Was it only for the 1150? What is the real scoop and how come you don't see em too much?

Is that a Yamaha?

Life is like riding a bicycle, to keep your balance you must keep moving.
Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved. Hell, some of the places I’ve been there weren’t even roads!

Just maybe the nicest color scheme on a GS to date.

It;s worth mentioning here that these are the late Williams BMW F1 colours.

BMW Blue and White specials always look like tits.

2 year run 01-02 on the GS

K100RS blue and white is drop dead.

Rarer however was the red and white 1100GS

New Home for a 1999 Special Edition R1100GS

I bought this R1100GS on eBAY a couple of weeks ago. It is being transported from California to Wisconsin. I should have it around Thanksgiving. Admittedly it is not that super cool blue and white that all you guys have, but I actually like how 'ugly' it is in silver and yellow.
