1150 a gone'r?

I ride a 1200, but this video would certainly convince me, the 1150 is not to be ignored (you've probably seen it before though ...)

Lots of love for my 1150GS. Not only from me but fellow riders and non-riders alike. The GS gets a lot of compliments.

This paint scheme was one of their best.

The red and white pebble scheme on the R100 was nice also.

Lotsa love







~60K miles on mine and I'm about to rebuild my Ohlins (30K on the stockers, 30K on the Ohlins) and then start saving my pennies for the clutch that I'll prolly need sometime between now and the next shock rebuild at 90K.

She's a keeper.

OP here. I might as well post a pic of my Big Pig. This one was taken last year on my way to visit my parents in Boca Raton, FL.

Have I mentioned that I love this bike!

Here is another at a Track Day at Beaver Run in Western PA.

The 1150 GS will do anything you ask it to do with out complaint. The best all around bike I have ever owned.
