Well, can’t believe I’m doing this, but all those plans you make, often life happens to alter them. Bought my beautiful bike from San Jose BMW, and they’re awesome and were great to deal with. I did get it with the Nav V at the time! It came with the low seat, was not comfortable with my 5’11” body, so found a very nice Sargent seat with backrest for $750, and with the addition of a Air Hawk pad, was able to do a 2700 mile trip in April of 2017 and 1800 miles on October of the same year. Did purchase it with the 7 year extended warranty! Bought RDL’s sump plug, very nice! Also got the GS-911WIFI diagnostic tool at $399, so nice to reset oil change light. My routine always was to change oil and filter every 4000 miles max, instead of 6000 miles. But hears a good part for the lucky buyer, it only has a bit over 10,000 miles!

I treated myself to this flagship because I deserved it, and thought I’d have it to the end. But work and a great woman had me moving to Bullhead City AZ last year, and due to the usually high temps, I haven’t put 500 miles on it. Now I’ve become a river rat with 4 WaveRunners and a Ultra Custom 21 Stealth boat! My toys have changed, and I hate to my bike sitting there.

I bought the screen to protect oil cooler, a short shifter kit, and a cool ‘6’ emblem that fits that odd mounting tab under the license plate, all from members of the forum here! Oh, I also got an upgraded windshield, but not home right now to give the manufacturer.

I’m asking $19K for it, sure want it to go to a good home so someone can know what we K1600 riders have learned about how spectacular these bikes feel under you!

I’ll attach pics by Wednesday when I’m back in town. Of course the trunk and panniers have the included luggage! Any questions, feel free, spread the word, make me an offer, time for my baby to have a new home!

If you still have the stock low seat and are interested in selling it separately, please shoot me a PM.
TIA

I considered selling it, but that was before my decision to sell the bike. I’ll let the new owner decide if he or she wants to sell it or make it a custom RDL! Thanks for the offer.

Bike still for sale, won’t sell seat separate unless I decide to keep the bike, the GS-911WIFI will go with the bike wherever it goes!

Here’s a few more pics! I’m a motivated seller, need to balance out my finances.

Also, wife and I are going to give it a last blast by doing a week vacation on it starting next Monday. Gonna leave Bullhead City, head to Reno. Next day we’ll head to Brookings OR, spend a couple days there, do some salmon fishing. Then it’s on to San Jose, where they have an awesome watering hole with live entertainment called Quarter Note!! Then we’ll head further south to Taft, where my wife lived most her life and visit several close friends. I have s good buddy I went to high school with who lives in Ventura, so May take the 33 to have lunch with him. Then we’ll head home to Bullhead! My last fling on this beautiful bike.

Hope my K1600 finds a good home!

Terry

Back from our Bullhead City-Brookings OR-Taft 2155 mile vacation road trip! Great time, beautiful scenery, had a great time!

Now ready to change fluids and get it cleaned up for a new owner. A couple of you have asked about it, and it’s time for me to let it go. Contact me with any questions. It now has about 12,500 miles, and looking good!

A few pics from our trip:

We had a great time!

And now as a bump, I’m dropping price to $18000!

Oil is changed, all cleaned up, a little over 12000 miles, and won’t be putting many more miles on her, so let me know who out there wants a great deal on a beautiful bike!!

Remember, comes with the Extended 7 year warranty, good till 2023, and the GS-911WIFI tool!!

Thanks in advance!!

****UPDATE****
****PRICE REDUCTION****

**** $16,500 ****

Yep, same beautiful 2016 GTL Exclusive, just became the best deal you’ll find! I refuse to grow up, well, there you have it, will never happen. But, at 69, I decided to buy my oldest sons CRF450R MX bike, and 27 years since I rode a dirt bike, take it out on an motocross track and some Arizona single track for some fun! Less than an hour later, 3 broken ribs, a collapsed lung and a helicopter ride to Las Vegas, guess it wasn’t the smartest thing I’ve done. This has caused, as can be imagined, some financial implications! I’m fine, been a month, feeling great, but needing to sell the GTL-E to help ends meet.

No change at all on the BMW, haven’t ridden her since the wife and I returned from our 2000+ mile trip last year! So, time to act on this is now, this is the best price on a very low miles 2016!!

Thanks, talk to you soon!!

That is a great deal for someone and could involve a nice cross country ride home for us in the southeast that are just getting into our riding season... Good luck !! I still love my 2012 too much to part with her...
