Dear Friend we are in the same boat, still have my R1150r... I still like the bike but after test riding a Gunner I had to have a Vic.. Crazy really but what to do ??? Now I must take great care getting all the wheels in my small garage... : ( So, do you know anyone in the market for a R1150r ? Fancy is a 2002 model and just turned 8K miles... Jim

I got off my "R" due to my hips & knees...just can't sit in that 'tight' position anymore for longer periods of time. Same with the "K". Checked out a cruiser & decided on the Vic. Been curious about them for awhile now.

BMW is much more popular on your end of the country...w/only 8K it should sell easily...I would think. Here in the Mid-West is HD country, as such mine might take some time. As I said it is an "04" w/33000 ABS & a few extras...Sargent seat, system bags,...that sort of thing.
I'm thinking of listing it for $6500 ? My "K" bike is a "project bike" I have it listed for about half that.

I also did the same thing. Rode a r1100rt for 15years as my main bike, but my knees are older now and I would have to stand up on the pegs to stretch after an hour in the saddle. Picked up a 2010 cross roads and love it. Huge room. Good luck with yours.

Thank you... My Beamer is going to look for another home, no need to let her sit and gather spiders.... Jim
