1999 BMW K1200RS
Grants Pass, Oregon 97526

Mileage: 8,515 U.S. miles
VIN #: WB10554A0XZA52171
The first thing that needs to be addressed for this 1999 BMW K1200RS is the concept of booking a vehicle. Books are guides, you do not ride them, you do not buy them, you use them to get an average of the values representing a particular car or motorcycle you are interested in. Also, banks, not being experts or having the time to become one, use them as a method of establishing a conservative value so they can do the business of loaning money on items they usually never see. Book Value is a guide. If a bike has a book of $4000 and has 78,000 miles and is worn out, the guide does not reflect this. If a bike has 8,515 miles and has had the most anal over the top service possible and then some, it does not reflect this. It is a guide. Ok, now I am done.

On to what is the prettiest motorcycle in our shop at the moment. This is a one owner, uncrated by himself at Hansen’s BMW when it was new, fluids changed every year regardless of use, tires and batteries changed when date codes deemed correct, never dropped, never abused, never left out in weather, 1999 BMW K1200RS. I have not even begun to talk about what a great bike it was and is!

So what makes this bike so great? The engine. Originally a 1000cc design, it grew to 1100cc’s and finally to 1200cc’s. This motor, if fluids are kept in it will not wear out. Won’t. Never seen it. Never heard of it. Just does not happen. Did I mention 8,515 miles on this bike? The rest of drive train was almost as stout with stories of 150,000 mile bikes still running around. Cosmetically the bike could have ridden off of the showroom floor at Hansen’s this afternoon. Not a blemish anywhere. It came equipped with hard bags and a soft BMW tail bag was added. Heated grips were not available when the bike was new, but the owner ordered them and they are still in the box ready to be installed. A recent service had all of the brake lines replaced and the brake system flushed. All of these service records are available at Hansen’s BMW and you can get them using the last 6 digits of the VIN and giving them a call.

This is one of the great touring motorcycles, one that BMW reestablished them selves as industry leader with. It was designed to eat up the miles in sporting comfort with control only a well engineered motorcycle can give. Over the years I have had two of these bikes and have about 25,000 miles on them. It has always been one of my favorite rides. The next owner is going to experience something few motorcycles can offer. You need to see this one.
