    Yeah, I should know, but I've never seen a GS in Mystic Red. (I'm sorta color-blind too) I just thought it was a Euro version color and not imported into the USA.

    Oddly enough, I have the same color on my '93 (694 or 684 I think???)

    Mystic Red #689
    Marrakesch Red #641

    Of course that's just the code for the body parts...the actual Glasurit paint code is:

    Mystic Red #323
    Marrakesch Red #222
    Why the Germans decided to have two different codes for the same color :loco

    Here are a couple pics of me and my r80 g/s. It has the ~9gal
    pd tank autographed by Gaston R. , he's riding with me always.
    And yes it does get used. These are from the 2004 Cromag DS ride.

    Great! I'm 5'11" and the air flow goes over my helmet with very little buffeting. At extralegal speeds and in heavy crosswinds it flexes and vibrates a little. I have the stock screen but left it on all summer. I really appreciated it in the late fall and the extended riding season. I'm sure it and the bags knock one or two percent off my gas mileage though.

    Well Clang I hope you're happy:bluduh






    I know I am :super :rilla

    After searching all winter I picked up a 1995 R100GSPD Classic with 17k on the clock. I almost folded on an oilhead in March but the deal fell through thank goodness :nod I don't have pics of my new ride yet but you know what they look like.
    Just wanted to say thanks to everyone for not letting me creep over to the dark side.

    Anyone have a tinted wind screen for sale? :ear
