Actually, the R1100GS was the first Oilhead. You're right about the R1150RS though...a great bike, and BMW totally disappointed us with the R1200ST. I went over to Aprilia and don't look back fondly.

I hope the new GT isn't too little Sport for $16k and I will give it a look...aprilia parts are getting scarce!
