I like both.

That was just after their New Year's Day bath.

Picked up this puppy yesterday, and just took it for its first ride in the countryside - the St Andrews Pub for lunch in the 33 heat. Boy, this thing is BIG!

Be gentle with me guys, I'm new here....

Congrats on the 1200... but here's a pic so we can enjoy the beauty of the "original" GSA

Yep. The white 1150 Adventure was '06 only -- the last of the line.

They are sharp.

There's not a whole lot that needs to be painted if you want to change the color.

True. It wouldn't take much to convert to a white 1150. From what I have learned there was only 171 '06 1150 GSA sent to the US.

In the past 15 years, I've been without a GS for 6 months. It was the most boring 6 months I've ever had.

Had to post a few of my old 1100gs "Brunhilda"

At home:


In Norway:


In Tuscany:


And my "new" 1150, "Nightwish" getting clean (yes, it's named after the cheesy Finnish metal band, long story):


With my two highly trained bike mechanics:

more pics

Funny, I would have thought this thread would be hotter. I'm picking up an 01 in the next few days. Always loved the look. I was hoping to steal a few customizing ideas. I'll be sure and post pics when I get mine. BTW, anyone seen one in Camo paint?

Very difficult to observe well-done camo paint......
real hard to see.



Sorry... couldn't resist.
