Maybe the appropriate title should be; "What to do with your low mile 1100R?" As promised to many, I'm starting a thread on how to give your 1100R more off-road capabilities. It would be much easier to say I'm "converting my R to a GS", but I'm not changing everything. Now before the purist or nay-sayers jump in and say, "It's easier and cheaper to just buy a GS...", let me explain why I went through this process: 1. I had an extremely clean '99 with only 19,000 miles. 2. I don't particularly care for the beak on a stock GS. 3. I don't want or need 60+ pounds of fuel on board. 4. I like a good project. 5. These bikes are worth far more than what the blue book says. 6. I already own it. Ok, with that said, here were the parameters for the project: 1. GS suspension and wheels. 2. Better handlebars for offroad use. 3. Has to look "factory". Sounds simple right? It is. Let's take a look at the "donor" bike (not pictured are the System bags). Some will say, "It's too nice to cut up", don't worry, all of the changes are completely reversible. Stay tuned.
