    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 :lol3). Some gorgeous bikes on here, keep 'em coming :clap

    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.

    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.:clap

    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.

    Wow, looks great! Especially the wheels! I suspect I'll have to do something similar to my "new" bike when I get it tomorrow.

    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.
