MoMan, nice GS. I always like that colour scheme. I like your chopped windshield too. Does it still offer any kind of wind protection or is it primarily for its' Hooliganish good looks?

A little of both...no matter how I adjusted the windshield, the wind either hit me in the face or the neck which both made for a lot of wind noise and buffeting. I used Mr. Dremel to cut it down and spray painted the inside black. My head is now in a clean air stream. I also mount my GPS & XM antennas to the windshield.

Count me in! I had a '90GSPD, '95 GSPDC, and a '98 GS1100 75th anniversary, sold the '90 and '98. The '95 is the best between the three imho. I did like the red and white colors of the others though. Wonderful, comfortable bike. I hope I don't lose my mind and sell it.

The truck was busted (until about an hour ago), Gaspipe wife's car is FUBAR and she's using the spare clunker. So I've been riding everyday for a few weeks while waiting on parts for the cars to come in.

It's rained almost every damned day. WTF?

I put new rubber on it a few nights ago. I still love this bike.

Yeah, I should know, but I've never seen a GS in Mystic Red. (I'm sorta color-blind too) I just thought it was a Euro version color and not imported into the USA.

Mystic Red #689
Marrakesch Red #641

Of course that's just the code for the body parts...the actual Glasurit paint code is:

Mystic Red #323
Marrakesch Red #222
Why the Germans decided to have two different codes for the same color
