    Here's my 1996 with almost 38k miles. I've put 8k on it since I bought it in March this year. I have to admit, I love this bike!

    Fighter,
    Tell me about that front beak. I don't believe I've ever seen one quite like that.

    Originally built by my buddy Griz from S.Dakota.
    He had it on his 1100 until that bike was totaled on icy Spearfish Canyon.
    He sent the beak to me, I reworked it and installed in on Big Bird.

    Magnificent job! That is how they should have been from the start. In my opinion the 1100s were the best gs so far. It seems with each new model that comes out they just get more unreliable and with a higher price tag. Didn't hear much about major problems with the 1100s. I hesitate to purchase any new BMW until they fix the rearends. Too many failures happened in the iron butt this year. I did not participate but felt ashamed when I read about the number or rearend failures. Again, beautiful bike and looks very light.

    I reread Brent's post and forgot to add the weight. Sorry Brent. The bike weighs in at around 450 lbs. (204 Kg.) full of gas and oil and regular air in the tires.:lol3 It started out like this:

    Today was my first "real" ride on the bike and it was simply amazing!! I can see why people take these to the track too, simply amazing in the curves! :super

    Riding through the areas damages by the fires was eerie . . .

    The 1100 has one major gripe and thats the tranny, first years the 3rd tends to wear out quick, and the subframe tears itself out of the gearbox, but thats easily fixed with touratech hardparts (if you have a 11 without *get* them !)

    This is mine just after I painted the tank, beak, and tailfeather -- and just before the paint started bubbling and peeling back off the tank. This look lasted about two weeks. Maybe I will get in line at BeemerBoneyard for a metal tank when one shows up -- next winter's project.

    It just went through 60K miles. The seats are from Rick Mayer. Came with that Staintune exhaust, so now I am illegal in Denver. I mostly use this for looking around the beautiful contryside here in northern Colorado. Having a GS makes it all that much better, no need to stay on pavement. Better tires would help for that, but these Tourances are OK for now. Next problem to solve: air over that stock windscreen hits me about eye level -- wind noise driving me to tinnitus even with ear plugs under a helmet.

    Always starts & runs fine. Everything works: ABS brakes, tranny, and no surging. The right TB rattles a bit, needs a new shaft but OK for now. Amazing how small problems seem as long as I can ride it.
