    I guess there is an intentional promotion of the self, calling something grey as silver.
    On the other side, white is white even if dirt.

    Hey guys, just thought I'd put the word out--you know those concrete guard pillars they put around gas pumps? Well I smacked one really well with the front right side of my gas tank, leaving a tennis ball-sized dent.

    If you run across an ADV tank for sale, please pass it on. I'd be much obliged. Thanks.

    ^^^ Indeed looks new. Nice.

    Mine has 100,000 miles (160,000km) and was well maintained by previous owners. I spent winter going over the bike. Spring is coming.

    In regard of GSA fuel tanks, they are not easy to get. Haven't seen one in North America for the past 3 months. They do come up for sale on UK ebay though. But people won't ship.

    I do fancy the new 1200 LC (GSA) and it will be delivered to me in week 14.:clap
    But this edition of the 1150 is also very nice. I bought for my collection.

    It's delicious to see how they were once. Your's, is a reference for future memory.
    Mine, for my pleasure, will never return to that innocent condition.
    Congratulations.

    Insurance company asked me for pictures of the bike. First they said the VIN number didn't exist, then that the bike itself didn't exist, it must be a 1200, not an 1150. Not such a thing as 2006 1150GSA...;-) Yeah. Sure. So, I took a few pictures, including the VIN on the steering column. Then the mileage. "100,000 miles just can't be, sir. You must be mistaken. That's probably a 10,000 miles bike..." Yeah sure. Then they jumped when I mentionned the bike had Ohlins suspension."It looks pricey. Is that going to raise the bike's performance? Is that a performance parts?" No, mam'. Stock suspnesion will last 30,000 miles top and will cost $3k to replace. This one is better, will last 30,000 miles but will only cost $400 to rebuild. Okay then. You're in... ;-)
