    I bought this bike a couple months ago as a curiosity with its front suspension design. After a few longer days in the saddle, I really don't think this riding posture is for me.

    The short list:

    $4000 for sale in Williamsburg, VA

    2005 K1200S with 35k miles
    Heated grips
    ESA
    functional servo brakes
    OEM sport luggage
    Remus hexacone exhaust
    HT moto seat cover
    relatively new Pilot Power tires (~1-2k miles) and brake pads
    and a pristine set of fairings (the previous owner managed to drop this beautiful bike on both sides... so I found a full set of OEM fairings to put on when it needs to look good =) )

    The only cons are 1 key and the fuel strip sensor doesn't work at the moment. My nearest dealer is a couple hours away. I just haven't had the time to order a second key or replacement fuel strip yet.

    Morton's says they can replace the fuel strip (with 2 year warranty) for about $300 or so. The trip meter works fine... $300 in gas will take you a long way =)

    Here's the bike with the like-new fairing set installed:

    Bump and a price adjustment!

    Someone wants this awesome sport-touring machine. I'll entertain any reasonable offer, the worst I'll say is no! :deal

    Do you have any service records from previous owners?

    Also comes with a rear stand:

    Tires are nearly new:

    The paniners have some scuffs & scratches, commensurate with use and the couple of drops I mentioned in the OP:

    More photos with the "good" fairings on (these, and the original "scratched" ones are OEM, and are a full complete set each):

    Here's the scratched fairings (these were on the bike when I bought it, and then I tracked down a complete OEM replacement set), perfect to maintain that BMW Indigo Blue and Alpine White paint scheme at your favorite track:

    Feel free to take advantage :deal


    It seems I have that kind of luck with bike selection. I had an ST1300 that I took a bath on trying to sell a couple years ago.

    Bump, price adjustment. This is an awesome machine with two full sets of OEM fairings. >160 HP, ESA, ABS, heated grips, tires and brakes with plenty of life left. I've put a little over 1000 miles on the bike since I've bought it.

    Someone's going to get a great deal on this bike :deal

    You need to pack them in there man! I see room for at least THREE more bikes in that garage! :lol3

    Kick your wife’s minivan out and look what you too can have!

    Does the bike come with a clear, non salvage title?

    The title is clear and in my name, current VA inspection.

    I could probably fit the KLR in here, but then I wouldn't be able to just ride into the garage. My driveway has a good slope to it, so manuevering bikes around can be a challenge without starting them.


    This K12 doesn't take up nearly as much space as that Harley... :deal

    Deposit received, off to a new owner in a couple weeks. I bet they'll enjoy this bike in the mountains =)

    I'm trucking it down to NC tomorrow :deal

    I was supposed to deliver the bike tomorrow (6/29), but some things outside of the buyer's control cancelled that meeting.

    We'll try again next Saturday 7/6. Stay tuned. :ear
