Hi All,

NEIL - Wow the bike is looking great???

I’m putting my Red 2010 F650GS Twin on Trademe this Sunday so if you are interested give me a call before then to talk turkey. Rego expires late January and the WOF mid April. Tyres are Anakee 2s with a brand new front and the rear having done less than 2000kms. All services have been done at Motomart in Wellington and I have all receipts. She has just clicked over 71,000kms, a good portion of which have been on gravel roads and as with most dual purpose bikes that have done this many kms there is some ware and tare but she is still in very tidy condition. I’m the 1st owner and she was bought New Zealand new.
Standard items include;
·         Heated Grips
·         Tyre Pressure Sensor
·         3 Keys
·         Centre Stand
·         LED Indicators
·         On-board Computer
·         Switchable ABS Brakes
Extras include;
·         2Brothers Exhaust
·         K&N Air Filter
·         Scott Oiler
·         Tourotec Sump Guard
·         Barkbusters hand Guards
·         Givi Touring Screen
·         Givi Engine Protection Bars
·         Givi Top Box Bracket to suit all Monokey Top Boxes (Top Box not included)
·         BMW OEM Rear  Mud Guard Extension
·         Front Mug Guard Extension
·         SW-Motech Handle Bar Risers 20mm
·         Rectifier Protection Guard
·         Rear Brake Fluid Reservoir Guard
·         Side Stand Foot Extension
·         Headlight Protector
·         Radiator Guard
·         Haynes Workshop Manual
All the original bolts are included.
There is an Anakee 2 on the rear that has done around 2000ks and there is a TKC80 on the front that has a 1000ks left in it. I have a brand new Anakee for the front that I will throw in too.
This bike is well set up if you wish to get off the beaten track or explore the open road.
Check out photos here As I said earlier I will be putting her on Trademe this Sunday the 4th with the auction closing date being Sunday the 18th. I live at National Park and will be in Auckland from Saturday the 17th till Monday the 19th and I would be than happy to bring the bike with me for inspection and/or delivery at that time.
I will consider offers over $8490.00. If you are interested call me on 021 311 225.
Neil Wood.
