99 K1200RS for a song

Always wondered how people got so lucky in deals that I see all over forums. Today was my day. Scored a nice 99 K1200RS with 21k mikes and all service records. Needs a little TLC from being stored outside, but WOW, I'm impressed so far. Just rode it 30 miles home. Pics to follow this evening.

It was dropped at a stop light on the right side. Nothing cracked but the paint was scratched to the primer. I may eventually paint it, but enjoying it too much right now. Has a fork seal leak and need all the fluids changed. Will get after it soon.

Congrats! That's a really nice looking bike. Who doesn't love a great deal?!?!

Of course, the natural question is....How much of a song are we talkin' here--- Stairway to Heaven or Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star?

Im looking for a back rest like you have.. can you see if there are any mfg markings on it so I can try and find one onlilne (or if you dont want yours I may offer to make your bike a little less expensive lol)

But seriously, you stole that.. congrats. She's clean.. and also, seriously, who made the backrest?

Meh....Does it at least have ABS?

HA!! Just Kidding! Dude, that is the most insane deal that I've ever heard of. That bike is a beauty!

You must have helped a bunch of little old ladies across the street to build up that much positive karmic energy!

If you're referring to the passenger "stealth" backrest that his helmet is resting on, I think that it was an OEM option from BMW. I've seen a few online recently. Here's one on Ebay for $25 starting bid or $100 buy it now.
