I have a 2002 GS 1150 Adventure. I have had in recent years a problem charging the battery through the accessory outlets. Some of the time it has worked and other times not.

I have ridden the 1150 and did like the adjustable windshield. I wish my 2002 GS did not have ABS, I could do without the complexity.

I prefer the look of the 1100, it appears more euro, at least...

R1100RT vs R1150RT

How do you compare the two? Is the very clear choice the 1150, or does the 1100 have virtues not to be found in the 1150?

I consider looking for one of these someday to have in addition to my GS.

Yes, thank you, that's my mental picture, since that is what I wear.

I cringe whenever I see people wearing the traditional, open faced helmets. It's like seeing people riding in athletic shorts.

I have to admit, I don't see how a coil-over shock could have it's static height change from an oil leak. The spring should determine that, I would think.

I bought it new; it was the original bulb. I can easily believe the 1157 remark, because the bulb sold to me looks quite conventional. And, it works!
