Yeah those older aircooled models were prone to overheating. >:D

Seriously though, those fires are really ravaging you guys that side! So many lives and buildings lost. Again. Strongs for you guys!

There's one like that lying in Namibia somewhere, rather remote.
Fuelline became undone, only soil/sand available as fire extinguishing means, and this caused the rental bike to become, uh, well, rather undone  ???

From Buddhists to Sikhs, through Muslims and Christians and everything in between, there are many good people out there and if you do not allow yourself to be swayed by petulant religious opinion, the world is an awesome place with the odd idiot in between trying to make it rubbish for others.

Not mine, the pic was posted on FB today, apparently a Beemer found in an area ravaged by wildfires on our left coast.

There were numerous wildfires burning in northern Cali when I rode south to north up the left coast back in 18, this year has been even worse with Oregon and Washington added to the list of states ravaged by fire.

By the look of the shape of the centrestand that must be a 2004/05 1200 GS. Sad sight. :(

Fitting a Boosterplug to the one above will sort it out.  Will be as good as new again. The Boosterplug is apparently the cure all for all lean running, overheating motors.  :pot:

That's what I was trying to determine, I was leaning towards 1150 GS, could very well be a 1200.

The 1150 has a different shaped tele-lever.

Not much left to identify and it has an aftermarket exhaust system.
No oil cooler, sump melted away, heads are uncertain...
With no fuel tank remaining to be seen I would guess it is the 2004-2007 1200GS

Good lord, you guys had a 2004 1200.

If I recall correctly, the 1200 wasn't introduced here until model year 2006.

In 2006, we could buy a beautiful Final Edition blue/white 1150 GSA or 1200 GSA

"At its launch in 2004, the R1200GS was 30 kg (66 lb) lighter than the R1150GS it replaced,[5] and produced 100 bhp (75 kW), an increase of 19%. BMW continued to produce the R1150GS Adventure, releasing a final run-out special edition model,[6] before launching the R1200GS Adventure at the end of 2005, for the 2006 model year.[7]

Upgrades for model year 2008 included increased power to 78 kW (105 bhp), a new Integral ABS II anti-lock braking system was released without servo assistance and new options were added including electronic suspension adjustment (ESA) and the Automatic Stability Control (ASC) traction control system.[8][9]"

From Wikipedia

The 2008/2009 model was called a 'facelift", but the braking system was completely different as above.
The 2010 model came with DOHC heads.
