Selling my beloved clean-titled 2008 Concours ABS. This bike is in virtually pristine condition. Hardly a scratch. Comes with the panniers, Oxford heated grips, 2 windshields (OEM standard and OEM larger windscreen), two OEM seats --one of which is brand new, and handlebar risers and hardware (currently removed), and of course the throttle lock for cursing down the highway.
This bike is not for the faint of heart. Its 150+hp motor is a go-fast-I-hope-you-can-afford-a-speeding-ticket sport tourer that handles with sharp precision. It runs strong with a smooth shifting drive shaft that gets you out of harms way even lugging it around in 6th gear.
The bike has been a 100% long distance commuter bike ridden nearly daily. This bike has never been dropped or crashed--no driveway tip overs, nothing! It has been maintained meticulously. In the last 1,000 miles, I have checked and adjusted valves per spec, changed oil/filter with Mobil 4t Full Synthetic (regularly changed at factory interval of 5k), changed final drive oil (changed with engine oil every time), installed new iridium spark plugs, fresh coolant, fresh brake and clutch fluid, new Michelin Pilot Road 4 GT tires, lubed the spline with every tire change, washed the fairings inside and out, new air filter.
This is a rocket ship: it is fast, handling is sharp, shifts and cruises smooths, accelerates faster than you can imagine and stops on a dime with its powerful ABS brakes. I bought this locally from the original owner, a BARFer, with the intent to travel cross country on it but I have an emotional attachment to my 30 year old BMW K100RT that I've had for years.
These motors are known to run for 200K miles and beyond. With its on-the-fly electronically adjustable windscreen you can stay warm and comfortable or allow the fresh air fill the cabin space with the screen lowered. The panniers can fit two helmets amongst other gear and things. There is a rear passenger seat rest that elevates for passenger comfort and safety or lays flat for riding solo or packing your gear on top.
This is the ultimate bike. Well cared for, owned by two responsible adults who are 50+ years old ridden daily in the Bay Area.
Asking $6,350 due to the recent major service and overall including a fresh set of tires ready for another 8-10K miles. This bike will get you there, back, and again. I am open to reasonable offers but cash in hand to test ride it. I guarantee if you test ride this bike you will come back with a smile ready to take it home.
Located in Pleasant Hill and available any time. Feel free to call/text/email with any questions or to come by and see it for yourself.
