Malthound Posted January 18, 2013 Share Posted January 18, 2013 Hi Fellas, Ok, after saving my pennies, cajoling the SO, and watching Craigslist obsessively, it looks like I may have found the bike I've been looking for. I had made the decision that I was going to wait until I found the 'perfect' 2004 R1150RT and buy it without delay. I may have found it with one caveat: 63k miles, and he's done all his own maintenance. The seller is asking 5200.00 for a bike that is bone-stock and pristine. He claims most the miles have been commuting miles (California) and it has always been garage-kept. All the pics I'm seeing give me no reason to believe there's anything badly wrong with it, save for a cross-threaded cowling bolt on the lower right side. So, the question: Since he's done all his own maintenance, what should I be looking for when I go see it? (It's about a 150 mile drive each way). I want to make sure he has done everything that needs to be done as well as spot any red flags that could indicated poor care. Bonus question: Thoughts on the price? As always, thanks Jeff.
