The R1100 will grow on you the more miles that you put on it. Like others have said, get to know it, make it yours and it will last a good long time

I have heard that the taller 1st gear on the 1150 is a PIA. However the 6 speed tranny is nicer for highway travel. On 2 land roads, I prefer the 1100

Not another MORE ROAD WORTHY

dual sport tire!
