Wny don't you post your photos here? Also include here salient info about the bike. How many miles on it? What color is it? What accessorie are on it? Does it have a BMW top case? How many miles on the tires? Does it have aftermarket saddles? If it does, who made them? Tell us anthing you know about it.

Just "It's in good shape" tells someone who might be interested nothing.

And have a great day.

Re: My 2008 BMW R1200RT

Dear all:

Seems like the pictures will go thru. I am in need of some funds as life as thrown a curve ball and I need to sell my BMW R1200RT.
Attached are a few pictures. Bike is in very good shape, transmission etc.
Its a 2008 BMW R1200RT with 53.400.00 miles on it.
I am located in Canada and willing to assist with the transportation/paperwork to the US if need be.
Please holler at me if interested. Thank you kindly.

Best regards,

What accessories are on it? Does it have BMW saddlebags? Does it have a BMW top case? How many miles on the tires? Does it have aftermarket saddles? If it does, who made them?

So what Jeff is suggesting is that you provide as much detail as possible. EVERYTHING anyone would ask is best to provide up front. That will help folks understand the condition and history of the bike. Here is an example of the ad I used when I sold my 2006 RT back in 2016. It may help you understand the type if information a prospective buyer might want and what we are suggesting.

Re: My 2008 BMW R1200RT

Looks like my bike. If you want to sell it, it would be helpful to post some details about what comes with it as Jeff suggests, but you also need to say where it is (Canada is pretty big) and what you are looking for a price.

I'm not sure how easy it is to import a bike from Canada to the US if it was never sold here in the first place. I'm sure other folks may know more than me and can chime in.
