BMW F800GS in Ushuaia...

I'm 2 days away from Ushuaia on my amazing 2010 F800GS. Bike has 17k miles. Just had tune-up in Santiago- oil, fork seals, rear wheel bearings. I have a lot of great add-ons on the bike, $16,000 invested. It is super ready to travel the world. Asking $13,000.
Let me know if you are truly interested- if no takers I will ship it home.
Best to reach me at bbdesingbuild@gmail.com
Happy Travels!

I think if you price it like that, you'd probably wanna start to organise shipping.

Side note, I've seen bikes offered for sale at only $2000. with much more thoroughly detailed ads which include several pictures.

Perhaps if you were serious about selling this bike, you would put the effort into a serious ad and come to a serious, well considered price.

A lot of bikes get advertised on here that are totally overpriced; sometimes for the same price as a new bike.... sometimes well dodgy as well e.g. a 600 Yamaha recently with altered mileage.

Caveat emptor is all I can say.

Beware pointing this out - I have received infractions before (not that I give a toss) when aggrieved advertisers whinge to Grant or moderators.

IMHO a fair price for that bike would likely not exceed four figures, but if the vendor can get more, then more power to him.

I made an offer to a vendor once and he blew a gasket - didn't counter offer, just went off on one..... funny lot.

You can't be serious.

More than two years old with 17,000 miles on the clock, stuck in the middle of nowhere, and you value it at $13,000 on the basis that you've spent unspecified amounts of money on unspecified accessories/upgrades?
