Real motorcycles all have tubes. And real motorcyclists know how to spoon rubber trailside. I did read the Classic is tubeless, though.

Uberaudi, nice looking bike. The seat looks like the BMW comfort seat off my 2000 RT. Chrome gauges and light are nice too.

When I bought my Red R, their was only one in the state. There were a few classic models around, but I don't like spoke wheels or tubes and yes they do have them. The wheels are not like on a GS.

I also looked up the CB1100. 550 lbs, I don't know if its wet or dry. 80 hp. Twin tube cradle frame. Reminds me of my 78 CB750A I had in 79-81. It was a sweet bike for the time. I remember that single un drilled rotor the most. That bike stopped about as well as my 76 airhead before I switched it to dual disc. Worse in the rain. Apples to oranges comparing it to an R. The new CB1100 has dual disc and I am sure it stops just fine.

Looking at a parabellum scout in RED. Wish I would have bought it first.

David wishing the winter away.

Can anybody help with a source for hand guards and a windshield for my 99? I've seen looking everywhere and only find dead threads.

I just bought a set of GS handguards from the fleamarket here. Bolt on and fit perfect.

Here's my '97 1100R. I looked at bikes for a long time until I pulled the trigger on this one. It's my first bike and I always had a hankering for BMWs in general.

150,000 Km on mine, runs like a German engineering stereotype. I replaced the head gaskets due to a nagging oil seep. Old style headgaskets degraded over the life of the bike, new ones are four layer metallic and are lifetime parts. Service is a joke even for a bike newb.

It is the Z Technik Vstream sport windscreen. A bit pricey at about $300 but excellent product. Comes with all mounting hardware as it does not use the same mounting points as the BMW screen.

Cheers,

WOW! that is a good looking bike!

Does it have the stock exhaust? I would like to hear one of these with a good aftermarket can on it.

I don't much care for the seat, though. It looks painful to me.

I found it to be pretty good actually when I tried the bike. The "only" issue was that it pretty much locked me into a single position. Not much sliding back or forward possible.
