Whip, is it really that pristine? Those pictures look photoshopped to me. Not one spec of dust on anything. Looks like you got a really nice one. Being an 04, you may still want to change out the rubber brake lines. They deteriorate with age, not miles. And usually from the inside out... so don't trust the external view. Congrats!

Beautiful bike and likely much less maintenance and more dependable than a new one as long as you wash it once in awhile as Pat suggests the older GS's require. grin

Did you buy that from second wind BMW? I live near there and go there often, one of the employees was selling it. By the way, they sold the shop.

Nope, that one was very nice, but it had 22,000 miles on it.

This was purchased in South Texas off Craigslist.

Not even broke in yet! Definitely looks like its in less than 4k miles condition. Another plus is not needing a computer or special bmw only tools to work on it. Congrats!

Nice find. I'd pay extra for one in that condition.
