Bmw R1150 R

So I was tooling around today, and went to the local BMW dealership. They have a 2004 R1150R that they are asking $9500 for. It has ABS and only 2,111 miles. I looked on eBay, and you can't touch one of these for under $10,000 with that low of mileage. I was wondering if this sounds like a heck of a deal, or is there something I should know about this bike?

If the deal is too good to be true....
They redesigned their shaft LAST year. An owner told me it was sketcky in bad roads and motivated him to buy their new one, which he loves. What disapointed me about Rbikes "same robust design since 1923" is its antiquated Dry clutch (no slipping it for slow speed turn control) and Air Cooled. Their new Kbikes are modern and sweet!

I have had friends with that proven engine with over 60k miles on them so if you like that golf cart putt putt putt sound.... I think they look pretty cool though! And i know you can carve up a road with them ONCE you get used to umm darned paralever thingy...

If you ride it and like it that's what matters. I think that's a good deal. As far as the new models being better that's kind of like everything.

I know someone with the 1100 that has over 180k.
