Great! I'm 5'11" and the air flow goes over my helmet with very little buffeting. At extralegal speeds and in heavy crosswinds it flexes and vibrates a little. I have the stock screen but left it on all summer. I really appreciated it in the late fall and the extended riding season. I'm sure it and the bags knock one or two percent off my gas mileage though.

Anybody have an extra airhead GS with low miles for sale?
PM me if so
Well Clang I hope you're happy






I know I am

After searching all winter I picked up a 1995 R100GSPD Classic with 17k on the clock. I almost folded on an oilhead in March but the deal fell through thank goodness I don't have pics of my new ride yet but you know what they look like.
Just wanted to say thanks to everyone for not letting me creep over to the dark side.

Anyone have a tinted wind screen for sale?

I had nothing to do with it. I am innocent I tell you INNOCENT! I was at a tuba lesson. That's my story and I'm sticking to it



Congrats gooney!! You have been saved from the dark side

YES I am a committed airhead gs rider

I have owned my 1981 R80g/spd for just over 2 years. The more I ride it, the more I enjoy it. Here are some pictures from a ride this summer with Esteban.

Riding the CO Trail.



Riding to Boot Mtn. with Mesa Mtn in the background, RGNF.



Enjoying the singletrac on a twin.



The mighty BOXER in a squize...

Posted that just after the first of the year. Got it all back together and have been riding the wheels off it.
Went DG in Hot Springs NC and BYOB in WV, along with a bunch of other short trips.

G(/)S ... what else!

I am coming to grips with what I need and am on two G?S':


A 1982 R80G/S with Paris-Dakar accessoires and in need of a serious restoration (http://www.stephenbottcher.net/BMW/dakar.htm)





A 1993 R100GS PD which needs a new frame
(http://www.stephenbottcher.net/BMW/dakar2.htm)



Had my first ride on that G/S yesterday and was gobsmacked: nimble, quick, lightweight ... a blast even if only up and down the road. I will have a lot of fun on it, I know.
