2006 Bmw K1200r

For sale 2006 BMW K1200s with 18,000 miles. Asking price is $6,500. The bike is located in Iowa City, IA

The bike has ESA, ABS (Broken), and bike computer. I have added center stand. I just installed a new front Metzler Z8 on the front.

The bike has been a few minor blemish and a rip in the saddle. I am moving onto a smaller bike for around town. No trades.

I'm at a loss, is moving to a smaller bike really necessary? I commute through some of the most dense traffic on earth (work in central London, live in suburbs) and find it easier than the Honda 600 I used to ride, owing to the more upright ride position and the fact the mirrors are mounted to the bars (wriggle wriggle).

Good luck on the sale anyways

I found the weight and length a little unweildly in parking lot manuevers. And the early k12's had a steering damper that was WAY TOO STIFF. Remove the damper and viola!! no more arm pump getting out of a parking space.

Nice looking bike! Hope it sells quick for you.
For $6500, that is a whole lot of bike.

I probably just should lift more weights.

'06 K1200R- in pieces
'73 Honda CB500F- slow but fun.
'77 Yamaha XS 750 triple- kinda
