Sure no worries. Im based in Sheffield.
The bike was bought for my wife by me back in February of this year from a fellow traveller. It has 16k on the clock, is MOT'd and Taxed to May 08. The bike is factory lowered, meaning that straight out the door its got specially lowered shocks and smaller travel forks (not dropped through the clamps like other 'lowered' bikes) so that geometry is not affected. It also has the added bonus of the optional BMW 'low' seat, knocking a further couple of inches off the overall height.
The bike is standard except for the following:-
Puig touring screen (very similar to the 650GS dakar version)
Kenwood radio for bike to bike intercomms
FAMSA tank bag
Vario panniers + rack (with locks key coded to ignition)
ABS + heated grips
The bike is an 04 R1200GS in rock red/silver side panels. The bike itself is totally standard, bought from Rainbow BMW in Nov of last year as a approved used motorcycle. It came complete with 1 year warranty and european breakdown cover (which can be transferred to you). It is taxed until Nov and MOT'd until Apr 08.
The bike is totally standard, except for the following additions:-
touratech zega panniers + rack
touratech gps mount
touratech 2610 anti-shake cradle
garmin 2610 sat nav
kenwood radio for bike to bike intercomms
FAMSA tank bag
touratech tail bag
Never dropped, crashed, or 'mistakenly dropped on the garage floor'. Its got 35k on the clock, full bmw service history, and I think am the 3rd owner. Got full paper work, spare set of keys, data tag and bmw alarm.
Absolutely great runner, and has never failed on me.
