Thumbs up Good Travel bike for sale near Frankfurt/Germany!

Hi guys,

I am selling my BMW F 650 including Touratech Panniers, higher wind screen and tank bag, ready to go, good tyres. I live close to Frankfurt/Germany.

I could pick you up, and I help you to register the bike, I also buy it back after your Tour. 2 weeks in the Alps or 1 year around Europe, it doesn´t matter.

Just had 2 Australien guys here today, they just took off for France this morning!

I you need help to find a bike or for paperwork etc. - don´t hesitate to contact me.

See you on the road!

El Aleman - Jens

Thumbs up Price?

The bike itself sells for 2000.- Euro, the Touratech Panniers are like new, 600.- Euro, the tankbag for free!!! It has only 18 000 km, a little over 10 000 miles.

The whole bike goes for 2600.- Euro incl. pickup for the buyer at Frankfurt Airport! As I said, I help you with all the paperwork, and arrange a cheap room for you, then it´s up to you where you go - the ALPS are pretty close - the black forest is just around the corner!

Let´s go for the adventure for your life!

After your trip I also buy the bike back or store it for your next tour -
no problem!

See you in Europe! - Jens

Hello Jens, re:650

Hi there Jens, If only I'd seen this post a couple of months back. Oh well, maybe next time I trod off to Europe, I'll look for your posts here. Cheers again

Jens is the man to go with if you need a bike to tour Europe!

I bought an F650 from him last October and used it for nearly 8 months through Europe and the middle East. It was the trip of a lifetime for me!

Thanks again Jens!

Info on bike purchase

Hello Jen. We are flying into Frankfurt on Sept 5 and plan on purchasing a bike instead of shipping ours as we did last time. We are Canadians and heard it is not possible to buy and register a bike in Germany without a German address. Can we buy your bike and register it or not? We plan to ride 2 up for 7 or 8 weeks into Eastern Europe then sell again. Please send us some info thank-you. hkgassman@hotmail.com

Hi Jens,

I'll arrive in Germany more or less October 1, tour for 3.5 months before returning to the USA. My plans to ship my own bike are up in the air at the moment due to major breakdown on the road (warranty, but waiting for backordered parts etc. in North Ontario, Canada). I'm considering all possibilities, including buying from you.

Can you email me about what you've got on offer? Do you have other bikes ready to go or available? I'm agreeable, trustworthy and ready to commit within days (including cash down), but need to know what the next steps are in order to make decisions. At the moment, too many intersecting possibilities with little hard information.

Thanks much. Hope the riding weather is better there than here!
