Hey fella!

I did a lot of mile on my alpine white and blue R100gs. Great bike. WP springs are fine. Do you know what oil to put in what leg?

I wouldnt get too worked up about the carbs if they are working..


SWWWWWWWWWWWWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEt bike its my personal favorite.

The bike feels really plugged up engine wise, I understand that the 40mm carbs will hurt the low end torque but increase the hp in the upper rpm's plus improve my gas mileage. I am getting the Wp suspension from Lindemann Engineering. It is $115 for the springs and the shock is $720.00 which has a 2 month waiting period. Alot of money, but it is a fully adjustable unit. I picked the bike up for $3k by the way, all though it needed a diode board 2 weeks later.

Bahn Stormers: Clearly you now have one of the best airheads available. A very manly bike certain to crush all others beneath it's tires. No other color scheme can even come close to comparing to it.

...i may be a bit biased though...

might just need a little tuning - a simple valve adjustment and carb synch can make a world of difference in the overall feel. Do you know the recent service history?

Got me one of the 94 gspd's. Red & white w/ the wierd gravel graphics. I call it the Wicked Pig (thus my screen name) because she tends to become pigly and cause uncommanded dismounts from time to time. But, I love her still...

Bike's looking just fine, why don't you strip and overhaul mine instead this winter? More needy a cause here me thinks!

Bob



Bought in a nice town in a nice part of a nice country: Markgröningen:



No idea what was going on.....



Waiting to be plated in Böblingen.



The customary crossing of the Danube..




Lake Neuchatel In Switzerland - and why the hell I didnt say hello to Jörg whilst there is beyond me - my stupidity is deeper than their lakes.



And outside of my house in Barcelona. Great ride. But then pretty much all rides are....

So, DID you just buy the 95 GS Classic Bob? Boy, that's sure a nice one! Then Again, I rarely see one that's not nice! Good Luck with it.

Yep I bought the 9th of June. and rode it home.

happy I am!

In fact today I managed to lock the rear brake and skid - most airhead I have owned couldnt.

And reminiscing I burnt my leg on the right cylinder - I was riding in shorts. Happy days.
