Hello and welcome to the auction for my BMW f650st
Before we start, a few things you should no...... I have been on ebay for many years now and have built up a feedback score i can be proud of, I would like to keep it that way!
I have been 'had over' once and belive me it will not be happening again, so if your new to ebay, please contact me before you bid. I am an honest ebayer, and will always do everything I can to list accurately.
With that in mind, We'll start with the not so good bits.....that way you won't get all excited reading through and ignore them when ive hidden them at the end.....
Ok, so its not a new bike, its covered a little over 35000 miles, and in places signs of this can be seen, for example, there is some pitting on the wheels (lots of little black dots) and some paint flakes on the engine (pics 10 and 12) there is a rub hole in the rear mud guard, and the paint is not as true as it was when it rolled out of the showroom, there are the odd little marks you might expect from a bike of this age but not many, and it has certainly never been dropped.
However, none of the above affects the actual running order of this lovely little bike, it was and at the moment still is my first ever road going bike, we have covered many happy miles together, and I wish I had covered more, the bike certainly wants too. It has been looked after like a new born child by every owner including my self. The paper work has been passed from one owner to the next through the years (pic 9 ) and has built up a good picture of its history, it even has the origional tool kit. The bike has been BMW serviced and the service book has been BMW stamped from new to 35254 miles. It has just sailed through a full Mot, and was a real dream to ride to and from the garage! The tyres are good, nearly new according to the mot man, there are no leeks, squeeks, or knocks, everything works as it should, including the heated grips, fog lamps and suspension adjuster.
I have read on ebay, and in other places, that these bikes suit shorter riders, this might be true, however being six foot three i wouldn't know i have always been very comfortable when ridding and as ive said we covered some very happy miles.
All the luggage is lockable, and the givi top box will easily hold a helmet. As you can see from the pics all the luggage is easily removable, but will come with the sale. I had to remove the hand guards for the mot but they too will be included.
I am at a loss as to what else to say, it really is a fantastic bike, I have used it as a commuter, and a tourer, and I can't tell you how sorry I will be to see her go, I am only selling due to a combination of finance trouble, (I'm poor) lack of space (my dad needs his garage back) and a change of circumstances (I have moved out of family home to start new job). Who ever wins this little gem will be delighted im sure.
I welcome viewings Sunday would be best, as i mentioned i have moved from my family home where the bike is stored, but will be back there on Sunday so please feel free to email and arrange.
All the usual ebay rules apply, you bid to buy, winning bidder will buy, and should make contact within 12hrs. Cash on collection only and as mentioned newbies or low feedbacks please email first. I am happy to have you take a look, and will answer any questions you might have as soon as i can.
Thanks for your time and happy bidding!
