BMW R1150GS Adventure ~ Nottingham, UK.

For Sale is my BMW R1150GS Adventure, here's some details:-

£4999.00 - or Best Offer!

Registered 12/03/2004

Taxed 'till 31/12/2010

MOT 'till 08/12/2010

I've had three BMW 1150 Adventures, and this has the smoothest engine of the lot, it's lovely!

Please be aware that I hadn't washed the bike for these photos... It could easily look even better ;-)

Reason for Sale:-

I can't stop riding my gorgeous R100RT

Plus I have a Land Rover Defender

Plus I've seen something I want ;-)

Twin Spark engine.

ABS + Servo.

Enduro 1st Gear (VERY useful, most don't have this).

Black engine.

BMW Low Seat.

30,150 Miles.

1 Owner (Police Inspector) + me.

All Manuals.

Last Serviced at 28k Miles (Oil, Air & Fuel filters, 4 plugs, brake fluid, final drive oil).

Huge file of paperwork, going back to the original Purchase order... Datatag documents etc...

Serviced (at Ocean BMW) 6 times, then once up here by an Independent in Nottingham.

Bad Points:-

No 'GS' decals on tank (looks so much better without 'em).

Fuel gauge reads two bars off Full, when tank is full.

The eagle eyed amongst you may have noticed the mini rear indicators...

These will be swapped for the standard ones before the Sale.

Here is a list of the equipment that's on the bike:-

BMW Alarm & Immobiliser.

BMW Heated grips.

BMW Adventure Engine bars.

Brand new BMW battery just fitted.

Metzeler Tourance tyres.

Steel Exhaust Y piece.

Tinted standard height screen.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive.
