Nice bike! You got that for $5K? Wow! Even with a salvage title that's a steal.

Re: Found - [WTB]: a cheap R1200GS !

Thank you guys.
Yes, it's a salvage build. Plus some $$ for shipping almost 1000miles to CA then it's slily more than 5K a bit.
The hard saddle bags and windscreen were removed and shipped to me separately so you are not seeing them in the pic.

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

- How you mount the windscreen to the aluminum bar (magenta circles in below photo). I think my bike lost the part where those two bolts mounted to!

Re: Found - [WTB]: a cheap R1200GS !

Windscreen mounts with two small plastic pieces that bolt to the windscreen and slip into the holes in the metal mount. Also a couple of rubber washers to protect the lexan windscreen. They are easy to lose. Handguard mounts to the bar, clamp is just right of the windscreen on the photo above. It's silver clamp on silver bar.

Re: Found - [WTB]: a cheap R1200GS !

My hand guards are held on with big zip ties... The mount cracked and apparently BMW changed the design and I cannot find any one that sells the original styles. The zip ties have been working so it has not been a priority to fix

Just recalled this thread.
See the comparison to the current one - any different?



TWT stickers are traveling around Vietnam and SE Asia.

Yeah, it is a good one I have here. It allows me to have more choices of roads and terrain, and I don't worry if I have to go to the unknown roads.
