Remus- what kind of aux lights did you put on it? It looks pretty much identical to mine.

Mine.............

It's a 1999 1100GS which I bought this summer with only 11,000 miles on her and in A1 condition & completely stock, with the exception of H&B Bars and full Ti Remus.

I took these off and sold them, to refit the stock exhaust

I plan to install Ohlins on her as the only mod

I already have a 1150Adv............so the 1100GS is a great addition and a different bike to ride

You're not the only one, and I don't get it. Why do you need more than one R1xxxGS?

Because they are different motorcycles

Sure they have Paralever/Telelever and a Boxer Twin.............but they're different GS's to ride

Haven't done much to it yet - cheap aux lights, a loud horn, and the Sargent (which I bought right here on ADV!). Low exhaust for full-size left-bagness is a Remus rig with no cat conv. It came w/the Givi screen on it and a beat-up BMW topcase that I guess I'll find a use for sooner or later.

This is my 2nd R1100GS, and hopefully my last - I'd like to ride this one for the rest of my days



That is my garage it's parked in front of - but that's also where it stays parked rain, snow, wind, or shine (or any combination of them). Garage has been converted to living space.

That's a nice lookin' GS. I remember when mine looked like that.

Dear Ernst,

Thank you for all the details. A few days ago I have sent you a pair of emails about the R3B.
Now I got more informations on this post (I didnt see it before..).
Let me ask please a further question:
how / where do you suggest to fix the headlight?
This is an important issue I think.
I already ordered a 20 cm diameter headlight from a Dutch store.
Please, could you give me some suggestions how to build a proper bracket?

I hope to build my own R3B2, if you agree with the name


Thanks a lot!
Yours,

gioi - sicily

PS:
Are the TCK 80 so dangereuse in wet road? I thought to use them also for each day..
They look so great and wilde on the GS!

I did 10,000km on an 02 1150GS before I bought my 1100. There's not that much difference.

Tank Fitment

How did you get the plastic side pieces to fit so nicely up against the 1150 tank?

My '95 11GS - Best bike ever? I don't know...could be.

Here's a shot of my '95 with Givis on it. What a bike. 44k on the ol' clicker so far...I'm hoping I can squeak out a good 80~90k before heading off to 12GS land. Lot's of great examples in this thread...but I've gotta admit, the one that starts it off really kicks some serious ass! Talk about sweet. Well done building that bad boy up

Which pieces are you referring to? The metal tanks for the 1100 and 1150 are the same (excluding the Adv tank, of course.)
