Now available at Bob’s BMW is this well set-up 2009 BMW F700GS on-road / off-road adventure motorcycle. It shipped in BMW’s dark magnesium metallic with black frame and gold forks. It came complete from BMW with the always popular heated grips, on board computer, white turn signals and BMW standard and industry leading ABS. The ABS can be turned off for serious off-road use but is a fantastic additional while on paved roads and traveling.
BMW’s famous and very popular dual sport adventure model, the F800GS, has been used by countless world travelers and has been taken to the far corners of the globe. This F800GS, with only 24,000 miles on it, hasn’t seen that level of travel but it’s set-up for it and ready for its new owner to take it for the adventure it deserves! The F800GS has 85 horsepower. Comes with upside down forks with a 21in front wheel which gives plenty of off-road clearance. It has a 17in rear wheel. Both spoked and tubed. Lighter than the industry standard R1200GS but still designed and capable of any adventure, it also comes with an adjustable rear shock, its chain driven and has the fuel tank under the rider / passenger for a more balanced distribution of weight.
The previous owner added a high performance Touratech skid plate, GIVI side cases and rack. BMW low seat, Touratech hand guards and front R&G axle sliders / protectors. It also has the optional front beak extender and there is a battery charge indicator added as well as a battery lead for charging, powering heated gear etc. Not a lot of accessories, but an overall good selection for someone looking to get a bike today and leave for a trip tomorrow!
We did our full 38-point safety inspection and extended test ride. We decided to replace the previous seat with a fresher and new seat due to a rip. We had one of our Certified BMW Master Technicians do a full Bi-Annual Service including engine oil and filter, brake fluid flush and change front and rear, reset the service indicator and ran the computer and checked for faults (none found). During the safety inspection we found that the chain and sprocket was worn beyond 50% of life left so we replaced both sprockets and installed a new BMW chain. With fresh fluids, sprockets, chain and tires with an estimated 80% of their life left. This bike is ready to ride!
Cosmetically the bike is not perfect but all in all it’s a great pre-owned package. It has a couple scratches, rock chips, boot marks but you have to go looking for them. As you can see in the pictures the condition of the paint looks really good. The wheels have some marks from tire replacements, the right side hand guard has some scratches. The bike was definitely seen some gravel roads but you can tell from the skid plate and overall condition that it has only seen mild off-road use so far in its life. With the new seat and new looking side cases we would rate this F800GS an overall 8.5 out of a very critical 10 cosmetically.
We did the very thorough Maryland State Inspection which is passed with flying colors. We gave it to our detailer and let him give it the full day treatment. Looks the business! We ordered a new spare key. It now comes with the owner’s manual, complete tool kit under the seat as it comes from BMW and 2 keys for the bike and a set of GIVI keys for the side cases.
