BARF guidance info:

- model — R1200RT ABS
- year — 2005
- Pictures — see posts #2-5
- mileage — 42,600
- title info — clean, current

After 36+ years and over 210,000 accident-free miles and 3 IBA SS1000s and 4 bikes, I am selling my R1200RT and we are hanging up our helmets. I figure it’s been a decent run. It’s time to embrace the cage (sigh).

Ride safe you guys and lady BARFers.


2005 BMW R1200RT ABS, silver, with Corbins

Only 42,600 miles, barely broken in, original owner.

This is a solid running, bulletproof 1-owner bike. Never any problems with this bike. See pictures, I’ve ridden this bike from San Francisco to St. Louis, Phoenix, the Grand Canyon, and several times to LA. The engine is barely broken in. No accidents, never crashed, never down. A tipover or two.

Features / includes:
  • ABS
  • Heated grips, and heated front and rear seats
  • AM FM CD, and good speakers, the sound can be heard clearly at freeway speeds (and I wear earplugs
  • Cruise control, can be set at up to 100 MPH (but not over)
  • BMW tank bag with rain cover ($300)
  • BMW saddle bags and saddle bag liners (inner soft bags for carrying its contents)
  • Corbin leather saddle with back rest ($1,200, their Sport Touring dual saddle)
  • Includes the stock BMW saddles, in the Corbin box
  • Cylinder head guards
  • Michelin Pilot Road 2 Sport Touring tires
  • >> Front: new
  • >> Rear: pretty new, it has about 5,000 miles of tread left
  • The stock horn is loud; I always loved that
  • Everything works except the CD player
  • Includes the single best safety enhancement for the highway (IMHO): large rectangular blind spot mirrors — on highways you never have to turn your head aside
  • A few extras (helmets, gloves, gear) included

Maintenance: regular and by the book. All maintenance has been performed at the old Cal BMW Mountain View (where I bought it), and San Jose BMW until 2012. Since then it’s been to The UnDealership in Redwood City. I have most of the paperwork. Nobody else has maintained this bike, and it’s a solid runner, never any problems.

Price: $5,100 firm. If interested and you want to test ride it, bring $5,100 in cash and you can ride the bike while I hold your cash. If you drop it, you’ve bought it.

Some pics of my bike.

My longest ride, SF CA to STL MO and back. 2,100 miles each way. The bike was great, even in heavy downpours at freeway speeds. Funny to see the smarter riders who stopped beneath overpasses and waited until it stopped, while I pressed on. Iíve also ridden in snow but thatís another story...

Welcome to Utah

Welcome to Wyoming

The continental divide on I-80 in Wyoming; the one at the Tipton Station Road exit (on the right) near Wamsutter

Welcome to Nebraska; it rained all night as I crossed the state; in the morning I stopped at the Harley dealership in Lincoln NE and bought some Gore Tex gloves

Welcome to Iowa; finally some dry weather

Welcome to Missouri, the Show Me state

Exploring in and around STL MO while working there 2 weeks

Welcome to Kansas, Toto; heading back after 2 weeks in STL

Welcome to Oklahoma, the sun is setting; at night, northeast of Tulsa, the severest rains and also the nearest lightning strikes Iíve ever ridden in; the lightning caused temporary night blindness; an interesting ride, fortunately I-44 there had few curves

Welcome to Texas

Welcome to New Mexico; Gallup after midnight is an interesting place...

Welcome to Arizona; hello sunrise, here comes the sun (and I say, itís alright)

A favorite road sign: Grand Canyon, South Rim turn left, North Rim turn right

My wife's first time to see the Grand Canyon (itís a story, youíll have to ask her...)

Oh man, a bike thread like this touches my heart. I hope it goes to someone who treats it as well as you did and takes it on many more adventures!

I just ran a CycleVIN report on my bike. The pdf was too large to attach so I posted pics of it to imgur.

If you want the pdf, DM your email.

Thanks Robert. Good idea. I will ask the buyer to send me pics of the adventures s/he takes it on. If theyíre comfortable with that, those would be great to see.

We recently took what may be our final 2-up ride.
From home in the south bay.
To Santa Cruz for lunch.
Up the coast on Hwy 1.
To The City for dinner.
Over the GG Bridge to take in the nice view on the sunny day.

Out of curiosity, what do you use that yellow cord for (coming out of your helmet)?

Itís a bit of a hack and it keeps the face shield cracked open.

Roy is being cautious and waiting for the check to clear, but just to let you know, I'm buying this, so all you lookee-loos can just move along.

Not to say the bike isn't necessarily still for sale, but the price went up dramatically

Good point, @mjj. I marked the OP as sale pending.

Roy, your bike is going to a top bloke (as the British would say). Mark will keep those moto adventures coming - hopefully some of them with me! 👍
