It’s been a while since En has ridden her motorcycle. I think it wound up being a too big for her. She tipped — then was spooked.
But the bike shouldn’t move with us to Seattle.
What we have here is a yellow BMW F650 GS from 2001 with just a hair over 12,000 miles on the clock.
The bike comes with the Givi bags pictured — so you get the side cases along with the top case as well. A smoked Givi screen is also mounted to the bike to improve the airflow at higher speeds. (I’ve personally had it up to 90 before — the one big cylinder gets the job done)
It has a fresh battery that’s only been in for a year or so. When not in the bike it’s been on a battery tender.
The bike, as pictured above, is lowered about 1″ from stock. This was done through the use of a pair of Kouba Links. The original links are included as well so it’ll be easy to return the bike to full stock configuration if you want. (I’ll even do it for you if you want)
Another bonus is an unused spare clutch lever and cable.
The tires are essentially new:
The 12,000 mile service was done by the dealership when we bought the bike. (As you can see Ennie didn’t put on a whole lot of miles) The oil and filter have been changed even more recently along with the brake fluid (2 years ago).
So with all that said… and a lot of hand-wringing and sadness… we’re looking to get around $5,000 for the whole package. Keep in mind we’re trying to move in a few weeks, so we are motivated, so please make an offer!
For an 11-year-old bike this is in great shape with only a few minor flaws. There’s a buggered up body-panel screw insert (like that when we got it) and a scuffed handlebar end. Otherwise this is in great shape and should get you a lot of good miles!
