It's a lot to take on right away, but as you all know the older a bike gets the less there seems to be available for it, and I would like to get it set up for a long term run in my fleet. I will be riding it regularly, and depending on my love affair with the bike I may whittle it down to one and sell my new GS WC. With three kids and three different companies I unfortunately don't have the time to devote to the kind of travel the GS is built for.


Gotta get away from this thread for awhile - it's gonna drive me crazy!

Can't keep away though...
Bobby from BMW Atlanta has detailed a fork conversion here on ADV.

My front end followed his work. I sourced the lower clamp and progressive springs through him. He has two HP2's. The one I saw when I was through there used Ohlins inserts though, which he said he loved.
