BMW K-Series description

Amazing motorcycle flawless paint. Runs amazing. In perfect condition.  My history on this motorcycle is as follows: I purchased this motorcycle in December of 2011.  The motorcycle had some slight damage  ( see photo of side panel). The damage was very insignificant but I am a perfectionist when it comes to my vehicles.  I removed all painted panels and had them painted by my favorite body shop in Springfield, MA.  Ricks auto body.  They are perfectionists as well and have the it must be perfect attitude.  They painted all of the parts installed all new BMW decals and emblems.   ( Labor cost $2200.00. Decals and emblems in the $600.00 range.  Paint was around $400.00)  I also added side bags keyed the same as the ignition ( $700.00)  the paint is Glasurit the same as what the BMW factory uses.  Colors match what was originally applied to the motorcycle.  The damage was to the side panel as seen and a slight scratch to the engine cover ( see photo).  I believe the motorcycle fell over on its side stand in soft asphalt as there was no other damage to the bike.  I also installed a new Z-technik windshield ( $200.00).  I also put on a brand new Metzler rear tire ( $200.00) This bike comes with the cover pictured.  I changed out and still have the original instrument cluster because the chrome was worn and as stated before I am a perfectionist.  I completed the project and life got in the way of me getting it on the road with work and kids.  The bike has been stored inside in my basement under the cover for the past 4 and a half years.  In the end I have only rode this motorcycle 3 miles  to the gas station and back ( see odometer photo).  Bike runs awesome looks awesome and is ready for someone who will really enjoy the awesome look that this bike has.  This bike needs a battery.  I could put a cheap aftermarket battery in but that makes no sense to me as I have lovingly spared no expense on this machine.   Bike jump starts and runs as it should.  
Heres the nitty gritty:  Deposit of $200 via PayPal within 24 hours of auction close. Balance will be cash on pick up.  Item will be picked up within a week of close of the auction with exception to people traveling great distance to pick it up.  I will be happy to assist in loading of this item and ramps are on site. I am not able to deliver this item.   Item is in Springfield, MA.  If you would like to see it contact me and we can get together.  As always contact me with any questions.  Motorcycle is sold as is where it is.  There is no warrantee. I reserve the right to cancel this auction at any time as I have cross listed this bike elsewhere. This will make a great Christmas gift!!

Josh Hayes and Blake Young picked things up where they left off by trading wins at the 2012 season-opening AMA Superbike round at Daytona International Speedway. Reigning champion Hayes of Monster Energy Graves Yamaha took the first race handily, leading almost right from the start of the 15-lap race for the win. Yoshimura Suzuki’s Young, who finished second to Hayes in the 2011 AMA Superbike Championship, responded by taking the second race, but only by a slim 0.002-second margin.
