I personally only know of one other Special Edition in Ireland although I'm sure there must be a couple more. There's a few in the UK and the USA.

And yes, they we're one of the last batch of 1150's made before the R1200 came along.

The million dollar question.

I'm a bit weedy at 5' 8" and thats the main reason for selling the GSA. What to go for next? Going to try the KTM 990 Adventure and maybe the new KTM 990 SM-T. I can see myself going for a compromise - a 990 Adv with 19"/17" wheels (stock are 21"/18") and street tires.

Supposed to be good bikes alright but read (on the UKGSer forum) that the build quality is not up to scratch.

Sat on one before and it felt like there wasn't much in front of me, but then again on the GSA I have a 30L tank in front of me so anything would be small.....

I'll give it a go though - be foolish not to test everything I can. Might even give an FJR a blast. Lovely looking bikes.

do yourself a favour though and post the pix of the bike you are selling. when it stops raining. Ie, put it back together as for sale. No one has the extra money to kit out these bikes. buyer will just end up going to you to get the rest of it anyway.

You should also put up a 'total price' that will include all the extras.

I suspect your upgrading and keeping the extras!!! That's what I did!

Why you selling? Rr1150gsa is THE one to have. ALL other boxer engines are lesser equals! Bring on the abuse about the 12 being better...if you don't like the colour I'll swap you mine! Mine prob runs better though.

Right finally got out and took a couple of photos while it's a bit dry.

As for a price including all the accessories, it would be €9500. For the extra €1500 above the base price you get: custom low saddle with rider and pillion gel inserts, Al Jesse (from USA) quick release panniers, Migsel GPS mount, 20mm lower Wilbers shocks (about 1000 miles on them), Touratech headlight grill, White Baglux tank cover (not fitted), Trailtech Veypor computer, K1200RS Mirrors, Carbon fibre hugger (not fitted), GMTMoto spotlight mounts with Hella FF50 HID spots, HID fogs & mounting brackets, Migsel low footpegs & Springs, Touratech gear lever extender, Touratech Neoprane fork protectors (not fitted).

I'll try and get better photos over the weekend.

A bump for you. All the photos are of the same side/angle.Maybe an idea to show some without the panniers and the rest of the parts that are not included in the sale.Are you sure you dont want a trade

Yeah have my heart set on a KTM 990 at the minute although I did go and buy a Sargent low seat for the GSA and a tank bag for the bagster tank cover (which I must fit) on Saturday.

At least my arse will be extra comfy until it sells.....

I'll try and get out this evening to take a few more photos.
