I'm upgrading.

Bike Sold

Sorry guys,

The bike sold pretty quickly, and in fact, I traded it in for a 2010 Kawasaki Concours. As much as I loved the bike, honestly, I was getting tired of false brake pad warning lights, failed fuel sender, and for the second time, I started seeing signs that the clutch was going to need replacing at just 25,000 miles. But most of all, I didn't trust my dealer, which was BMW Motorcycles of Ft. Lauderdale (441 Cycles). As much as I loved this bike, they're not a reliable as I would have expected, and my last 3 bikes have been BMW.

I still have the Remus Exhaust, Top Case, Wunderlich Luggage Rack (new) and Wind Deflectors. I am not selling these at 50% off given that they were intended to go with the bike.

Top Case ($595)

Luggage Rack for Top of Top Case (NEW). $139

Remus HexaCone Titanium Slip On Muffler (Austria)-- Weighs only 1.5 kg. Adds horsepower and torque. MSRP: $838 with shipping
I'm looking for $495 plus shipping

Call me or text me at 561 704 9180 or email me directly at [email protected]
Please note that you saw this on the K-bike forum.

Thank you
