But this edition of the 1150 is also very nice. I bought for my collection.
It's delicious to see how they were once. Your's, is a reference for future memory.
Mine, for my pleasure, will never return to that innocent condition.
Congratulations.

Insurance company asked me for pictures of the bike. First they said the VIN number didn't exist, then that the bike itself didn't exist, it must be a 1200, not an 1150. Not such a thing as 2006 1150GSA...;-) Yeah. Sure. So, I took a few pictures, including the VIN on the steering column. Then the mileage. "100,000 miles just can't be, sir. You must be mistaken. That's probably a 10,000 miles bike..." Yeah sure. Then they jumped when I mentionned the bike had Ohlins suspension."It looks pricey. Is that going to raise the bike's performance? Is that a performance parts?" No, mam'. Stock suspnesion will last 30,000 miles top and will cost $3k to replace. This one is better, will last 30,000 miles but will only cost $400 to rebuild. Okay then. You're in... ;-)

Just a bit

Fellow inmates,
It might happen some of you, one is enough, still keeps in his junk a bit of an old beak.
My bike has recently been repainted after a light crash that destroyed her front.
Among many other thigs, the beak was replaced and repainted and the tank repaired and repainted. Just forgot to save the broken beak for a color reference besides the color code.
Guess we know that numbers and color sensations might not macht and that was the case.
As I use her frequently off road and new paintings migth be needed in the future, any little piece would be much appretiated.

Yesterday, I replaced the two small needle bearings that hold the final drive to the trailing arm. I removed the brass bushings that were installed by the previous owner. Brass bushing may be great for a racebike, but not a good one for an adventure bike. Brass bushings require a lot of maintenance between greasing and readjustments. After fitting the new bearings, I found I still had a very light play at the wheel, meaning it comes from the crown bearing. Arghhh...

Put my 2006 1150 GSA for sale on eBay this week. Great bike, had fun riding it, but I'm getting older and decided it's just too heavy a bike for me anymore. I really was not riding it much anyway, seems like lately I've been riding other bikes more, it was just sitting in the garage. I'm sure I'll miss it, but it's time to move on to something lighter. I still have my 1200RT for long trips. The RT is not as tall and I can manage it better, I'm always afraid or dropping the GSA.

Steve

Getting ready to do my 73000 mile service, send the shocks to Dan Kyle for their first rebuild, and get the dent fixed on my tank. I love his bike.

The bike was submerged in the water for 30 minutes before I could lift it up by myslef. And now about to swap a 20,000 miles engine into mine, to replace a 106,000 miles motor that shows copper flakes in the oil. Engine was old, but playing submarine didn't help this weekend either. But I think the motor was tired anyway. I will rebuild the old one in winter.

Bike was 2/3 submerged on its side. Electrics are fine. The RID worked. Then got blanked for a night. Then came back.
