Want to sell my K1200GT

Actually have no option other than keep it and not use it. Roads are full of photo radars, detectors does not work. Received a ton of tickets and ended up with my licence suspended for 3 months. Now I cannot even drive my car to work. Brought a 50 cmc scooter if you can believe that. Anybody in EU wanting to buy a grey GT12/2006/8000Km, never down, never abused fitted with small topcase and Garmin 2610 +maps in OEM Garmin/BMW mount let me know. You can ride it home, can issue export price (no VAT) since is company registered. Don't know price yet, have to check. It is full option- Xenon, ESA, heated seats...everything.

Bummer!

Sorry to hear about your situation in Romania. I understand speed limits, and obey them many times, in towns, near schools etc. If that's where you have photo radar and are speeding you should get tickets. But, if you're getting nabbed on the highway and open back roads, that is a real downer. Is it a large revenue generating operation for local municipalities? I hope you can get back to a motorcycle soon, albeit one not quite so fast as a GT, and I hope you can sell your bike soon.

Doru,

Sorry to hear about your problems. I remember reading many of your posts as you were
one of the early deliveries of the new GT. For what it is worth there is a product sold in the U.S that when sprayed on your license plate does not show the photo radar your number.
It is not visible until hit by a light or flash. I don't want to see you in more trouble, but
getting rid of the GT would be my very last option.

Phil

and... if you are caught with it on your plate in the US, you are going to jail and they will impound your bike and you'll probably never get it back

sorry to hear. In the US they use photo radar but at least in Colorado, it does not give you points on your license, only the fine, so you wouldn't lose your license.

there was another post about some guy wanting to get a K1200GT, and detune it to below 100 bhp so as to avoid a tax. so what, you guys got a Socialist nanny state situation going on there in Europe? dude, keep your bike, just move over here.

men it's a nightmare here! no radar inside town, you cannot ride anyway, whole city is jammed from early morning to late in the night. i am talking about open roads getting out the capital where i live. in 60 km for instance there are about 5 radars. have my licence suspended and still receiving tickets months old, now have another 4. got myself a 50cmc scooter, no licence needed. don't want to mention i also have a brand new m3 waiting.

thanks, i know about that, also available here, but these photo radars does not have flash light, spray is useless. there is also a polarisation foil that can be used, if angle of view higher than horizontal number becomes invisible. both illegal here.

Doru - Having been to Romania in July, I can appreciate having a bike (great riding), and why you could get caught speeding! We didn't get as far south as Bucharest, but farther north (e.g., Borsec), I think a GS would be a better choice given the conditions of the roads!
I hope you can work out your problems and be able to keep this bike, or get another soon.
Bon chance, Greg
