This is essentially a new 14-year-old (young) BMW motorcycle. If it was a little younger by manufacturing date we’d include it in our ADVANTAGE CERTIFIED program but only BMW’s within a ten year span can be included in the additional coverage options that we offer with this exclusive program here at Bob’s BMW. But rest assured it qualifies, and then some, in all other ways. A two owner bike for the entire time since it left the BMW factory in Berlin it’s been very gently and lightly used and always kept in a nice, cozy garage when not. Just not ridden as much as we’d like to see, especially as it was in two owners hands, the last one for a very brief period.
Bob’s had just fully serviced this machine earlier this year at 1,392 miles including the installation of new tires and a full going over (Inspection 2, 12K, annual) and shortly thereafter the owner decided he was just not going to have the time to ride it often enough and selected to offer it to Bob’s vs. letting all that fresh service and rubber languish in his garage. We just gave it another top to bottom full evaluation, extended test ride and light freshening up along with confirming it is 100% safe and roadworthy by completing the MSI or tough Maryland Safety Inspection. Even a very recent Odyssey battery was installed during November of 2017 which was purchased at Bob’s BMW as well.
Bob rated this machine a 9.05 at intake on the cosmetics simply because it was in need of a full detail. Now that it’s been done by our professional in-house detailer it rates a solid 9.9 if not higher and the only blemishes are some scuff marks on one of the saddlebags caused by boot marks, other contact during storage time and a past owners efforts at trying to improve it before arriving at Bob’s. It went out for an extended test ride to confirm how wonderful it starts, shifts, handles, rides and stops and the ABS functions as perfectly as when it was brand new. Even Bob took it for a short ride. And we really think that many people might think it’s a brand new machine.
This is a rare opportunity to acquire a beautiful, if not flawlessly perfect example of one of BMW’s finest past machines. It’s a standard that’s sporty and capable of touring anywhere. And it is most assuredly all day comfortable. These models are hard to beat for longevity, fun and overall value. It comes with plenty of the gear to enjoy your future exploring, adventures, casual rides or commuting. It boasts a BMW tall windscreen screen. BMW silver and black luggage rack. BMW center stand (this was an option) and side stand, BMW heated grips, ABS braking system, special two-tone paint with graphics, Tele-Lever and Para-Lever suspension, chromed stainless steel muffler, overdrive transmission along with the fully all black driveline, cast alloy multi-spoke wheels, low seat option, BMW cylinder head protectors and key matched, easily removed, BMW saddlebags plus factory 4-way emergency flashers.
It’s all spotless. Controls, switches, lighting, hardware, frame, paint, decals, grips, driveline castings, exhaust, wheels, etc. all look like new. It comes with two BMW keys, the owner’s manual and a perfect factory tool kit in the pouch.
