Damn nice lookin' bike, Barb! My beastie is way jealous!
I was looking a the silver pieces in between the beak and the tank. But you're right, I'm trying to fit a ADV tank up.
Doesn't it stand to reason that the profile of the tank right there would be the same on either bike or either tank?
No excuses needed Looks awesome and hard to believe there's an 1100 sittin there
The silver part is just a cover panel. It's the same regardless of which tank you use.
The plastic tanks and metal tanks have slightly different profiles at the front. However, the ADV tank should use the same rubber supports as the regular metal tanks. These supports fill the gap between the tank and the cover panel / lateral trim panels up front. The part numbers for the rubber supports are:
46632324873 - Left side
46632324874 - Right side
I have two used rubbers (I know, that sounds bad, but they are in good shape) PM me if you want them. Barb
Travelling light for day ride.
Hi, Frank. Wjhere did you get that back pad for the passenger? I haven't found one yet, that looks at meaty as that one, for the 1100gs.
Well actually my girlfriend did the definive work by rippin of the front end
Start of the complete makeover
Will update it's page in the near future with a simple do it yourself manual, how to fit the light, you need a SR500 bracket, which is suspended from the top yoke.
Did i see this bike last thursday @ the brussels motorshow?
I think i spotted it @ parkin c???
Yep, we thought it being not to far away a good opportunity to see teh V7 in real life (and the dorsoduro) great was our dissapointment, they weren't there, and the flat tire onthe way back didn't exactly add to a positive feeling about the Auw-to Salon
In due time i'll post foto's of it in our collective's fotobook , for now you can look back to four years ago Intermot if you click the link.
New to me 97 1100GS, 50k on the clock, my fisrt BMW motorcycle, needed some comfort and something for the smooth (lol) Australian country roads.
Ps the wife needed somewhere to carry the hairdryer.
Congrats. it looks great
HI, I'M very new to GS. Plan to get a R1100GS but my height was only 1.68m. Not sure if its too high for me?
In term of reliability, any difference between R1100GS and R1150S? Thanks :)
I'm only 1.72m and my R1100GS fits fine. The stock BMW seat has a low and high setting. Plus if you prefer to keep both feet flat on the ground, get shorter shocks. The drawback would be less ground clearance. Life is full of compromises.
Who's that stranger on my bike? I guess I deserve it, I let anyone sit on it.
If my girl can handle it, could it be a problem for You ?
...Talking 'bout my girl, my girl....
There is one catch, and that is that you have to plan where you stop, in corrogated lanes were lorries have dug in raingrooves (dutchlisch...) you have to mak shur the wheel is in the lower part of theradprofile, otherwise your one lag will be too short..
But then again i always remind people of the little giant from belgium who one the Dakar on his overstock heigth R100GS
Gaston Rahier, measuring 1,52 meters (5 feet) crossed the sahara on a bike where the sadle height reached its armpits...
My 96 1100 with 156,000 miles just did a little service on her
