For sale is a very clean well cared 2005 BMW R1200GS with original paint, VIN: WB10317A15ZL76685, with 25190 miles.

I am selling this bike for the widow of one of my good friends who suddenly passed away last Christmas eve after the family dinner. 


This bike needs NOTHINH, but a new rider.

All the recalls, updates, and service bulletins are all up to the date with all the service records and BMW central data base.


As far as I know, this bike was serviced by the owner before it was put away for the winter. The battery was on the battery tender the whole time in the temperature controlled garage. The bike is clean and mostly stock beside few upgrades. The upgrades are as followed, WP shocks (both front and back), full Staintune exhaust system (sounds really AMAZING), throttle bar end cruise assit, and BMW motorrad Navigator II. The Metzeler Tourance is like new (I believe he put those on last full not too long before he winterized the bike).

I have performed a completely safety check of this bike myself, and put down 165 miles on 6/30/2016 the last day before the registration expired. The brake pads (front/left) have more than 60% left. Tires are almost new. Bike starts and runs as it should be. The WP suspension is a work of art. This might be the best riding motorcycle I have ever ridden. The exhaust sounds amazing. It's on the loud side when you have the throttle opened, but it keeps the tone low and deep while you are cruising.

This bike is a perfect running machine, but it is still a 10 years old bike. It has some road hazard marks all over the bike, but this is a GS. 


There are a videos of this bike on you tube for you to watch. Please search:

This bike needs NOTHINH, but a new rider. All you need to do is coming over, putting down your destination into the GPS, and your journey starts right at my front door regardless how long this journey is.

WSBK 2013: Jerez Race Report

Mon, 21 Oct 2013 00:00:00 -0700

Eugene Laverty did everything he could, scoring a pair of race wins but it was not enough as Tom Sykes rode smartly and conservatively at the season finale in Spain, securing his first ever World Superbike Championship. Sykes landed in Jerez with a 37-point lead over Laverty and a 38-point lead over Sylvain Guintoli. While Laverty battled Marco Melandri to win Race One, Sykes coasted comfortably in third for most of the race to score 16 points, enough to clinch the title.
