Up for sale is a well-cared for and much loved 2008 BMW F800ST. The previous owner and one of our favorite regular customers did all his services at Bob’s BMW and is regularly seen hanging at the shop and coming to events and attending rides. He traded up to one of the new adventure bikes, an S1000XR, so he can experience a different type of riding and explore new adventures. This creates a great opportunity for someone looking for a great lightweight sport tourer with all the safety and technology features that BMW is known for at a fantastic price. This F800ST came from BMW with the very desirable low suspension package, ABS, on board computer, saddle bag mounts, heated grips, TPM (Tire Pressure Monitor) and white turn signals.
The previous owner put a standard BMW seat on which still makes for a low seating position but with a lot of extra comfort. Especially on the longer rides. He also added a really nice PUIG tinted windscreen and the exhaust has been upgraded with a Z-Technic slip-on muffler. The headlight bulb was improved with a brighter PIAA bulb with higher output. He also added a couple tank pads and knee pads. This bike is very well sorted and nicely accessorized.
As earlier stated this bike was very well-cared for and serviced. Most recently the bike had new foot peg rubbers installed and a new headlight bulb. The front and rear tire pressure monitor sensors where installed as well as brand new Michelin tires. The wheels and luggage rack where removed and powder coated a really nice deep black. We also completed a full annual service including renewing engine oil and filter, 38-point safety inspection, test ride, checked computer diagnostics and reset the service calendar.
Cosmetically we would rate the bike an 8 out of 10. As stated it was a very loved bike but it does have 42,500 miles and has been ridden for the last ten years. That’s less than 5,000 miles a year which we would call the perfect amount for a pre-owned motorcycle. Ridden enough to keep all the moving parts operating as designed and getting annual services to keep fresh fluids in the bike. All without putting too many miles on it which would potentially require additional services or repairs. 5,000 miles a year is the sweet spot in our professional experience. There are some small paint chips or light scratches but they are light. The rear wheel shows some wear on the edge, there is some road chips and light aging across the bike as you would expect along with a small dimple at the top of the muffler. But overall the bike is super clean and looks very fresh and is cosmetically very nice looking.
After doing our complete and very thorough evaluation we handed this F800ST to one of our BMW Master Certified technicians. They put the bike through the tough state inspection and did an extended test ride and pre-purchase inspection. The bike passed the inspection with flying colors. We gave the bike over to our professional detailer who spent a full day bringing what was really a very clean and nice bike up to a whole other level of detail. This F800ST is going to make someone very happy and it is a great clean pre-owned bike ready for its new owner to take it home. It comes with 2 keys, owner’s manual and factory tool kit.
