This machine arrived here at Bob's as a 9.8 across the entire rating spectrum, the one Bob created some 3 decades ago and has constantly refined. It is a pretty critical process. Now it's a solid 9.995 cosmetically and a clear 10 mechanically. As you might imagine we did not have to do much to make that happen but we did have to go far to acquire it. Once we had it in our hands we brought the service up to date and installed a new set of Metzeler tires with nitrogen. The 18,000 mile Annual service was performed (documented) by another well respected BMW shop just 100 miles before it arrived here so there is nothing to be done but ride this beauty for at least the next 6,000 miles.
Sold new by another BMW shop out of this area in February 2010 it is still under factory warranty until 02/19/2013 and also qualifies for the Bob's Advantage Certified Program. It came well loaded at the time with ABS, ESA II (electronic suspension adjustment), on Board Computer (OBC) for tracking all sorts of useful data, The heated seats and heated grips, electronic cruise control, the factory accessory outlet, electrically adjustable windscreen and a few other assorted goodies. But the good stuff does not stop there -- it starts there!
This bike has only 17,520 original miles and came in with the BMW luggage rack covered by the BMW removable 49 liter trunk which will hold two full face helmets and a spotless BMW ZUMO GPS mounted neat as a pin and solid as a rock and with the carrying case & security tool. The owner books, 2 standard keys plus the plastic emergency key are also included. And by now, if you recall and wonder why it got down graded to a 9.995 instead of a 10 on the cosmetics there is a tiny scratch in the rear lower corner of the left bag lid -- hard to see but it's there.
A great value and worth flying in or taking the train to Bob's to grab if you don't live nearby as it will not last very long!
