    '07 1200 GS in good condition. This GS was used as it was designed, so it does have assorted scuffs but nothing significant. I did go down once on a trail and mangled the brake pedal; I replaced the actuator, linkage, bearing and straightened the pedal.

    This is a great bike, if you are looking at it you know. I bought it in 2011 to ride with my best pal on little trips to fly fish and drift aroung- he was a great guy rode a 750 Guzzi to Costa Rica in 1974 till it brokeWell he is gone and I am in failing health my self- cant ride it any moreIt was bought from SE Detroit BMW John knows the bike and has all the records. Last year I spent about 2 weeks in the Finger Lakes and it got brand new tires that have 50 miles on then not even broken it- I alos added the flashing rear light and some very bright running lights- has the headed grips and comes with the two BMW Side Bags in Alum and a top bag The only issue I had with the bike is it wouldnt start- come to find out it was the failed design on the fuel pump- they replaced it under warranty and if you keep the pump covered with gas you are good to go It also has the very rare and rock solid Camel Toe side stand pad.
