Forsale BMW F650 Dakar, BA Argentina

Hi all,

I rode my f650 dakar from Bogota to Buenos Aires, ending my trip in March 2012. I had a buyer but they pulled out just before I flew back to the UK. My plan now is to arrange to sell the bike and then fly over to BA for a weeks holiday to make the sale. So it's available from now up until October 2012 (when the current temporary import permit ends), after which I will ship it back to the UK if it hasn't sold.

Please use the email at the bottom to contact me. If you're in the UK and planning a trip I'm happy to meet up whether you decide to buy my bike or not.

The bike:


Details of the bike:
Make: BMW
Model: F650 GS GD (Dakar)
Year: 2001
Miles: 28,XXX at time of sale.
Registration: UK
Title: currently belongs to me
Service: Full service in the UK in Nov 11 @ 24k miles
Oil: changed / will change every 2-3k miles
Condition: Just replaced battery and rear pads. Small tears in seat cover.
Tyres: Continental, brand new as at 28/12/11


Equipment:
Touratech Chain Guard
Touratech luggage rack
Touratech engine bash guard
Givi pannier rack
Aluminium panniers
BMW tool kit, plus a few extras (chain tool, tyre levers, pump etc etc)
Spare tubes, nuts/bolts, bulbs, oil filters

Optional Equipment (not included in below price):
Garmin Zumo 550 with both Garmin and Open street maps for South America
Autocom pro intercom system with 2 headsets


F650 Dakars are built for adventure travel, and are really so reliable. I've had no problems and have driven up to 4,600m. A common problem with F650's is that the coolant pump breaks around 20-25k miles, but I had this replaced at 23k.

I'm from the UK, and flew the bike over, so this is her first real adventure. All papers are from the UK, so if you have a UK address it will be really easy to transfer the title. If not there are a few ways around this.

Looking for $4,500 USD

The timing and place of sale are flexible. Please email me on joe.hall.mail@gmail.com.

Cheers,
Joe

Hi - I would sell it seperately, but it's with the bike in BsAs and I'm in the UK, so don't know when exactly I'll be back over there to collect and sell it to you......
