2006 BMW R1150GS ADV Registry

I just had an idea... since there are so few of these bikes out there would anyone else be interested in participating in a registry? For example, my last three would be 446. As we're pretty sure there are no more than 300 out there, this should be enough, right?

If I hosted it would anyone participate?

From the looks of it, it appears to only be paint and trim color differences...as usual with any of these "special edition models".

Here's mine doing what it does best......

Had a bit of a debate with the service manager at the local dealership when I asked a question about a spec. He told me an "06 1150 GS did not exist. After a polite exchange he new what I was talking about. There is some confusion as they made both the 1150 and 1200 in '06.

Registry

Thanks for your interest in the registry! I am going to host it as a page on my website www.ericsyn.com at first, and if it takes off we'll start a whole new site. When you get a chance, please PM or email me the last three of your VIN, the production month and year on your sticker, your name, location, and any short comment you might want to add that the public will see (email address, trips, farkles, etc.). I should have the page up in a couple of days.
Thanks!
Eric

Haha I've gone through that a few times, too. Usually when I say "the white one" they realize what bike I have.

I had an even worse time with the insurance company. As a matter of fact, this registry might help, down the road, if anybody suffers any losses. Might be a good idea to track purchase prices, if possible.

Double A-Ron. Love the sheepskin. Damn nice photos (why is my bike always last? hmmm). But you do have to ride the bike to have it count. Sorry.

OT: Welcome back. Glad you lived through Mexico. . Sign me, Uncle Dumbass. (Ask your bro.)
Further OT: And get your own screenname, stop using your brother Justin's. Sheesh. They are FREE.
