Hi Mikel
I have just returned to Australia for a couple of weeks to complete some work commitments. I will return to Texas as that is where the bike is at the moment.
It is a 2006 BMW 1200 GSA. It has never been crashed but i must admit i have dropped it a couple of times. I am only 1.7Mtrs and as you know the bike is BIG. To big for me really but i wouldn't have another bike for the type of travel.
It has been regularly serviced at about 15,000 K and i have done oil changes in between each of those.
After now 90,000 Km the only faults have been
Front shock absorber - replaced with Wilburs unit 5 months ago absolutely great now.
The micro swoitch for the break got a bit iffy and i had it replaced too again now no problem.
And only a week ago the fuel sensor (A factory recall warranty item) failed after 90,000 Km. It too has been replaced.
I have no doubt that she would give no problems what so ever to a new owner.
I have stuck mainly to 100 - 110 KPH during her entire life.
As i say i am in Oz at the moment and i will send some pictures in the next couple of days.
I am not sure what she is worth in the US but something around $14,000 here at home but it will cost me about $1000 to get her home. So i suppose i'll look around the $10K mark to try to make it attractive
As i say i have no idesa of the worth of such in the US but i'll do some research.
As far as papers i have maintained it's Australian Reg and i wouold look to transfer such to the new owner.
Ok as i say i'll get some pictures to you as soon as i get home. Can you send me your email address
