I am thinking of buying a bmw 1150gs, 2001 model with 48000km on the clock! Would this be a wise decision?  Apparently its got a service record etc. Will have a look at the bike this coming weekend!

It would be a wise decision indeed!
Minor points depend on it, mileage, service hist, accident hist, price etc?
