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:

The bike comes with one key, both side and top cases (3 extendable BMW keyed OEM cases), a full tank gas, and all the service records. The clear New Hampshire title and Bill of sale will be issued with the sale.

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: 2012 Brno Results

Mon, 23 Jul 2012 00:00:00 -0700

Biaggi, who arrived in the Czech Republic with four wins and nine podium finishes in ten previous races at Brno, was held off the podium this year, shrinking his lead in the championship to 21 points from 48.

Capirex’s New Ride: the BMW M MotoGP Safety Car

Wed, 11 Apr 2012 00:00:00 -0700

Retired racer Loris Capirossi has been named BMW M MotoGP Expert, representing the official MotoGP safety car provider in the world championship. Since retiring from racing after the 2011 MotoGP season Capirossi has been serving as MotoGP’s Safety Adviser.

Ridden: BMW R1200GS Adventure

Fri, 07 Oct 2011 00:00:00 -0700

My first meeting with a BMW GS was an unfortunate one. It was going back a few years now (certainly pre-Charlie McGregor era) Having just picked up this new model, I’d ridden 100 miles on a warm summer’s evening to reach my house by dusk. Mindful of the fact that said house contained two frenetic, bark-happy border collies and a small, sleeping child, I cut the ignition, whipped the clutch in and planned a gentle coast up to the area outside my front door.
