Re: 2012 BMW R1200GS - $11,500

That is a good looking bike!

I had no idea you bought a GS!? When did that happen? Did Tracy like riding on it with you?

Quote:
"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

Re: 2012 BMW R1200GS - $11,500

I had a Victory Cross Country that I had put up for sale here(I think) and on ADV rider at the end of 2016. A guy from Murfreesboro Tennessee asked if I would be interested in a swap for his GS as he had just bought an Africa Twin. I had just bought a Buell Ulysses XT from a member here and decided that I would swap for the BMW and keep the one that I liked best.

I ended up wrecking on the Buell in May, totaling it and almost totaling myself. In August my house got hit badly by Harvey, and in September I started grad school. All that is to say that I do not have the time at the moment for a touring bike. I took one trip to the hill country in February and hog hunting in Waelder in November (the picture in the first post). I think I want to sell this GS and buy a physically smaller bike.

I am not in a hurry since I own it outright and full coverage through Progressive is just over $200 for the year. If it doesn't sell then I will look into lowering springs to fit me better. Since it has the ESA suspension the cheapest option I have found is through EPM Performance to rebuild the stock ESA shock and fit shorter Hyperpro springs. Two issues that I have are that is still a $1,000 option and I am not fully convinced that riding a lowered bike did not contribute to my accident.

Yeah Tracy likes it. She still remembers you taking her for a ride on your 1150 many years ago. She likes being able to see over me instead of around me.

Re: 2012 BMW R1200GS - $11,500

I did. I like the GS better than the Tenere due to the lighter weight and lower CoG.

I forgot to add the rox risers and kaoko throttle lock. There may be other things I am forgetting so I will edit the original post as needed.

How about trading for a 990 + a little cash?

No, thank you. I am not interested in another adventure bike. I am looking to physically downsize.

Is your bike lowered?
