the presentation of all around brand new brakes for the next owner. We are confident that these should last considerably longer as well. We also completed the recent recalls on this machine – the fuel pump and the rear wheel flange so this one truly is above most any other 2005 to 2010 R1200GS one might compare it to.

It has been run through both our ADVANTAGE CERTIFIED Evaluation and inspection process and the Maryland Safety Inspection and is fully safe, roadworthy, comfortable and fun as reported by our expert enthusiasts. It is ready for you to test ride and then claim as yours. And while it does not carry tons of accessories there are a few and this will allow the next owner to customize it for their own needs and dreams.

You can see in the images it has a set of ROX bar risers, a set of Adventure foot pegs plus the BMW cylinder guards. And there is also a nice set of PIAA 1100 driving lights. And we especially like the larger shift lever cover. On the cosmetic side it’s about as beautiful, spotless and shiny as you could find and the professional detailing made it even more so. We found just one small blemish in the finish and it’s on the forward area of the luggage rack underneath the passenger seat so it’s probably never going to be seen by anyone after these photos come down.

This is one superb looking machine and no one will be disappointed when they give it a very thorough inspection and then take it out for a good test ride – you’ll find exactly what our Master Techs did – that it starts, runs, rides, shifts, handles and stops flawlessly. It’s why it qualified to be a select ADVANTAGE CERTIFIED BMW offered at Bob’s BMW.

Complete with the factory owner’s manual, tool kit and two BMW keys it is just waiting for you to take it home.
