Whew! big job. I must admit I haven`t been following Pampa`s thread, even though I had seen it. My plan is to have just one bike. My body is too fragile to do much knarly stuff, but I still need a bike for long distance and dirt roads, so an R100GS will be perfect for me. My 1100Gs is a great bike, but is getting too heavy for me in heavy going. When I buy a R100GS, depending on its condition, it will either go for profe$$ional rebuilding straight away, or I will ride it and get things done when needed. I`ve got a couple of options on how it can be set up, depending on whether I end up with a GS or a PD. Whichever way I go, the bike will still have to be able to do fairly comfortable back to back 1000Km days.
