Went over to the UK Chrsitmas eve. Purchased an 1150GSA. Left on xmas day - London, Paris, Pisa, Rome, Siena, Florence, Bologna and Milan where we parked the bike up.

New Years day, having lunch on the Italian coast about 100miles north of Rome.

Went back at the start of Feb. Did a few upgrades (shocks, seat, etc). Took the ferry from Ancona, Italy across to Greece. Toured around a bit. Parked the bike up in Athens. Going back in May.



Bike working on its tan in Nafplio, Greece.

I'm not real sure. The seat was on the bike when I bought it 9 years ago and I didn't ask. Based on the stitching, I believe it's from here:

If anyone knows for sure, please chime in.

The top pic is the same seat with an Alaska Sheepskin pad on it.

I can't be sure from that photo, but I suspect it's either a Rick Mayer or a Russell Day Long where the passenger portion's padding was kept stock. You can't go wrong with either seat.

I've got a 1200GSA but the 1150 is what got me interested in adventure touring (like every other sucker that watched Long Way Round ). Some gorgeous bikes on here, keep 'em coming

This thread makes my heart hurt.

For now I'm just a humble DRZ rider, but I hope to have something to post in here eventually.

R1150GS is my favorite bike ever.
