Ah...treasured GS moments.
Man, that skid plate is clean!
I've got a 1200GSA but the 1150 is what got me interested in adventure touring (like every other sucker that watched Long Way Round ). Some gorgeous bikes on here, keep 'em coming
Just picked up friday from GSWeaver!
Great photo ..Congr.
This thread makes my heart hurt.
For now I'm just a humble DRZ rider, but I hope to have something to post in here eventually.
R1150GS is my favorite bike ever.
Love this bike! Heated grips are the bomb!

Open up a Photobucket or similar account, it's free. Upload your pic to that acount and go to that pic. Click on the link that says "direct link" and it should say "copied". Go back to where you want to post it in Advrider window and look up at the top of the window you're typing in. There is a little icon there that looks like a mountain with yellow sky, click that.
Another window will open and you just paste your link into it and click ok. Just like magic, your pic is there.
i WANT that shelf!!!!!!!!!!
Little bit of scrap aluminum and a jig saw.
Sorry for the shitty iphone pics, I really should get a camera.
Esp. the one in #929, that Williams paint job is SWEET, esp. in blue/white!
Bought this bike from another inmate. From 50yds it looked ok, up close it was all rather sad. Mechanicaly it had been well cared for, but sitting close to the coast and outside all year, since new, had taken its toll.
So, I've been tearing in to it. So far:
Fork staunchions (pitted)
Fork seals and bushes
Steering joint - knackered
Telever bearings - to powdercoat
Air box - split
Hand grips - worn
Mirrors - stems badly corroded
All control cables and junction box
Collector with Remus
Oil lines - corroded
Front fork spindle - rusty
Fasteners with stainless
Stainless disc bolts all round
Disc rotors front and back, new pads
Worn center and side stand pivots
Fuel q/r's with metal items from beemer boneyard
Bleed screws with Eazibleed
Wheels rebuilt by Woodys
Blue anodising had gone pink and very cruddy due to salt air
Front spokes/nipple corroded
Black powdercoated, new SS spokes and nipple
Podercoating, 40% black
Front mounting frame
Blasted and Painted
Lower fork legs (the aluminum bits)
Lower Fork brace
Cleaned/polished headers - very cruddy
Repainted block and tranny
Brake and clutch flush
Removed carbon cannister, tubes and wiring
Bash plate sanded and polished - just because I could
Shocks substitued for a low mileage, clean set
Fuel filter changed
Tank pads added
Bar risers fitted
Lower footpeg fitted
Straigtened and re-inforced twisted center stand
Fitted Centech fuse panel - wired for heated vests and HID driving lights
Fitted a set of Trailtech HID's with built in ballasts
Fitted steering stop
Wow, looks great! Especially the wheels! I suspect I'll have to do something similar to my "new" bike when I get it tomorrow.
I didn't think the US GSA had a black engine casing and trans:huh
As I recall, the enduro transmission was black. I think there was also an option to specify a black engine. I think other non-GS models were standard as black...maybe the rockster?
The 2003 GS "Sport" models also have black engines.
