I have been riding for years! I have had many dual sports, harleys, and other bikes but this is my first BMW. I got a pretty good deal I think. I just bought a 2005 BMW R1200GS, with 300 miles on it.... yes that's right a 2005 with 300 miles on it (and this is 2011). I had some hesitations about buying it because it was an early year for the 1200GS. But this is literally a new left over bike from 2005. So instead of paying 20k for a new one, i paid half of that. Seems like a steal to me! Let me know if I got screwed on this one, although I dont see how, everything on it is like new. Let me know too if there are problems that I need to keep an eye out for, like are these bikes known for having any kinds of problems? Thanks in advance guys I appreciate it.
