This is by far the cleanest R1150RT we’ve had here in probably the last 7-8 years. A local, loyal Bob’s client who purchased this bike when he lived in another state had to give up riding and reluctantly offered it up to us. We gladly wrote the check and then embarked on taking a already sweet, cosmetically exceptional machine and bringing it up to our even higher stanards starting with the safe and roadworethy part. If you or someone you know is in the market for a well equipped touring machine and does not have a large budget this is a bike to be seriously considered as it’s about as sweet and turn key as you can find and it’s price dto be very affordable.
Back in mid 2001 when it was first delivered to the original owner (we believe the customer we purchased it from was the second owner based on service records) it came with a set of BMW saddlebags and luggage rack, heated grips, built in driving lamps (in main headlamp), dual horns, radio prep kit (wiring, box, antenna and controls), 3-position adjustable comfort seat, ABS, tele-lever, para-lever, electric windscreen, center stand, 5-spoke cast alloy wheels, stainless steel & chrome exhaust and the nicest lift handle ever designed by BMW or anyone for that matter.
But the owner did not stop there; in fact after his acquisition he added both Moto-Lites and a set of PIAA’s for greater evening visibility along with a Bob’s wrist rest, BMW Police extra rear brake light, a Back-Up riders backrest and matching pad for the BMW touring trunk or top case you don’t see pictured but IS INCLUDED with this offering and a set of BMW’s crafty small black cylinder protectors. There is also a full motorcycle cover as well. And cosmetically this bike is darn close to perfect but does have a few very minor scratches – one each on the mirrors, no doubt from contact from something in his garage. There is also a very minor scratch on the lower right fairing near the valve cover and one on the lower edge of a saddlebag. But despitye those minor nit picks a very close inspection will make 99.9% of people say “wow, that’s a beautiful machine” and non eof this stuff can bee seen from the proverbial ten feet. The wheels, exhaust system windscreen, seats, luggage, dash and well everything is in great condition – clearly a garage kept bike when not being ridden.
And speaking of being ridden, this bike saw very little use over the last 8 years which was when the last set of tires were installed by Bob’s and which we just removed to install fresh ME Z8 tires with Notrogen for the new soon to be discovered owner. We also drained the tank and put in fresh fuel, performed a tune up and replaced the valve cover gaskets, adjusted the valves, gapped the plugs which were still very fresh (under 1,000 miles according to service history), installed a new Odyssey battery and did a full biannual service including a full brake system bleed. And within the last 2,000 miles back we have also changed the fuel filter and all the fittings and lines in the tank and upgraded the alternator pulley and replaced the belt and there vwas another oil and filter change in that time/mileage frame as well. Again, as has been very standard at Bob’s for a very long time our goal is to deliver a bike which only need sto be ridden for quite some time.
This one comes with the factory tool kit, tire repair kit, owner’s manual and 3 keys that fit everything from the ignition to the radio box to the saddlengs and trunk. In our search we found a few other nice R1150RT’s scattered around the country and even though some were priced as this one is none were as clean, well equipped or as fully serviced so we know this represents an excellent overall value. If it were younger it would handilly qualify for the exclusive Bob’s ADVANTAGE CERTIFIED program. Come ride it and call it your own!Color:
