    Thanks for the reply - this one has ESA, side bags and a sport(?) windscreen and GPS. $5999 and potentially lower according to the dealer website. I'll go check it out this weekend. I've only had my Tiger a year, but it just doesn't quite "fit" me.

    Providing that the bike looks and rides as virtually new bike w 11K mi should, considering the options, if you can get it for less than or equal to $5K, you'll do very well... :thumb

    There were few recalls that should've been completed (rear wheel flange, fuel flange, fuel strip etc) so you may want to inquire if those are taken care of or not. Not a big deal if not but one may wonder why not...

    That seems to be a very reasonable price for the current market.

    Thanks again for the replies. It is the local Bmw dealer, so getting them to check on the recalls should be pretty simple. In theory.

    ^ I was referring more to previous owner staying on top of the bike and recalls than else. Great that you're getting the bike from BMW dealership so they can definitely take care of anything that hasn't been done before you take the delivery, providing all goes well during a ride...

    Few inmates have gotten similar MY Roadsters recently (private party sales), with half mi, luggage, top case, windshield but no ESA for ~$4K so above bike adjusted for ESA should go for ~$5k +/-...

    Pricing is very dependent on your market area. No bikes listed in my greater region for under $6k for instance.

    Might negotiate a valve check/major service. I may be getting my Tiger and R nineT (same Camhead) mixed up, but I think the check is 12K.

    Edit: Whoops...quoted wrong post. Oh well

    Yes, if it is in good condition with 11k miles, esa, cases and good svc, $6k is a deal and $5k is unattainable/steal in my area (northeast US).

    I have the XCx model with the 21 inch front wheel, so a little less road friendly for me - I don't like the handling as much as a pure road bike. Also, even with the handle bars on the higher setting, I always feel like I am reaching too far. I really like the triple engine, though. And the cruise control.

    21" front tire on the street = no fun sport touring.

    Rode the one I referenced earlier in this thread. Pretty nice. It has a new tire and has already had the 12000 mile service done. I suspect it will be my next ride. It is black with the white stripe. I did ride an s1000xr too. One is the girlfriend and one is the wife. Lol

    You meant S1000XR is "wifey" and R12R is "mistress girfrien'", right? :lol3
