Sold. My trusty R1150GS sold in fall 2008 in Vancouver, BC. This blog is now closed.
A virtual log of various things to do with my 2001 Silver BMW R1150GS motorcycle.
I bought a new bike, so I have a new blog. My new 2007 BMW R1200GS Adventure (in Alpine White) is chronicled over here: r1200gsadv.blogspot.com
*** SOLD ***
|Colour:||Titan Silver Metallic|
|Price:||CDN$10,900 ... or best offer... Willing to deal.|
As mentioned in the previous post, here's the HP2. It's a big bike by any measure, except perhaps weight (considering it's class.) The engine is twin-cylinder 1200cc (approx.) and it's rated at 105 hp and 85 lb-ft of torque. Seat height is 'high' (I forget how high.)
What more is there to say? This is the start of the new generation of K bikes from BMW. It's rated at 167 hp and compares against other open class sportbikes. Electronics out the wazoo: ABS, ESA, XYZ and PDQ.
Well, well.... Here's the beast. I really like the new K1200 series and this is my favourite variant that's available in Canada. The Roadster (K1200R) is a naked version of the K1200S with 163 hp in a four-cylinder 1200 cc engine.
Yesterday I mentioned the BMW F800ST and how I am developing a slight preference for the F800S, this bike. Since I would only consider this as a second bike, not a primary bike, I feel I have sport-touring end covered with my R1150GS.
Well, another year and another motorcycle show. This year we went on Friday evening and it was the right choice. The crowds were much less and we saw everything we wanted to see in only 2.5 hours without rushing around. My buddy Rob and I left work in Burnaby at 5:30 and arrived at the Trade Ex at Abottsford Airport around 6:30 PM. (Hurray for carpool lanes!)
For Giftmas I got a pair of Optilux 1450 Fog Lights. These are made by Hella, but are much less expensive. Lordco (a local auto-supply chain) had them on sale for $50 before Christmas. The kit comes with bulbs, metal housings, brackets, wire, connectors, a lighted switch and the relay.
