View Full Version : '99 BMW R1100S

November 15th, 2006, 01:00 AM
Folks, with bittersweet feelings I am officially putting Emma up for sale. Reason you ask? Well, this was my first BMW and I've really enjoyed her. However, I've always been a bike whore and just feel like trying a GS or a LT for awhile. Unfortunately, as understanding as she is, the wife says 4 bikes at any one time is my limit. I just can't see having 2 street bikes, and neither can she...

This one is a sweet rider. If you want a no-hassles bike that is setup for miles of smiles, look no further. Clear Texas tile in hand. $7000 cash, or trade towards BMW LT or GS. Located about 20 minutes east of Downtown Dallas, just off I20. Might deliver for gas money. Call me and let's talk. 972.979.3207 anytime, or email bmw@motolobo.com.

Motorcycle Online review of the 1999 R1100S:

DropBears specs:

This is an absolutely lovely bike with slick black paint, a gorgeous single sided swing arm with integrated shaft drive, and just the right touch of class. Very versatile Sport Touring machine with over $3,000 in accessories and upgrades! Folks who know me know how I treat my bikes, ask around. Full 12,000 mile service was performed by BMW of North Dallas just this year, and the first owner was a tech there. Never down.

I bought her with around 8,000 showing and am right just under 15,300 now (still riding). I've added pretty much everything except for the peg lowering brackets, Remus system, and Throttlemeister. Fast enough to get you in trouble, comfortable enough to ride all day. Plenty of storage in the hard bags for multi-day trips, and carries a widescreen laptop with ease. Commuted often, ran a flawless IronButt SaddleSore 1000 in January 2006, and the 2005 Texas Two Step rally.

Great condition. Looks perfect from 5 feet or less, very small imperfections from 15k miles of riding under close examination. Rode up to the BMW shop this week to look at a GS and had two folks comment on how clean she is. Needs nothing but a good home.

Kelly Blue Books shows $6,970 as "retail" and $4,745 "trade-in" for "good condition and allows for 34,500 miles. NADA shows $6,625 "average retail" bone stock (without $1200 exhaust, $700 bags, etc). Cycle Trader lists 6 R1100SA bikes, ranging from 4,700 to 18,270 miles and $7599 to $11,999 in price. Non-ABS models seem to range from $6,450 to $12,500. Only one in Texas is listed at $7,295. None are as loaded as this fine example.
