    Summer of 2016: travelled with some friends into France. We camped at Le Clerjus in Les Vosges : www.motorhotel.eu/.
    Later that vacation i stayed at Innsbruck in Austria en on the way back in Montmedy near Reims.
    This year i want to visit Millau in France and Bardenas Reales Navarra in Spain.
    In a few weeks i will pass the 200.000 km. 20160808_181945.jpg P1010680.JPG P1010680.JPG

    Just purchased my first R1100GS. It's a little rough around the edges, but planning on some TLC to get it back into shape. 00d0d_6U145MjB3je_1200x900.jpg

    I have an 1100gs also and love it. 114k miles, and will need to do transmission soon. Love that you do the work. I will try myself also. Here's pics of mine.

    Hey, congratulations! I saw that one on Craigslist and was tempted, but right now I don't have the time, money, or space for another one. Glad to see it is in good hands.

    Anyone in Salt lake City area: Ricardo Kuhn is GIVING AWAY a pile of GS bits, including several part engines and all sorts of other things. He says it's about to go in the dumpster after no interest in the Good Karma thread. Seems like someone should go and rescue it all, even if they're only going to put it on eBay - at least there will be parts available for the rest of us. If I was close by I'd load up the back of my truck and catalog the parts for whomever might need something.

    EDIT: Ricky is in SLC area, not Vegas - Duh!

    Ricky is actually in Salt Lake City over on the east side. Health problems and in the midst of a move to a new domicile. SLC is a 2000-mile round trip for me. Too much. I'll be passing through there in a couple of months but I'm guessing that'll be after the fact.
