    Annie,


    Do not, no do not, sell your airhead, firstly, she's rather tasty, and secondly, you get squat for a trade in, is she worth the price of a set of panniers, or an old GPS????? No, I keep one of each now, not because I can afford it, but because they are so different.
    So, if you can make it, keep the old girl.
    My girlfriend still prefers to pillion on the 100GS (she is only 5'2" so the only bike that makes it for her size is 50-125cc learners) Otherwise she would be on some airhead too.

    Too bad the damn stock market crashed ... :cry :cry

    Custom rear rack, bag mounts, frame-up rebuild, frame gussets closed up, extra bracing, Works shock, custom headlight (K75, idiot LED lights in the top of the bucket), Acerbis tank, fender and hand protectors. Omega diode board (not the rotor, as you can't replace them with a stock size), all new wiring, new cubes for all the electrics, rebuilt Hall unit, tranny rebuild, total engine rebuild, .. I'm forgetting a ton of stuff. So far, 22K miles on it since rebuild. No oil use (went to Ouray from BC and back without topping up) and about 44 mpg when fully loaded. Speed kills the mpg, so usually I get about 37 mpg :D .

    Just bought this beauty to add to the garage. The windscreen is coming off and low euro bars are on order. Might add dual discs someday but it will be a weekend toy and back-up daily commuter.

    This '74 was beautifully restored by Chris Hughes/ Motorcycle Classics in Spokane.

    It makes a great addition to my '01 1150GS.

    I agree...luck is the key word. I guess if you live long enough you get to win one and have your 15 minutes of fame. In my case, I feel like a winner every time I turn the key and those big del Orto carbs fire up. It's an interesting comparison riding the R90S and then hopping on the 1150GS. You really feel much more connected to the bike on the R90, even though it doesn't do anything as well as the GS. I guess a good analogy would be comparing swimming in the ocean to swimming in a calm pool. When you're in the ocean you know you're part of something bigger. The R90 makes me feel that way... :nod

    Hello--I just saw a picture of your PD and noticed the Givi rack on the rear.I have the 52l case and mounting plate but haven't figured out a way to attach it to my '88 GS or '92PD.How did you attach your rack does Givi sell a mount that works for the GS or GSPD? Thanks.John O'Leary

    Here is my 1985 R80G/S PD. Modified engine with a Siebenrock power up kit to 1000cc. Has a modified exhaust and runs a HPN 43Litre tank. WP rear shock and internally modified front end.

    This is about 100miles east of Innamincka in Australia.

    Sweet ... we have a lot of the same mods. I need to get some round covers, they look real nice on the G/S.
