Hello,

My name is Jakar and I have an airhead, but hey it has an oil cooler stuck on the crashbar. It is an addiction, you can ask my friends.

Jakar, there's a cure for that oil cooler problem. Can you say relocation kit? I knew you could. Seriously, after dumping mine on the right side several times on trails I prolly had no business on, I moved mine to the safer, center location. I do have the low fender, though.

1994 version. 27,000 miles.

I bought it at 20,000, and soon after the transmission died. So I had Omar Sayied rebuild the transmission and when I assembled it, it got a new driveshaft. Last owner tried to rebuild the transmission, but didn't shim it right, and ruined the output shaft bearing and the driveshaft.



I added Wirth springs up front and a Progressive shock. I also changed the front brake line to stainless for a nice improvement.

Goes great now.

Sorry, no pics with me. I ride an '89 R100GS, blue and white, pretty much stock, plus skid plates, high fender, etc. Best bike I've ever owned...and seen plenty of dirt, too!

Gspd

I had a 95 just like the first one pictured. Never shoulda sold it. I was riding with friends, all on Harley's during Bike Week, and taking a lot of flack all week about how ugly my bike was. Sitting in the Daytona traffic one day, a guy jumps out of his car, runs back to me and my buddies and asks if he can take a picture of me and my GSPD! The laugh was on the Harley guys the rest of the week.

I bought this new but I just sold it, so I guess I'm not committed. Can I post this anyway?

Let my '91 go a few years back.........Life was missing an important piece of the puzzle until I found a '95 PD classic last year.
