newb post - '05 K1200S questions
I've been a long time admirer of K bikes but have owned Triumphs for almost 50 years. My first and only BMW bike was a R69US - a long time ago!
A friend is selling his '05 K1200S ABS with ESA and I want to buy it but know nothing - I mean nothing - about them. The bike has less than 7,000 miles! It's in absolutely pristine condition having been covered most times and kept on battery tender. It has side saddle bags, smoked windshield, bmw alarm system, slave clutch reservoir (??), carbon fiber bits, gauge accents, throttlemeister, v1 mount, v1 led helmet warning system, leovince titanium slip on, led taillights, air horns, intake system, etc. It's the all blue version, not blue and white.
What do I need to know and check before I pounce on it? Any issues on '05 bikes that would keep me away?
