I bought a 2001 R1150GS today!
I was considering replacing my long-in-the-tooth R1100GS when I found this beauty on craigslist. It was set up exactly the way I wanted it - Ohlins suspension, BMW side cases (instead of giant, toaster oven side cases), and very close to stock. The bike is clean. Super clean. Not a scratch on it. The price was right and I decided to make the move.
I feel conflicted by acquiring such a clean, great looking bike as I don't think I can consider myself a "rat biker"
anymore. But I suppose I shouldn't be upset by having found a bike in such great shape.
I'm still a rat biker at heart. I'm sure I'll find a way to make this one look like crap soon.
Below are pics of the new bike, along with one pic of the old and new bike side by side. I'll post more pictures later... stay tuned.
