Looking at purchasing a 2008 R1200GS.

A friend of a friend is selling his, here are the specks,

KarlB,

Thanks so much for the response. Yea, I did some more online digging and it didn't seem right. I emailed him and told him by concerns. He never wrote back, which surprised me because he seemed like a good guy. Initially he told me all about the bike and sent me a few pic's. But when I went to go look at it at the dealership (he was having a fuel strip replaced) I saw the scratches and took some pictures of the bike. I was surprised he didn't mention it to me initially because he seemed like he really took care of his bike and he wanted it to go to a "good home." Oh well, wasn't meant to be......maybe I'll just wait and get a new one.

Thanks again!
