Unfortunately, my 2004 R1150 GS Adventure was written off during my 2009 tour, thanks to an 18 year old with a 17 day old driver's licence who ran into the back of me while I was stopped in traffic. The idiot was on his cell phone on that all so important call. Cell phone users - get a life!

But my 2004 R1150 GS Adventure got replaced with something much nicer...an ultra mint, low mileage 1995 Porsche Carrera 2 (993) in Speed Yellow.
