For Sale 2014 DL650
« on: June 25, 2020, 13:58:30 »
I Haven't been active for a while and this is why. It is with great sadness that my 650 Vstrom is up for sale.Due to arthritis I can no longer tour with my wife as 50 miles or so is about it. so it's a waste having it sat in the Garage. It has service history, Hepco Becker Panniers (with QD frames)and a Suzuki Topbox. Givi Tank bag, centre stand, heated grips, belly pan, hand guards, Givi Airflow scree (plus standard), PD mini oiler and mirror extenders. New chain and sprockets, tyres are OK, MOT until Feb 2021. Suspension linkage has just been pulled apart and greased. Front brake fluid changed and that's about it. 13,400 miles. Located in Shropshire. Thanks for looking £3,900

Thanks. It's quite depressing coming to terms with the end of a 40 year era for both of us to be honest. Still - onwards and upwards and when it's sold I fancy a Honda Grom for short, local lane runs!

Good luck with the sale, it looks like a really nicely kept bike.
Look at the clock and the calendar.
It'll never be now again.
So just get out and do it.
As fast as you possibly can.

Well, it's sad that it has to go but, at least it's new owner will enjoy it, you will still have two wheels and some money for when the pubs open. The new owner will be buying a fantastic bike with all the bits you need (or want) fitted already. IMHO the price is very cheap too. I don't think your bike will be for sale long before someone snaps it up.  :thumb:

It's looking like ebay I'm afraid which means some halfwit tyre kickers and stupid offers but needs must. Shame Wales is on lockdown still which may limit the market given where I live. Not going to give it away though as I can still ride a few miles! The kind comments have been very much appreciated

I find it hard to believe that your bike has not sold yet. I was a member of THE UKGSER forum for many years, before I bought my Suzuki, which is almost identical to yours, including accessories.

The BMW forum was very active and there were always good bikes (like yours) for sale by members. I think it was £10/£12 per year subscription. It may be an idea to join and advertise your bike there and cheaper than ebay.

I'm guessing the BMW forum members wouldn't mind if you joined their party with such a good offer of introduction. I bought and sold on the forum many times when I was a member and always dealt with genuine bikers. GLWS.  :thumb:

I am still a paid up member on UKGSER and will happily put it in their ‘spotted a deal’ section if you wish?

That's very kind - I have someone coming today who doesn't sound like a tyre kicker so we'll see what happens first. First prize at the moment is the fellow who wanted to give me £3300 providing I arranged a Courier to deliver it to him!
