Hi, I am looking at upgrading my current ride (2006 dr650 great bike) but now am looking at a 1996 bmw r1100gs with about 24,000 miles in like new condition and has all maintenance records as well. I have read how good, reliable and versital these bikes are, but my only concern is that it is 17 years old. This would be my first BMW and I really like the bike. Would that be a reasonable concern? I am not trying to start any debates, I would just like to hear from some of you out there. Thanks!
