    Hopefully the posting of this will offend no one - it's vaguely SOB
    relevant.

    To facilitate the upkeep of a bevy of SOB's and probably the purchase of
    more, my Classic Triumph resurrecting compatriot is selling his glorious BMW
    K1100 M32 RTO. He bought it new in August 1994, it's done all of 5934 miles
    and has every conceivable extra, including (probably) a Jacuzzi, photon
    torpedoes and a replicator for those Star trek munchie moments.

    If anyone out there has any interest in spending around £7K on something
    like this, hold 'yer hand up and I can furnish the full spec.

    Ah Thankyewww.

    Thanks for the quick feedback Steve. We both may well be mad - the truth is
    we have no idea what the damn thing's worth but I guess there will be those
    who have an opinion and may be able to help us nearer to nailing the right
    figure. We just want rid and the dosh to spend on more worthy projects. Plus
    the fact it lives in the heated garage WE should be working in and it'll be
    winter all too soon.

    If someone wants to add their tenpenn'th with the benefit of a clearer
    picture, the full spec is as follows:

    BMW K1100 LT SE (M32 RTO)
    Gunmetal Metallic - Aug 1994 LE No.1061 5934 miles
    ABS
    Spy Ball Alarm
    Data tag
    Pannier and Top Box
    BMW pannier bags(x3)
    Tank Bag
    Electric Screen
    Heated Grips
    Clarion Stereo

    take a look at www.biketrader.co.uk and find similar ones. Currently the latest K1200RS's
    are going for around the figure you quoted for your 9 year old K11 ... wish I had the
    spare pennies as I'd like to make a bid myself but .... all my pennies go into a special
    savings account called the CSA .... grrrr ;o)

    Every one seems to be in about the same area ...... feedback much
    appreciated.

    Thanks for the nudge about the reg Timo - that's me not being careful with
    copy and paste of text.

    Roger.

    Would you mind sticking a picture or five of your 75 on the web so I
    can order a set of numberplates for it and stick 'em on mine?

    Except when said gunge was kindly cleaned off, on the last French Run,
    and his number plate polished until it would show up on a satellite
    picture....

    Ahem

    Actually, I couldn't tell the difference before and after on that
    occasion.

    The *real* clean was performed by me at the side of the road, using a
    grubby tissue, under the supervision of a severly unimpressed member
    of Northamptonshire constabulary.

    Thanks for the feedback all, regarding value of the BMW.
    It'll get sold eventually and hopefully nearer the upper end of your
    suggested ranges - luckily there's no panic for the garage space yet.

    Picture is at: <http://www.rogergroves.f2s.com/bmw.jpg> for reference if
    anyone is interested.

    Roger.
