2008 BMW R1200GS - Chile

2008 BMW R1200GS - Chile

Our lovely 2008 BMW R1200GS will be available from either Ushuaia/Punta Arenas in early December or Santiago, Chile in mid to late November.

It is a UK plated bike and in perfect mechanical condition. The bike has full BMW service history from new until we left the UK and was purchased from a retired RNLI serviceman who had looked after it well. The bike starts, handles, and rides exactly as it should and scrubs up well cosmetically (bear in mind it is a proper adventure bike). The ‘08 was the last model to come with fewer electronic enhancements - and so in our mind, far less to go wrong on your journey from Ushuaia to Tuk!

Extras with the bike:
Two sets of ignition and pannier keys
Heated grips (working)
ABS (working and not disabled)
SW mototech rack and Aluminium boxes
Denali daytime running lights
Givi touring screen
Upgraded Nitron rear shock
Carbon rear hugger
Bagster leather tank bag
UBB Port

More detailed pictures available on request.

Final mileage in Chile will be around 70,000 miles.

We will need around two days in either Santiago or Ushuaia to deal with paperwork at the local notary to make sure you, and we, have what we need for onward travel. Not beyond the wit of man - but as always, it will always take longer than you might expect but 48hrs should be ample.

3,800 USD o.no

Ps - HUBB now tells me I’ve been a member for nearly 10 years since my first big trip to Africa on an XRV750. More than happy to field questions or enquiries by PM, or WhatsApp on +447960726498.

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 all over the world with the help of volunteers; 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, or ask questions on the HUBB. 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. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
