For sale to a discerning owner as I’m getting too old and frail to manoeuvre the old girl around while parking etc.
She’s not any heavier than any other 1100 RS but she’s heavier than the F800ST I’ve bought to replace her.

Two owners from new and mine since 2002.
New MoT included if required, current one is good until July 2010. The tyres are fairly new (less than 1000 miles) she was serviced by me this Summer (June).
She comes with my 3 months warranty, which covers major unexpected component failures but excludes normal wear and tear.
Included are the original BMW panniers, the BMW baggage porter and BMW tool kit.

Many good modifications (see pictures).

The 1100 is a joy to drive with enormous torque through the 5 speed gearbox, ABS fitted as standard (and it’s not the ABS unit which breaks), the brake lines are stainless Aeroquip aviation lines and the trouble-some (mechanical) front brake-light switch has been replaced with an hydraulic one.

Motorway cruising is effortless even two up with luggage, the windshield is easy to adjust while riding.
Oxford heated grips are fitted and I've never had to set them higher than 50%.  The riders seat has three height positions and there's a useful wee lockable stowage space behind the rear seat.

I've modified the wiring to allow the engine to continue running even with the side-stand down UNLESS the bike is in gear (same as the 1150's). There's a side-stand switch by-pass switch in case the side-stand switch fails (happens sometimes).
The fuel lines are fitted with quick-couplings as per the 1150's.
The centre-stand has been modified to lift the bike less high and it's as easy as an R850 to put onto the stand now.
The passenger grab-rail has been replaced with the BMW "baggage porter" which is a handy messages type rack.  Where sensible, the BMW steel fasteners throughout the bike have been replaced with 316 grade stainless Allen bolts, the rear sub-frame has been powder-coated and there is no corrosion.
The front tyre is a Michelin Road Pilot 3 which has done about 500 miles, the rear is a matching item 300 miles older.
The defunct Lambda probe wiring harness connector has been re-positioned to allow easy access to it with a view to using the ECU terminals to modify the standard Bosch fuel map.  These bikes, as standard, don't have Lambda probes but there is a Co setting potentiometer, my "proposed" mod would allow the changing of the fuel map while the bike is being ridden.
She’s bike has been serviced regularly by me using Millers CFS 10w50 engine oil and Millers EE75w90 fully synthetic Nanodrive gear oil in the gearbox and bevel box.
These bikes enjoys the BMW anti-dive tele lever front suspension and the anti-squat paralever rear suspension. The rear shocker damping has been modified by me to give better rebound damping. The bike is not the cheapest around, but the price reflects the bikes' condition.
