Welcome Peak

Great looking bike Peak.
I got my Mandarin '02 1150 about two months ago. It's my favorite bike yet. Like it better than I did my Super Tenere.

Why not make your own? Got to your home center and get a 2' length of lightweight 3" pvc pipe. Glue on a cheap end cap and get an Oatey testing plug. It just pops into the end of the pipe and uses a...

2002 r1150gs

Wow..this looks like the one I just bought. I love it.
If you strip it down, let me know. I could use some parts. :D
I love KTM's too. But I like my GS better than my Tenere.
Go for it.

What to buy??

I previously owned a 2013 Tenere and now own an 2002 R1150GS. I'd have a newer GS or a KTM 1190 Adv if funds for that type of purchase were available.
The Tenere is a nice bike, but not a great...

How are you ST owners liking the Yamaha panniers?
They are a little pricey compared to some others but, I'll get a good $ break on them if I buy with the bike.
