It's not my bike, but looked like a very solid bike at an attractive price.  Should fit the ST.N crowd nicely.

Anybody with the cash to get this guy?  I've emailed back and forth with the seller and it's in great shape.  It's been maintained at my favorite BMW shop (Gina's in Iowa City) and he's replaced it with a Tiger for different riding.

I'd buy it right now if it didn't have an inline 4 engine  Bigsmile

It's a great deal, and he can be talked down at least another $500.  It's mechanically immaculate.  I would honestly have purchased it already if it had a boxer motor  Embarassment

Nice bike, nice ad too.

But I have a hard and fast rule - any seller that uses keywords in their add that includes the names of other motorcycles gets black balled.

Can I ask why you feel that way? I'm thinking he /or her is just trying to get more exposure for the ad. I don't see a problem with that.

BTW I need to quit looking at this ad. The pool of drool is almost a foot deep. Drool

I find it annoying when searching for a particular bike to have to weed out others that pop up due to this tactic.  He is selling what he has to sell, not all the other bikes listed. Yes, I understand why the sellers do it.

From my viewpoint: If the seller doesn't care about causing others grief just to get more eyeballs on their ad then I don't trust them to represent the bike honestly.

I don't understand what the problem is.  All i see on the ad is a BMW K1200 for sale. Nothing else.

Bottom of ad, last line:
Quote
Keywords: k1200, k 1200 s, k 1200s, k1200r, r1200s, gsxr1300, blackbird, hyabusa, busa, zx1200, zx1400, zx14, zx12


It's used to cause this ad to show up if someone searches for ZX14 for example.
