Lots of respect

After 16 years and almost 200 000 KM this 1994 R1100gs with the original plastic tank got me home after 14 hrs of non stop riding...Only the GS can do this and last that long in such style and grace.

BMW you have my respect and admiration for your motorcycles.

BMW you have my respect and admiration for your motorcycles.

Where did you ride? Was that 16 years straight or in parts?

I wouldn't trade my GS, just hope it makes the distance the 1100 did.
