What's the old girl worth?
I hate being one of those that joins a list and immediately just asks for advice, but that's what I need (and maybe someone here would be interested anyway - what better place?). So, I have a 1999 K1200LT bought in Dec. 99. Only owner. Now, please don't chastise me for the low mileage, but the bike has just over 20K miles on. Since the mileage is so low, I've done really nothing major (like final drive or anything). Just routine maintenance. It's been tipped, but never crashed, and is in great shape. Sure, it needs oil and fluid changes. Tires are OK, though probably about 5 years old. I'd have no hesitation to take this thing on a long ride. I just don't ride it anymore. Bought with two up in mind, but my wife really just doesn't ride with me. I have other bikes I ride (BMW, KTM), and am thinking about a new 1200GS.
So, wondering what this thing is worth. I suppose I could get a lot more just parting it out, but that would be a travesty, parting out such a nice bike. I don't believe there's anything not working on it. About the only thing I added are some PIAA lights unobtrusively mounted under fairing, and a (can't recall brand name) shelf above dash to hold GPS/radar detector. Also I have an Aeroflow headlight guard on it.
I don't recall even what was an option at the time I bought it, but it has a CD changer. Would anyone even care about that anymore?
All paint is in beautiful condition.
Thanks for reading and any advice. And if you're interested, lemme know! :-)
