2011 BMW R1200GS

Tallahassee, Florida

Take ownership of 2011 BMW R1200GS

With only 1,409 miles on the bike (original purchase September 27, 2011), my brother and I trailered it from Waterbury, VT to Tallahassee.

Over the next six days, I rode 2,700 miles to Santa Rosa, CA.

En route, added 1/2 quart of 20W50 oil (to bring from bottom to top of oil sight glass.)

Upon arrival in California, with 4,100 miles on the odometer, I noticed oil leakage along engine-transmission housing interfaces. Oil has also collected in skid plate. I suspect a rear main seal leak.
