How much did the lights cost and how did you wire it? DIY?
Those lights were for 7K a piece along with the wiring, switch and relay. Did everything DIY, wiring, mounting etc.

Chanced upon this thread and went back in time looking at all those pics from around UK. Spend 8 years of schooling days at Dehradun (Col Brown), often frequenting these space on outing/trekking trips.
Recently happened to ride along with a 2015 GS to Hampi from Bangalore and what an incredible bike it is. Totally smitten by its capabilities. definitely on the bucket list. Planning to begin with a Versys 650 given the budget limitations. wishing you all the best and many memorable rides. Sharing a pic.

And what a statement it was.
Seems that with time situation changes and thinking changes and the kid in us changes.

So the bike is up for sale. I haven't given thought to what I will buy next. I bet its going to be the same way this one happened. I'll go to buy one and buy another. Haha

Don't want to let it go but the current work limits my riding. Or maybe these are just excuses and I need a new toy.

Oh thats sad to see it go Navpreet!

The 2012 is indeed among the best model years of the Twin-cam Hexhead 1200GS models to buy & own as all the previous niggles where straightened out by BMW by that time making it a trouble free bike. And given your meticulous care, I am sure its a keeper for who ever is buying this black beauty.

Good luck with the sale and your next purchase
