Standard BMW R1200GSA Adventure for sale.  The one with crash bars, wire wheels, huge tank and big screen.

This was previously owned by Metal Mule who manufacture probably the best pannier systems in the world. The fitted 2x45 litre units easily swallow several shopping trolley loads of shopping or camping equipment for a tour of Europe (or beyond).  Fully waterproof, vandal resistant and easily put on or taken off.  To balance the panniers, Metal Mule fit a raughty sounding Scorpion exhaust with removeable baffle.  Also has Bark Buster hand guards, BMW spotlights, hugger, additional 12V supply and full colour coded Baglux system and tank bag. Heated grips and ABS servo brakes as standard.  Standard exhaust and handguards available if wanted.

Satnav is a car Tom Tom and is not included in the sale, nor the holder, but only cost £25, as it has all of my favourites preprogrammed.  Charging socket (1 of 2 is included)

This thing handles better than any sportsbike I've ridden.  It will do over 350 miles easily on a tank, and nearer 450 if driven gently with full luggage.  And has spare fuel as well on rear of pannier - included. I have done many 500mile plus trips.  Best was Kent to Alicante overnight.

It is not the fastest thing around, but will keep up with most else and in superb comfort.  It devours motorways and ignores potholes and bad roads.  The weather protection is superb and engine powered leg warmers!  You will not normally want to go faster.  I had a Blackbird before and do not miss the power. It will cruise at over 100mph if required and allowed. It sounds gorgeous on overrun or full chat, but you can put the baffle back in.

It is big and not for the weak hearted.  But makes me smile whenever I ride it. I'm just under 6ft.

It has been fully serviced by BMW approved garage.  Had new driveshafts, recent discs and pads, recent rear tyre.  Front tyre okay but will need replacing soon. There is a slight vibration on braking from front which BMW have been unable to diagnose, but I have lived with it for 3 years and passes MOT fine.

I fancy a change after 6 years. May consider selling without the Metal Mules or selling Mules separately.  They retail at over £1200.

I will pillion any one interested in buying, but no test rides without leaving equivalent deposit please.
