El Martillo, Go to GS Spot FAQ, section 7.4

I recently bought an '01 1150 GS and had asked the same question. Bobby Sands thorough and extremely well thought-out response was moved to the FAQ section. It is the definitive work on the subject (no kidding).

Hope that helps - they are GREAT bikes by the way.

I bought the bike already with this seat. For me it's not better than the original one, I prefered a lot the on piece adventure seat.

I bought my '01 a couple years ago with 22k on it, just turned over 36. That must mean I am the low mileage one for now.



From a trip around Lake Michigan last year. Turned over 30k just before I took that pic.

With all the talk of the hexheads, I am glad there is still love for the 1150



What do a GS and a boat anchor have in common?

Nope. I got just 4000 miles on my 05'. But that will change next year.

eatpasta: nice pics mate

I can't believe GSpot didn't have a Show Us Your 1150 thread before this

Mine, 2001 with 53k on the clock. Taken today at Tan Hill in Yorkshire, the highest Inn in Britain (and the landlord has a World Record for loudest voice, 123 decibels..).



The views were stunning today..

I bought mine in 2001, with 1800 miles on it. It's originally a 2000 model, but lots of parts have been changed over the years... It now has 41200 miles up.

If it's not thrashing the fastest two wheeled machinery known to man, down country lanes lined with stone walls, sometimes in thick fog & driving rain, it's not proper racing - Thank goodness for the TT.....

I am the low mileage king in the thread so far!

My 2004 1150 GSA. I bought it last summer and it had LESS THAN 2500 miles on the clock. It is now about to 12,000 miles. Not bad considering I spent the first half of the year overseas.

I love this bike.

Near Lake Meredith, TX last week. My 2001 GS was purchased in 2007 with 35k on the clock. It's just shy of 91k as parked yesterday. No problems whatsoever with the bike other than it goes thru tires every six months or less.

[quote=gsfreeman2]Looked for the thread, didn't find it, mods, feel free to merge it if I goofed up!

Picked up a new to me 2002 1150 GS last night from GSingWI. It's got 60k miles and I am the 3rd owner. She is very well sorted out for an all-around adventure bike!

Although she's not perfect (one of the bag mounts broke off and Pat fabricated a screw and nut to hold it on; the holes where the pipe's nameplate rivets had been removed had burned small holes through the left bag), overall for the mileage and use she is in A++ condition.

The bike as she was originally for sale... with the Bagster and Tank Panniers on, solo Sargent set up and ready for adventure (Pat kept the Wolfman -- anyone want to sell me theirs?? )


How do you like the sound of the exhaust ? Looks like the Ztechnik stainless steel exhaust system ...
