From http://www.bmwarchiv.de/vin/bmw-vin-decoder.html it appears to be a standard GS.

I take that back. They referred to my GSA as a "GS".

Standard... The GSA has purple-ish wheels, valve covers, factory crash bars with BMW fog lights, purple-ish frt forks, non chrome center shock and a big-ass gas tank

here it is....
 
if it is an Adventure, someone went to great pains to remove all the ADV stuff and make it into a standard.

07/2003 R21 R 1150 GS 00 (0415,0495) USA

So GS, not GSA.

Source: realoem.com (use the last 7 characters of the VIN = serial number).

Fuel Tank
 
I am no expert, but the fuel tank looks just like the one on my 2000 GS. Right down to the decals. May want to be careful this bike may have been pieced together or repaired. :wink:

seat and rear subframe are GS also.

Looks like it has GSA fork tubes?

Dan Alexander 01-16-2013 06:06 AM

Rear fender is grey like the front fender, gas tank is yellow.

Probably was a grey bike and had the gas tank changed for some reason.

Still looks clean but too expensive :deal

< 52k miles is low miles? Not as advertised (not GSA). Seems overpriced (to me) for either GS or GSA.

But yes, it looks clean!

Just now:

This listing was ended by the seller because the item is no longer available:huh

I know it no longer matters, but the term GSA actually refers to GS with ABS. A GS Adventure may or may not be a GSA, depending on if it has ABS or not.

Jim, I understand, but I think people know when I was saying GSA, I was saying R1150 Gelände/Straße Adventure.

If you did not, my most sincere apologies. :D

The advert did say R1150 GS Adventure.

No problem, I wasn't confused. I was just saying that the term is often improperly used, and that BMW uses the term GSA to mean GS with ABS. This sometimes confuses people when placing an add. I didn't see the add.

Thanks,
